Press conference began at 6:43 pm. Macron spoke first, followed by POTUS.
Simultaneous translation wasn't working for much of the presser; POTUS fielded a question about his son Don Jr. and the anticipated damaging information about Hillary Clinton from a "Russian government lawyer." He defended his son and said most people would take that meeting.
He fielded a question about his friend "Jim," whose anecdotal thoughts the AP described his week, and who the president as candidate used to say wouldn't go to Paris because of immigration and terror threats.
Macron said the final question should go to an American journalist. POTUS did not call on a US journalist.
At 7:23, POTUS motorcade was rolling back to the US ambassador's residence.
Arrived at residence at 7:31 pm. Holding here till dinner at the Jules Vernes
