Trump Refuses to Honor Fallen U.S. Soldiers in France Because of ‘Light Rain’


Reuters: “President Donald Trump could not attend a commemoration in France for U.S. soldiers and marines killed during World War One on Saturday because rain made it impossible to arrange transport, the White House said.”

“The last minute cancellation prompted widespread criticism on social media and from some officials in Britain and the United States that Trump had ‘dishonored’ U.S. servicemen.”

“Despite the light rain, French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel held a moving ceremony in Compiegne, northeast of Paris, to mark the 100th anniversary of the signing of the World War One armistice.”
