Donald Trump has been filmed remarking to the French President that his wife is in “such good physical shape”.
Mr Trump made the remark twice, adding “beautiful” as he gestured at Brigette Macron.
The French First Lady responded by putting her arm round Melania Trump, while Emmanuel Macron looked on.
It was captured in a video posted on the French government’s Facebook page and came as the four toured museums during a state visit in Paris.
Mr Trump has a history of making controversial comments about women.
In 2016, video surfaced of him boasting he could “grab women by the p****”.
He went on to brag: “When you’re a star they let you do it.” He added: “You can do anything.”
He has also described his daughter Ivanka as “voluptuous” and agreed with a TV presenter who called her “a piece of a**”.
Most recently, he raised eyebrows for beckoning an Irish journalist over who was covering Taoiseach Leo Varadkar’s visit to the White House.
“We have all of this beautiful Irish press,” Mr Trump said.
“She has a nice smile on her face so I bet she treats you well.”
