• Saturday: Trump cancels his visit to an american cemetery because of the rain
After his lunch with Emmanuel Macron at the Elysee the u.s. president was scheduled to visit the american cemetery of Bois-Belleau, in the Aisne, situated about a hundred kilometres north-east of Paris. In the early afternoon, the White House announced that it was cancelling this trip due to… bad weather. Officially, the helicopter of the president could not take off due to weather conditions.
The chief of staff of the White House, John Kelly, a retired general of the Marine Corps, his wife, and the secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, had replaced Donald Trump. Until dinner with the couple Macron at the Musée d’orsay, the american president was nothing in the program.
The decision of Donald Trump has been strongly criticised, some saw it as a form of carelessness or a lack of respect vis-à-vis the soldiers who died in combat and those who went to see the american president.
Ben Rhodes, a former close advisor to Barack Obama on foreign affairs, was so surprised on Twitter that no alternative option has been provided in advance.
The entourage of the former american president, moreover, has not failed to relay a video of 2017 where we see the canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau letting go of his umbrella to feel the rain, the drops and the discomfort of ending up wet,” as were the soldiers.
the Irony of fate: a “cemetery of forgotten” was inaugurated Saturday at… Cadillac (who is also the brand of the car of Trump) in New Aquitaine.
