‘We have to make him perfect’: Trump brushes 'dandruff' off Macron’s suit (VIDEO)
As US President Donald Trump and his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron posed for photographs in the Oval Office Tuesday, Trump took the opportunity to sweep a fleck of dandruff off Macron’s suit in front of the world’s press.
“We do have a very special relationship,” said Trump. “In fact I’ll get that little piece of dandruff off you.”
After sweeping the fleck off Macron’s suit, Trump declared: “We have to make him perfect. He is perfect. It’s great to be with you and you’re a special friend.” Macron smiled through the awkward encounter and appeared unbothered by it.
A White House press pool report said that the president brushed “lint” off the French leader’s suit coat, but Twitter users called it a “diplomatic power move” and an “international embarrassment.”

Trump just announced to the world that he's such great pals with the French President that he could reach over & brush a bit of dandruff off his coat for him if he wanted to, and then proceeded to do just that. Oy.Trump is an international embarrassment.@realDonaldTrump— Ron Asher (@rmasher2) 24 апреля 2018 г.

What a creep @realDonaldTrump is. Announcing he’s brushing off dandruff from Emanuel Macron’s jacket is so low class.— Adorable marciarusso (@marciarusso) 24 апреля 2018 г.

Trump talked about what a friend he is to Macron as he announces to the press he is brushing dandruff off Macron's jacket.Embarassing doesn't even cover it.— Denizcan James (@MrFilmkritik) 24 апреля 2018 г.
Macron is in Washington this week for the first official state visit of Trump’s presidency. The visit will give the two leaders a chance to strengthen their own and their countries’ bonds, as well as discuss issues such as the Iran deal and global trade.
