While meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron at the United Nations General Assembly in New York City on Monday, he praised Macron for his Bastille Day parade, which he saw during a summer visit. And he said that his goal would be to "try to top" what France did.
"We must give the opportunity to young boys and girl to obtain an education to choose their own future, not the future that is imposed on them by need but the future that they should choose for themselves", he said.
French President Emmanuel Macron hosted Trump during the country's Bastille Day celebrations.
Trump, in his speech, slashed Iran, calling the Iran nuclear deal an "embarrassment to the United States". Trump told reporters: "I have decided".
As for the intractable conflict in Syria, Macron proposed forming a "contact group" to help end the six-year war.
On Iran, he said the worldwide agreement reached in July 2015 between Tehran and the six countries of Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States was a "solid, robust agreement that verifies that Iran will not build a nuclear weapon".

But even before his inauguration, Trump had talked about showing off the military.
"We'll see if we can do it this year", he said.
"We have a disagreement on climate. I mean, we're going to be showing our military", he added.
"It would be a mistake to annul the nuclear agreement without anything else", he said, and declined to say whether USA president Donald Trump had told him of his decision on whether to keep the United States as a party to the accord.
Trump was very open to considering a number of different options as long as they were fair to America's interests, which include promoting the economy and protecting the environment, the official said. He said he was impressed by the military parade in central Paris in July, when he was visiting the French capital. President Trump said he wanted to leave the deal, but on a legal basis he still needs to put that into action so it's not a legal reality yet. I will make it live.
