>> Standing next to the the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Paris on Sunday, French President Emmanuel Macron led tributes to the millions of soldiers killed during World War I. This, the centerpiece of global commemorations to mark the anniversary of the war's end 100 years ago. Attended by dozens of world leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and US President Donald Trump, who was greeted with a thumbs up by the last to arrive, Vladimir Putin.
In a glass canopy at the feet of the Arc de Triomphe, Trump and Putin listened at Macron delivered a stern warning about the dangers of nationalism, calling it the exact opposite and a betrayal of patriotism. Trump, who recently declared himself a nationalist, sat stony-faced in the first row.
This comes after the US President was ridiculed online for skipping an event honoring US soldiers and Marines killed during World War I because of rain. Among the critics, Winston Churchill's grandson who tweeted that quote. They died with their face to the foe and that pathetic inadequate Donald Trump couldn't even defy the weather to pay his respects to The Fallen.
The White House said the weather made it impossible to arrange transport. Though Macron and Merkel held a ceremony marking the 100th anniversary of the signing of the armistice. On Sunday, Trump remedy the situation by showing up to a similar event in the rainfall. After the ceremony in Paris on Sunday, world leaders retired to the Elysee Palace for lunch, followed by the inaugural Paris Peace Forum, which Macron hopes will prevent the history being remembered on Sunday from repeating itself.
