    President Donald Trump was captured complimenting the French president's wife's appearance in video posted by the French government's Facebook account.

    The footage shows Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron and their wives chatting after their tour of the museums at Les Invalides.

    Trump at one point turns to Brigitte Macron and tells her: "You're in such good shape."

    He repeats the observation to the French president before turning back to the French first lady, and remarking: "Beautiful."

    Brigitte Macron was her husband's former high school teacher and their relationship has drawn international attention because of their age difference. Feminist have denounced the comments as sexist, noting that the Macrons' age difference is identical to that of Donald and Melania Trump.
