THE BIG IDEA: Get ready for Macron-mania. Donald Trump was the first president since Calvin Coolidge, a century ago, not to welcome a foreign leader for a state visit during his first year in office.

Trump and Macron will meet one-on-one tomorrow morning in the Oval Office. Vice President Pence will host a lunch for Macron at the State Department, and he will tour Arlington National Cemetery.
