    French President Emmanuel Macron’s thinly-veiled shots at President Trump over the weekend won at least one hearty American “oui” — from Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Mr. Kasich, a frequent critic of Mr. Trump, took to Twitter to second Mr. Macron’s attack on “nationalism” at a speech Sunday marking the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. “@EmmanuelMacron is right,” Mr. Kasich tweeted, going on to quote what the French leader said in front of Mr. Trump, who has taken much criticism as racist for calling himself a “nationalist.”

    The White House has defended US President Donald Trump's decision to miss a memorial event on Saturday after he faced a backlash. Mr Trump, who was in France to mark the centenary of World War One's end, cancelled a visit to a US military cemetery because it was raining. Bad weather and "near-zero visibility" grounded the presidential helicopter, White House officials said. French, German and Canadian leaders attended memorial events on Saturday. However, Mr Trump was reluctant to bring extra disruption to Paris traffic for a last-minute motorcade, his officials said. "President Trump did not want to cause that kind...

    RCP ^ | Steve Cortes
    French President Emanuel Macron chose an odd occasion to implicitly lecture an American president over the weekend. After all, he was commemorating the 100th anniversary of the conclusion of the Great War, when the United States tipped the balance in that struggle in favor of the Allies and freed France. A generation later, young Americans would again return in droves to French soil, this time to smash the evil occupying force of Nazi ethno-fascism. As I explained recently, that despicable scourge sought racial purity and government dominance over all aspects of societies. Thankfully, American nationalism animated our mighty republic to...

    The day that Allied Forces made history on the beaches of Normandy in World War II was already the anniversary of a critical World War I battle. What would befall the United States Marine Corps at Belleau Wood beginning June 6, 1918, would change the Corps forever. In the spring of 1918, German forces launched a massive attack on France. The German Spring Offensive was a focused attempt to take France and win the war. By June, the Germans had already made significant gains. The Marines’ orders were to counterattack the Germans who were stopped at Belleau Wood, about 50...

    French President Emmanuel Macron denounced nationalism during an Armistice Day centennial observance in Paris on Sunday. “Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism: Nationalism is treason,” Macron said, according to a Euronews translator. Macron spoke in front of world leaders including President Donald Trump, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. “If we think our interests may only come first and we don’t care for others, it is a treason of our values, a betrayal of all moral values,” he said. “We must remember this.” Macron said that the moral values of France helped them fight for the...

    President Trump on Sunday honored Veterans Day and the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I by paying tribute to America’s fallen heroes and the friendship with France that was “sealed in battle.” At Suresnes American Cemetery and Memorial in France, Mr. Trump recalled that French and American troops “shed their blood together” to bring a victorious end to World War I. Mr. Trump’s mournful speech contrasted sharply with French President Emanuel Macron’s remarks early in Paris where he took a swipe at Mr. Trump by condemning the dangers of nationalism. “Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism....

    PARIS — President Donald Trump’s decision to cancel his visit to an American military cemetery outside of Paris threatened to overshadow his trip here, as government officials, historians and fellow Republicans hammered him for more than 24 hours for that move. “President@realDonaldTrump a no-show because of raindrops? Those veterans the president didn’t bother to honor fought in the rain, in the mud, in the snow — & many died in trenches for the cause of freedom. Rain didn’t stop them & it shouldn’t have stopped an American president,” wrote former Secretary of State John Kerry, a veteran of the Vietnam...

    In France, things are not much better. Emmanuel Macron, the current president of the French Republic, has collapsed in popularity from 57% to just starting to break the 30% level. Macron has collapsed in popularity faster than Nicolas Sarkozy did, who was a one-term president. Macron said he wanted to turn France into the “Start-up nation” but really promised the same old traditional political agenda. Many are becoming concerned in France also about the massive immigration. Many French are calling it a Trojan Horse, for now, one-third of all births in France are from non-European. The problem with all the...

    US President Donald Trump was forced to cancel his attendance on Saturday at a commemoration in France for US soldiers and marines killed in World War I because rain made it impossible to arrange transport. “[The attendance of the president and first lady] has been canceled due to scheduling and logistical difficulties caused by the weather,” the White House said according to Reuters, adding that Chief of Staff John Kelly, who is a former general, went instead. While the president was scheduled to attend the ceremony at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in Belleau, rain and low clouds prevented his helicopter...

    The White House and President Trump took some heat on Saturday after it was announced that he would not make a previously scheduled visit to a cemetery in France for Americans killed in World War I due to inclement weather. Trump arrived in France on Friday to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, along with first lady Melania Trump. They'd planned to visit Ainse-Marne American Cemetery in Belleau, France. The president was expected to lay a wreath and observe a moment of silence. The first couple was supposed to travel to the site via helicopter,...
