After getting pummeled on social media Saturday for not turning up to an event honoring fallen American WWI soldiers due to rain, Trump showed up to a similar event Sunday despite the rainfall. Each of these marble crosses and stars of David marks the life of an American warrior. Great, great warriors they are, who gave everything for a family, country, God and freedom.
Trump's remarks coming a day after he received backlash for missing a separate event honoring fallen US soldiers. The White House cancelling a scheduled Saturday visit to the American cemetery in Belleau, 50 miles east of Paris due to rain, saying bad weather prevented Trump's helicopter from travelling to the site.
Trump's no-show firing up social media, with flack coming from veterans including former US Secretary of State John Kerry, who said, veterans in the rain, mud and snow, it didn't stop them and it shouldn't stop an American president. The White House instead, sending chief of staff John Kelly, a marine corp general, to pay tribute to the fallen soldiers.
