    He has been the President of the United States for 174 days now, and yet outrageous Donald Trump quotes are still coming thick and fast – and he’s still managing to shock the world with his words.

    Currently, his son, Donald Trump Jr, is stealing the controversial limelight following allegations that the first family colluded with Russia to tilt the result of the U.S elections.

    However, Donald Snr is also causing shock waves from across the pond following his ‘creepy’ comment about the French First Lady, Brigitte Macron.

    Donald and Melania visited the French President and his wife in Paris at the Hotel des Invalides this week, where they were taken on a tour of the historical site. In true Trump style, he went for a pretty grippy handshake with Brigitte Macron and held it there for an awkwardly long time.

    But it didn’t stop there. Once the tour was over, Trump turned to Brigitte and said: ‘You’re in such good shape.’

    Clearly he hadn’t made his point clear enough, because he proceeded to turn to the French President and let him know that he was impressed by his wife’s body.

    Gesturing to Brigitte, Trump told Macron: ‘She’s in such good physical shape. Beautiful.’

    Although we can’t see the Macrons’ reactions in the video, people voiced their outrage on Twitter branding the US President ‘creepy’ and remarking it left them ‘shuddering’.

    It isn’t the first time Donald Trump has come under fire for sexist remarks.

    Less than a month ago, he decided to interrupt a female news reporter to tell her she had a great smile, and if this is anything to go by it seems that, sadly, he hasn’t learned his lesson about appropriate behaviour just yet.
