The White House announced this morning that President Trump has accepted yesterday's invitation from French President Emmanuel Macron to visit Paris for Bastille Day celebrations on July 14.

Beyond France's national day, which remembers the 1789 storming of the Bastille during the French Revolution, this July 14 also marks the 100th anniversary of the United States' entrance into World War I — making it a big day for both countries.
