Warning: Donald Trump cancels grave visits



He had to go to the American cemetery to celebrate the end of the First World War. This was canceled "for logistical reasons".

Donald Trump will not go to the Bois Belleau American Cemetery because of bad weather. The American president visited the tomb located in Aisne this Saturday, after meeting in the morning Emmanuel Macron in Elysee in the context of tension between two heads of state. But according to information from France 3 Hauts-de-France, helicopters that will bring Donald Trump cannot land due to bad weather.

An obstacle again

The timetable of the President of the United States, present in Paris over the weekend to participate in the centenary commemoration of the end of the First World War, has been greatly reduced after this cancellation. Billionaire does not have anything planned this Saturday with dinner at the Musée d'Orsay in the company, among others, his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

This was a little more annoying during the visit which was marked by clashes with the French president even before Donald Trump's arrival on French soil. On Twitter, billionaires strongly criticized Friday's idea of ​​European troops. Emmanuel Macron "never said that it was necessary to create European forces against the United States," the French presidency said, raising confusion, while the two men met Saturday morning at the Elysee Palace.

He remains absent from the Peace Forum

But this will not be enough to hide the divisions that exist between President Macron and his American partners. Far from the initial demonstration of friendship, the two heads of state had deep disputes about the environment, Iran's nuclear power, trade relations, and generally, world affairs governance.

The American president will be absent from the big Forum on Peace, the platform for multilateralism, which was held Sunday afternoon at the initiative of Emmanuel Macron in Paris. After the ceremony was held under the Arc de Triomphe Sunday morning, the highlight of the warning, in the presence of more than 70 heads of state government, Donald Trump preferred to go to the Suresnes American cemetery, before taking the plane back to Washington.
