World War I began in 1914, after the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, and lasted until 1918. During the conflict, Germany, Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria and the Ottoman Empire (the Central Powers) fought against Great Britain, France, Russia, Italy, Romania, Japan and the United States (the Allied Powers). Thanks to new military technologies and the horrors of trench warfare, World War I saw unprecedented levels of carnage and destruction. By the time the war was over and the Allied Powers claimed victory, more than 16 million people—soldiers and civilians alike—were dead.
Donald Trump the American President yesterday left for France to commemorate the end of world war one along with other world leaders, including the French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and others.
However, Donald Trump on Saturday called off a trip to a World War I US military cemetery in France because of supposed bad weather, the White House said. After talks with French counterpart Emmanuel Macron, Trump canceled his visit to Belleau Wood battlefield and cemetery 80 kilometers (50 miles) northeast of Paris because of “scheduling and logistical difficulties caused by the weather,” his administration said.
So we have interpreted that to mean that Trump did not want his hair to get wet, he would rather spend his time with Vladimir Putin, or both.
So we took it unto ourselves to show you what a real president does when he has important duties to perform and there is a little rain.
In the meantime, Nicholas Soames, a British politician, and grandson of Winston Churchill ripped Donald Trump on Saturday for canceling a cemetery visit in France due to bad weather.
“They died with their face to the foe and that pathetic inadequate @realDonaldTrump couldn’t even defy the weather to pay his respects to The Fallen,” Soames tweeted.
Trump and many members of his administration are in France this weekend to commemorate Armistice Day. Nov. 11 marks 100 years since the end of World War I.
Former top Obama aide Ben Rhodes also called out Trump for not visiting the cemetery, saying that under the previous White House there was “always a rain option. Always.”
Soames, who is a member of Parliament for Mid Sussex, included a hashtag saying Trump is “not fit to represent his great country.”
