President Donald Trump has been captured complementing French president's wife appearance in video posted by the French presidential Facebook account.
The footage shows Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron and their wives chatting after their tour of the museums at Les Invalides on Thursday.
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."
Bridgette Macron was her husband's former high school teacher and their relationship has drawn international attention because of their age difference.
The comments have been denounced as sexist, noting that the Macrons' age difference is identical to that of Donald and Melania Trump.
