Trump Honors Fallen WWI Heros in Veterans Day Speech

  • Trump walks alone as Macron rips into nationalism

"Today, we honour those who fought with such grit and valour on the beaches of France", Trudeau said on August 22, 2017, folding his umbrella to leave himself exposed to the elements.

Mr. Trump has repeatedly branded himself a "nationalist", despite criticism from some that the term has negative connotations.

"I want to speak of my concerns that are mixed in with today's commemoration, the concern that national blinders are spreading again, that actions are taken as if to simply ignore our mutual dependencies, relationships and binding ties, " Merkel said.

The message was both a call to learn the lessons of 1918, when an armistice was signed that led to another world war with two decades, and a rebuke to present-day leaders who shun the worldwide order in favour of protectionist, nativist policies.

The Russian president is hoping his personal ties with Trump, who regularly touts their good relationship, will at some point yield a softening of the US approach to his country.

On Saturday evening, the Trumps were among more than 120 guests, including dozens of heads of state and government, who attended a special dinner hosted by Macron and his wife Brigitte at the Orsay art museum in Paris. There has not yet been a reply from the White House to Macron's statements.

Host and French President Emmanuel Macron was there and German Chancellor Angela Merkel took part in some of the exchanges, the presidency said.

Mr Putin meanwhile, said he and Mr Trump - at odds over Washington's sanctions and the abandonment of a Cold War-era nuclear treaty - had a brief but positive conversation during the centenary commemoration events.

Trump, who defends the idea of "America first" and said that he is proud to be a nationalist, ignored the event. And Trump was not present as the other leaders arrived, walking side-by-side in a sombre, rain-soaked line holding black umbrellas as bells finished tolling. But Mr. Trump later said he would instead sit down with him formally later this month at a world leaders' summit in Buenos Aires.

Since then, the USA has sent National Security Adviser John Bolton for two rounds of talks with Russian officials, but the only deal announced publicly was a vague agreement for the two leaders to meet again next year, possibly in Washington. And I say, really, we're not supposed to use that word.

Sitting several seats away was Russian President Vladimir Putin, who arrived at the ceremony separately as well. Putin is expected to attend, Trump is not. "We have a lot of problems".

A handful of senior administration officials, including White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, went in the president's place, while Trump remained behind at the ambassador's residence with no alternate schedule for hours.

But Trump did not broach the divide as he paid tribute Sunday to USA and allied soldiers killed in World War I during "a disgusting, frightful war" that marked America's emergence as a world power.

Speaking at Suresnes American Cemetery, Trump called out to six USA veterans from World War II who were in the crowd, and a 13-year-old American boy who had saved up to attend the event.

On a weekend meant to commemorate world war veterans, U.S. President Donald Trump's moniker as a self-declared nationalist garnered global attention on the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.
