    Paris (CNN)As French President Emmanuel Macron arrived at the Arc de Triomphe for a national televised Armistice Day Ceremony, Vice President Kamala Harris -- donning the traditional bleuet de France honoring veterans -- waited to greet him.As they clasped arms, the chummy chemistry that had begun to emerge between the pair was on display for all to see -- an outward sign of the latest US attempt to mend its relationship with France following a submarine affair that provoked a diplomatic rift between the two old allies. "It's important for us to be here," Harris told Macron as they embraced. "We have a long and shared history -- and future." The moment was just one of several images that defined Harris' tightly choreographed five-day trip to the French capital and told the story that Harris -- and President Joe Biden, who dispatched her there -- intended to tell: that of a French-American relationship back on track. The trip also served as an opportunity for Harris to emerge onto the European diplomatic stage for the first time as vice president, successfully...
    Doug Emhoff defended his wife Kamala Harris during the couple's official visit to France, saying being a woman and a trailblazer is 'hard,' as the White House doubled down in backing the vice president.  'One of things I've learnt from being married to Kamala Harris is that to be first in so many things is hard. She said once that breaking barriers involves breaking, and when you break something sometimes you get cut, and when you get cut, sometimes you bleed,' Emhoff said Thursday at an event with France's Minister for Gender Equality.  'But it's worth it,' he noted. His comments come as Harris' approval rating has reached a historic low level, with only 28 per cent thinking she is doing a good job, according to the USA Today/Suffolk poll, out on November 8. And a 51 per cent majority of respondents said they disapproved of the job Harris is doing as vice president.

    (CNN)Vice President Kamala Harris will pursue US efforts to strengthen a recently mended French-American relationship during a trip to Paris next week, where she will also attend a pair of international conferences.Harris will sit down for a bilateral meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron at the Élysée Palace next Wednesday before delivering remarks at the Macron-hosted Paris Peace Forum and participating in a multilateral conference on Libya. Harris' trip comes less than two months after France temporarily recalled its ambassador to the US to protest a US nuclear submarine deal with Australia, which sank a separate French contract to build conventional submarines for Australia. President Joe Biden last week sat down with Macron on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Rome and acknowledged that the US had been "clumsy" in its handling of the matter. "The key message for this meeting is the importance of this relationship and the fact that US-French partnership matters to the world," a senior administration official said of the Harris-Macron meeting. Harris will be the most senior American official to attend the Paris Peace...
    Top U.S. diplomats will fly to Paris next week in the latest effort to repair relations with France which were upended when Australia ditched a French submarine contract in favor of a deal with Washington. Paris withdrew its ambassador last month in a full-blown diplomatic row as ministers accused President Biden of stabbing them in the back. But Ambassador Philippe Etienne announced he had returned on Thursday and issued a photograph of himself meeting Biden's national security adviser, Jake Sullivan at the White House.  Now Secretary of State Antony Blinken and John Kerry, the special presidential envoy for climate, head to Paris on Monday for a meeting of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.  'Secretary Blinken will also meet with French counterparts to continue discussions on further strengthening the vital U.S.-France relationship on a range of issues including security in the Indo-Pacific region, the climate crisis, economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Transatlantic relationship, and working with our Allies and partners to address global challenges and opportunities,' said spokesman Ned Price announcing the trip.

    This obligation will apply “excluding essential travel”, said the Elysee. “Frontier workers and land transport in particular will be exempt.” Paris had already decided on January 14 to subject travelers from a country outside the European Union (EU) to this rule. Cross-border workers and “essential” workers were already exempt. The Elysee said that the approach chosen by the Head of State was also that of “many of his European counterparts”. In Stockholm, the European agency responsible for epidemics, for its part, invited Europeans to “prepare for a rapid escalation in the stringency of measures (to counter the virus) in the coming weeks in order to preserve healthcare capacities, thus than to accelerate vaccination campaigns “. In France, where the death toll is now close to 72,000 deaths, the number of recorded contaminations again exceeded the figure of 20,000 on Thursday, and the specter of a third confinement seems to be looming. Emmanuel Macron’s decision comes at the end of a videoconference summit of the 27 member states during which Ursula von der Leyen, the president of the European Commission,...
    Number Thirty Eight, a massive food, drink and live-music venue in RiNo, is about as Colorado-centric as it gets. The name refers to how this great state was the thirty-eighth to join the union; there are 24 local brews on tap, and the space serves local spirits as well. Founders Spencer Fronk and Andrew Palmquist say it boasts 18,000 square feet of outdoor space. That includes a huge patio, stage and volleyball courts, all of which take a cue from Colorado’s après ski culture. And that means Number Thirty Eight will be hosting outdoor concerts even after the weather turns cold. The venue, which opens Friday, October 9 with music from indie-pop singer-songwriter Zach Heckendorf, is set to host shows three nights a week, with each band playing two sets a night, at 5 and 8 p.m. The shows will include rising stars playing across genres. Indie-pop act South of France plays two nights this weekend, while indie-psych band Augustus, rapper extraordinaire Old Man Saxon, the road-trip rockers in Whitacre, and gifted singer-songwriters Lucas Wolf and Covenhoven are...

    (CNN)President Donald Trump referred to fallen US service members at the Aisne-Marne cemetery in crude and derogatory terms during a November 2018 trip to France to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, a former senior administration official confirmed to CNN. Trump was supposed to go to an event at the cemetery during the trip, but rain and fog were blamed for him not being able to helicopter to the site. The White House then determined he could not motorcade to the location -- 50 miles outside of Paris -- because it would be too hard to try to secure the roads.The former official, who declined to be named, largely confirmed reporting from Jeffrey Goldberg in The Atlantic magazine, which cited sources who said Trump rejected the idea of a cemetery visit and proceeded to refer to the fallen soldiers as "losers" and "suckers."Trump has forcefully denied the report in The Atlantic.This story is breaking and will be updated.
    Fox News correspondent Jennifer Griffin said Friday she spoke with two top officials who confirmed “key details” of the stunning report in The Atlantic about alleged comments of President Donald Trump’s about dead soldiers. Griffin said Friday, “I’ve spoken with two U.S. senior officials who were on the trip to France who confirmed to me key details in the Atlantic article and the quotes attributed to the president.” One of those sources — a former Trump administration official — apparently told Griffin that Trump said of Vietnam, “It was a stupid war. Anyone that went was a sucker.” Griffin continued: “The president would say about American veterans, ‘What’s in it for them? They don’t make any money.’ The source said, ‘It was a character flaw of the President: he could not understand why someone would die for their country, not worth it.’ Regarding the French trip to mark the end of WWI, according to this former official, the president was not in a good mood. French President Macron had said something that made him mad, he questioned why he had...

    BEIRUT (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron plans to return to Beirut on Sept. 1 to follow up on the reconstruction efforts after the catastrophic blast which destroyed parts of Beirut last week, French Defense Minister Florence Parly said Friday. Parly, speaking after a tour of the French helicopter-carrier Tonnerre which arrived earlier in the day in the devastated port of Beirut, also called on the Lebanese to form a government capable of taking "courageous decisions." She described the ship as a "floating city" which can provide all kind of medical and technical support, including a hospital, search and rescue equipment, construction materials and also transporting a shipment of flour. The government of Prime Minister Hassan Diab, which has the backing of the Iran-aligned Hezbollah, resigned in the wake of the explosion.
