PARIS President Donald Trumps decision to cancel his visit to an American military cemetery outside of Paris threatened to overshadow his trip here, as government officials, historians and fellow Republicans hammered him for more than 24 hours for that move.
President@realDonaldTrump a no-show because of raindrops? Those veterans the president didnt bother to honor fought in the rain, in the mud, in the snow & many died in trenches for the cause of freedom. Rain didnt stop them & it shouldnt have stopped an American president, wrote former Secretary of State John Kerry, a veteran of the Vietnam War.
The internet lit up Saturday and Sunday with images of other world leaders braving gray skies to lay wreaths, unveil plaques and pay their respects at memorials and cemeteries outside of Paris during a weekend to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.
French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel lay a floral wreath on Saturday afternoon at Compiègne, the site where the agreement that stopped World War I was signed. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited the World War I battlefield, Vimy Ridge, where he greeted Canadian veterans.
The White House opted to drop the trip for the president due to rainy weather because the presidents Marine One helicopter cannot fly in rain or fog.
Media is completely unhinged. How can we combat this?
It is calming when you realize every choice he makes on everything will result in apoplexy by the media in all countries. It is freeing to realize you joining in the hysteria wont help, so do something more fun.
The Socialist Leftist media knows no shame when it comes to piling up the dead with failed policies and then urinating on them.
After decades of Presidents signing agreements that sent our high paying manufacturing jobs out of the country we finally have a President who is trying to bring them back, and look at how this country treats him.
For starters, my suggestion would be we all cut the cord and go back to antenna TV. It would greatly reduce our entertainment choices, but I'm so sick of this that I'm willing to take the loss.
You folks don’t know squat.
I want the best security decisions to be made for our President’s safety. Period.
Heh. Howz about Pullutico polling the U.S. military to see whether they respect President Trump or Dorkbama the Muslim eunuch quota baby more?
Never happen, of course, because they KNOW the answer.
America showed up twice when it counted.
And from john -——— kerry no less.Thats rich I tell ya.Do y’all remember he served in vietnam?
But that won't stop the left from making spurious accusations.
President Trump, of all people, would have wanted to be there to honor American heroes, if he could have been.
More BS from fake news source. Undoubtedly Trump had a valid reason to skip the trip and just blamed it on the weather. We will probably never know the real reason. Who cares? Just the lace trimmed pink panty crowd, no doubt. Pissonthem.
Heres what I think is really going on. All the lefty Euros are whining about nationalism and how they have overcome it with their global government. WWI is for them defined as a nasty nationalism war...therefore they were going to use the visit and issue to bash Trump. So...Trump simply says, no thank you. No show.
That is a very interesting thought. There could be something more about this cancellation than just the weather.
We’ve done well without TV for several years. In fact, it is a pleasure to not know who they are or what they said. Would the apostles watch TV if it were in their time sphere?
This isnt really kosher. Its a centennial on top of it all. Just what WWI needs. To be forgotten again.
I dont buy the M1 cant fly in rain; if not, that is piss poor.
Didn’t oblamo skip the France trip altogether? I don’t recall the leftist propaganda activists (aka MSM) spewing hate about that.
We cant, the narrative has been issued by the Politico-boro. Donald Trump is a wuss, a reprobate, a swine, a hooligan, on and on and on.
Did we expect anything else?
