Several garish gold frames having in the West Wing that used be adorned with pictures of Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron have been replaced with photos from the president’s summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, Wall Street Journal reporter Michael Bender reports.

In April, Trump and Macron’s friendship appeared to reach new heights during a state dinner, when the French president praised their “great relationship” and Trump offered to wipe dandruff off Macron’s shoulder.

But at the G7 meeting in June, their union reportedly “soured.” Trump, who was more than an hour late for his scheduled meeting with Macron, left the G7 for Singapore, where he met with Jong-un and offered praise for the North Korean leader.

Jong-un, Trump said, has “a great personality,” and is “a funny guy, he's very smart.”

"When you take over a country—a  tough country, tough people—and you take it over from your father, I don't care who you are, what you are, how much of an advantage you have. If you can do that at 27 years old, I mean, that's 1 in 10,000 that could do that,” Trump said.
