US president Donald Trump has been filmed commenting on the appearance of the French president’s wife as he toured a Paris landmark.

Video footage posted on the French government’s official Facebook page showed Trump, Emmanuel Macron and their wives chatting after a tour of the museums at Les Invalides.

As they were saying goodbye, Trump turned to Brigitte Macron and gestured towards her body.

“You know, you’re in such good shape,” he said, before repeating the observation to her husband. “Beautiful,” he added.

Trump is in Paris this week after being invited by Macron to mark Bastille Day, the French holiday to celebrate their revolution which takes place on July 14.
