After his meeting with Macron, President Trump and the First Lady were scheduled to visit the battlefield of Belleau Wood, 55 miles northeast of Paris; however the White House canceled President Trump’s trip and Chief of Staff General John Kelly and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joe Dunford went to the cemetery instead.
If you believe media reports, the White said that weather was bad and precluded the trip by Marine One, but the European press poo-poos this reason. I wonder?
President Trump will join other world leaders for dinner at the Musee d’Orsay art museum on Saturday night. Our President is then set to visit another American cemetery that holds war dead, at Suresnes, in the Paris suburbs, on Sunday morning. World leaders will meet at 11 am local time on Sunday at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the Arc de Triomphe, in Paris, to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.
