Yes, it's as tragic as it sounds.

I love the cuts between Macron, smiling and enjoying "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" and "Up All Night", and Trump, sitting their all steely gazed and confused, wondering why the band isn't playing "The Star Spangled Banner".

July 14 is Bastille Day (aka la Fête nationale), marking the storming of the Bastille in 1789 - a key moment in the French Revolution.

USA officials probing Russian lobbyist who met Trump team
And then beyond all of that, he has in the past worked with the Russian lawyer involved in this meeting, Natalia Veselnitskaya . He has previously registered with Congress for the lobbying work, and he plans to raise this issue before Grassley's committee.

However, there was something special in store for the people of France today: a military band had prepared a medley of one of France's greatest musical exports, Daft Punk. Appearing in the video are President Emmanuel Macron and various guests (including Donald Trump). Trump's probably a purist and prefers the more electronics studio version, or perhaps the live performance from Alive 2007.

Another said: "Do you think this visit was actually just so Macron could troll Trump and subliminally call him a "Daft Punk"?" Then, as the presidents and first ladies watched from a platform, they moved into the more upbeat medley of Daft Punk music, highlighted by the French electronic duo's 2013 hit "Get Lucky".
