US President Donald Trump told the French first lady that she was in “such good shape” during a meeting in France on Thursday.
Trump and First Lady Melania Trump met with French president Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte Macron, in Paris ahead of Bastille Day celebrations on Friday.
After the Trumps and the Macrons toured the museums at Les Invalides, Trump turned to the French first lady and told her “you’re in such good shape,” according to footage posted to Facebook by the French government.
After repeating the statement to the French president, Trump turned to Brigitte Macron again and called her “beautiful.”
Brigitte Macron, 64, is 25 years older than Emmanuel, whom she met while she was his school teacher outside Paris.
Trump and Melania have a near identical age gap, as the President is 24 years older than the First Lady.
Trump has often commented on women’s appearances in public — whether telling the new Irish prime minister that a reporter has “a nice smile on her face,” tweeting that MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski was “bleeding badly form a face-lift,” or commenting on then-presidential candidate Carly Fiorina‘s face during the campaign.
