Sydney - Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop on Sunday criticized comments by U.S. President Donald Trump on French first lady Brigitte Macron’s appearance.

“You’re in such good shape,” Trump was filmed on Thursday telling her during his first state visit to France.

“I wonder if she could say the same of him?” Bishop told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, when asked whether she would be flattered or offended if the comment were directed at her.

“I’d be taken aback, I think. It’s a rather interesting comment to make,” she said.

Bishop declined further comment on the Paris remark, but added an unprompted observation on Trump’s use of social media, saying she wouldn’t “run a commentary on his Twitter account”.

The criticism follows an acrimonious January telephone call between Trump and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, when the American hung up after 25 minutes rather than the scheduled hour, according to the Washington Post.

In June, the relationship between the two countries hit the spotlight again, after the release of a leaked tape of Turnbull mocking Trump at an off-the-record media event.

But the two leaders “get along great,” Trump had declared in May, following his first-face-to-face meeting with Turnbull.

Trump also bowed down to the Saudi king, it was Trump's very first trip, you can watch the video, and I don't remember you complaining.

Could you share with us his medical record to validate your claim?

why do you say this? It was your guy Trump who kept insisting that Obama was not born here and was not eligible to be president. I think you see what you want to see. the difference between every former president and Trump, is that every other president realized that criticism about, and disagreement with the President, go along with the territory and they were dignified enough to ignore it or laugh at themselves. it is because your childish trump cannot accept any criticism that he brings more publicity to every small slight he senses. GROW UP!
