Trump to make Paris visit in November to mark 100 years since end of WWI
The Local France ^ | 17 Aug 2018

US President Donald Trump announced on Friday that he will be visiting Paris on November 11th in honour of the centenary of the end of WWI.

Trump who had planned to organise a military parade in November in Washington announced Friday that he would travel to Paris for the commemoration of the end of the First World War.

The US president made the announcement on Twitter (see below) on Friday afternoon at the same as criticizing local politicians in Washington who he said were asking for too much money for the parade.

"Never let anyone take you hostage!" he wrote.

The local politicians who run Washington, D.C. (poorly) know a windfall when they see it. When asked to give us a price for holding a great celebratory military parade, they wanted a number so ridiculously high that I cancelled it. Never let someone hold you up! I will instead... 4:57 AM - Aug 17, 2018

....attend the big parade already scheduled at Andrews Air Force Base on a different date, & go to the Paris parade, celebrating the end of the War, on November 11th. Maybe we will do something next year in D.C. when the cost comes WAY DOWN. Now we can buy some more jet fighters!

The American president had been impressed by the French national day parade during his visit to France in July 2017.

I wonder if those chumps will try to talk Trump into getting back into the global warming thing?

I am more worried by announcing he will visit terrorist controlled territory like Paris this far out. It gives the jihadist a firm time and place POTUS will be and a lot of time to plan.

I think our so called NATO allies don’t like us much these days, like I give a rat’s 🐀 rear end. I don’t think they liked Reagan much, and dislike Trump even more, like I give a rat’s 🐀 read end. 🤣 Anyway, to make a long story short, even over here, we seem to have had a falling out, with the Brits, and other Europeans, like I give a rat’s 🐀 rear end. I think most of them are a bit socialist, so frankly, I don’t really care what they think. 👍

Yep. Remember the Arch Duke in Sarajevo.

How about hold something here and have the French pay for it, as their way of thanking us for saving them the first time?

Instead... We ought to disinter Woodrow Wilson and send France the remains with a note of apology.

The visit isn’t about France or NATO - it is about honouring those heroic young men who crossed half the world to fight for their country and never returned.

Trump has a greater love and appreciation of our military than any President since Washington. No matter how long ago, or the nature of the conflict, Trump understands that every bit of American blood spilt in war must always be honoured

Midterm elections on Tuesday the 6th, in Paris on Sunday the 11th.

Whatever else I say about Macron and Grandma, he’s turned out to be the one European leader Trump turns to and can count on. Putting pressure on Iran wouldn’t be happening without France.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
BS and a POX on DC and all the other LIB controlled cities who, all of a sudden want to say that having a ‘Parade’ to celebrate 100 year anniversary for end of the ‘War to end ALL Wars’.

R should use this in their campaigns....

DC ‘hosts’ and plans a parade etal in a nanosecond for a Hockey Team, Pussy Brigade, Pro Abortion etc etc etc and can’t cooperate on this event?

POLITICS.....

I still believe PDT was ‘set up’ on this one as I think he saw a massive turnout honoring troops in other countries and thought it a GREAT idea to pay tribute here.
I can just ‘see’ all the ‘plants’ throwing in their .02 worth and PDT nodding “Yeah, tanks, that would be a good idea and those big guns” etc etc etc

That gave the ‘ANTI whatever Trump wants, Trump aint gonna get crowd’ ammo to complain about Tanks etal tearing up city streets.

PDT may be ‘good and pure’ but he hasn’t figured out that the longer he lets a ‘cancer’ ride, the harder it is to stop it ie yanking UNNEEDED Security Clearances, Ridding his Admin of ALL Clinton & BO holdovers, either getting Sessions ON or OFF the pot (However I think the bi weekly ‘COME on Sessions’ tweets are covers BUT)...

Kind of like the story that on Oct 1 the kid starts ragging Dad about getting a pony for Christmas.
Finally the big day arrived and Dad pretty well worn down, decides to drop a bunch of Horse Apples around.

Kid runs down Christmas morning, starts to cheer and run around..Dad was mystified and said “Son, it is just a joke, We can’t afford a pony”
“NO Dad, Santa came through, with all this Horse$hiite laying around, got to be a pony here someplace”.

Of course I know exactly what it’s about. I spent 20 years in the USAF, 8 of those years under Reagan. He also loved the troops.
My point, is not that Trump will make anything other than that out of it. I doubt any other leader will make anything else out of it either. My guess is some left wing American or European so called journalist, will bring up countless other useless issues.
It’s rather obvious, that I didn’t make it very clear.
