With New Excuse, Trump Blames Secret Service For Missing Military Cemetery

Initially, the White House blamed bad weather for Trump's absence at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery and Memorial in northern France, about 60 miles from Paris, on Saturday.

A woman charged President Donald Trump's motorcade as it carried him along Paris' Avenue des Champs-Élysées for a World War I Armistice ceremony.

The Battle of Belleau Wood was a critical conflict in the war and a pivotal encounter in Marine Corps history.

However the President did courageous Parisian showers earlier today to attend another solemn ceremony honoring veterans of what was called the Great War.

Trump later attended the remembrance services with other world leaders to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War.

Social media users trolled Trump Saturday by posting pictures of former President Barack Obama giving several speeches in the rain.

His fractious relationship with Europe has driven a wedge between the United States and some of its oldest allies on issues including trade, defence spending and his seeming deference to their looming neighbour to the east, Russia's Vladimir Putin.

The tweets came on the heels of a trip on which Trump seemed isolated from other leaders.

"We want to help Europe but it has to be fair".

Trump's feud with Emmanuel Macron boiled on Sunday as the French leader forcefully denounced nations "looking after their own interests" and decried nationalist policies like the ones Donald Trump has embraced. "He's only got one umbrella, and he couldn't figure out how to bring it on the plane", Colbert said as the now-infamous clip of President Trump leaving an open umbrella outside of Air Force One played.

"It's incredible that a president would travel to France for this significant anniversary - and then remain in his hotel room watching TV rather than pay in person his respects to the Americans who gave their lives in France for the victory gained 100 years ago tomorrow", The Atlantic's David Frum said, according to the Washington Post.
