French Pres. Macron Says He Doesn't 'Wonder' Whether Trump Will Finish Term
"I work with him because both of us are very much at the service of our countries on both sides," Macron said, adding he will not "judge" Trump over the investigations occurring in the United States.
The sit-down took place at Elysee Palace in Paris and it came ahead of Macron's April 24 state visit to Washington, D.C., his first during the Trump administration. He is also scheduled to address Congress.
Wallace questioned the French leader, who was elected a year ago, on the situation in Syria, France’s relationship with the U.S. and his first year in office.

"I think the U.S. today has a very strong role to play for peace in different regions of the world, and especially [the] Middle East," Macron said.
"I think it's one of the last resorts for this peace and for militarism," he added.
Macron also touted his relationship with Trump as "very special," and that they're both political "mavericks."
He said he and Trump are very aligned on a number of issues, especially counter-terrorism.
Macron also credited the president's visit to France last year for Bastille Day as a factor in their strong relationship.
