Sitting in a Latin Quarter Paris brasserie, a random stranger handed the phone to diner who had been talking about President Donald Trump.

"Would you like to talk to the president?" the stranger asked of someone who had been talking about the U.S. president in Paris.

Unbeknown to any of the three parties, it turned out the man with the phone was CNBC host Joe Kernen, and the man who would spontaneously a take the call from the president was Dan Balz a writer for The Washington Post.

President Trump did not know the man was a reporter for the Post, and neither the TV host nor Post writer hand known each other. They just happened to be talking politics at an adjacent table in a Paris brasserie.

CNBC's Kernen reportedly told the president random people in Paris were talking about him. And President Trump reportedly said "Are they still there? Let me speak to them."

"Are you Hillary or are you Trump?" President Trump reportedly said to the man he thought was a random patron at a Paris brasserie.

Once Balz identified himself as a Post reporter to President Trump the conversation led to a brief set of questions and "no news was being made."

"That was that," Balz wrote. "Just another night in a foreign capital. Just another bizarre moment and a chance encounter with the president of the United States. I wonder whether there will be another."
