"The US did not accept (a common position) during the ministerial talks.so one of the key issues is to try and obtain the commitment from all the G7 members and the Americans", said a second diplomat before the Trump-Macron meeting. "Congratulations, great job", Trump said.

But Macron, France's 39-year-old political wunderkind, appeared to be ready for him when they met for lunch at the United States embassy in Brussels ahead of a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit.

Their knuckles "turned white", their "jaws clenched", and their "faces tightened" during the death grip they shared, according to the Washington Post.

After a defence council held earlier on Wednesday, French President Emmanuel Macron said seeking to prolong emergency security rules for three months more until November 1 as part of the government's plan to tackle terrorism forces operating on French soil.

THE FACTS: Trump may never have explicitly endorsed any candidate in France's election, but he had only nice things to say about one candidate: Le Pen.

Macron is seeking a new extension of the state of emergency, which expires on July 15 after being extended "to preserve our democracy" - referring to France's recent presidential vote and coming legislative elections.

French President Emmanuel Macron pressed Europeans to strengthen security cooperation and intelligence-sharing after a deadly attack in Manchester as he arrived in Brussels for a meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation military alliance on Thursday. World leaders, including French President Emmanu.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said she plans to discuss the leaks with her American counterpart at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation gathering to "make clear to President Trump that intelligence that is shared between our law enforcement agencies must remain secure". In that shake, Trump simply clamped down and refused to let go.

After embracing the German leader and shaking hands with others, Macron then shakes hands with Trump who proceeds to yank at his arm and pull at him. "It is simply a harmless situation", he told reporters after the summit.

While in Belgium, Trump will unveil a memorial to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the only time in the alliance's history that the Article 5 mutual defense pledge has been invoked.

Final tally: Trump 3, World 3.
