Notations On Our World (Special W-End Edition): Witness to History As President Macron of France addressed Congress....

Emmanuel Macron came to the United States.  Earlier this week, we had the pleasure to feature his speech before Congress live as he also went against President Trump on Climate Change and the Iran Deal.    However, what was disturbing was how Iran arrested an Dual National Academic during a visit to Iran as Macro fought for the deal.

As we look forward to our series on Iran, we wanted to share highlights of President Macron's Visit to Capitol Hill courtesy of the Office of Speaker Ryan:

President Macron's Address to Congress

This morning, a time-honored tradition took place as President Emmanuel Macron became the eighth President of France to address a joint meeting of Congress. The United States' partnership with France dates all the way back to our nation's founding, and Speaker Ryan welcomed President and Madam Macron to the Capitol in the spirit of our longstanding friendship.
