You're in such good shape, beautiful, Trump tells Macron's wife

US President Donald Trump praised French First Lady Brigitte Macron for being in “such good shape” during his first official visit to Paris, the media reported.

“You’re in such good shape. She’s in such good physical shape. Beautiful,” Trump told the French President’s wife on Thursday, who was standing next to US First Lady Melania Trump.

Earlier in the day, at the welcome ceremony in Paris, Trump and Brigitte Macron extended their hands to one another, fumbling to make contact for a handshake, before they embraced for a traditional kiss on the cheek. Afterward, they rejoined hands while they continued to talk, reports CNN.

However, social media immediately reacted with many users denouncing Trump’s comments as sexist, reports the Guardian.
