Ending tense weekend in France, Trump honors friendship ‘sealed in battle’

President Trump’s weekend in France turned events marking the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I into a diplomatic obstacle course.

He weathered an imperious lecture from French Present Emmanuel Macron, suffered widespread criticism for canceling a visit to a war cemetery and dodged anti-Trump demonstrations, including topless female protesters with slogans written across their chests.

Mr. Trump lumbered through a series of commemorations rife with complex symbolism and diplomatic pitfalls and then went out on a high note Sunday by refusing to let Mr. Macron’s political barbs disturb a solemn Veterans Day tribute.

“We honor the American and French service members who shed their blood together in a horrible, horrible war, but a war known as the Great War,” Mr. Trump said in a speech at Suresnes American Cemetery, where more than 1,500 fallen American service members from World War I are buried.

    The French have their “laissez faire”attitudes, and Trump is direct. “Direct” is fine with me, but I’m not French. The present French attitude via President Macron is registering negative in France now. The French “honeymoon” is over.
    Marie LePen (Conservative) is growing in strength and will be challenging Macron before the next French national election.
