French President Emmanuel Macron arrives in Washington for a state visit likely to be dominated by differences with the United States over trade and the nuclear accord with Iran. US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump help their first state dinner on Tuesday night, honoring the French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte. The Macrons were welcomed to the White House on Monday afternoon for the Trump administration's first state visit. After an official arrival ceremony on Tuesday morning, the Trumps hosted their first state dinner on Tuesday night at the opulent White House State Room. And though everything from the gold-themed dinner to the military band seemed perfectly orchestrated, by the FLOTUS herself, the Trump administration's first state visit wasn't without its fair share of painfully awkward moments.
