Trump ruled out cemetery motorcade as disruptive

The American flag flies at the Aisne Marne American Cemetery dedicated to the U.S. soldiers killed in the Belleau Wood battle during World War One at Belleau France

"They died with their face to the foe and that pathetic inadequate @realDonaldTrump couldn't even defy the weather to pay his respects to The Fallen", tweeted Nicholas Soames, a British Conservative member of parliament and grandson of Winston Churchill.

The White House said Trump's trip to the memorial was "canceled due to scheduling and logistical difficulties caused by the weather", which it said caused visibility issues that would preclude Trump taking his helicopter to the site. An American delegation will attend on...

The president was expected to observe a moment of silence at the cemetery in addition to laying a wreath in honor of veterans killed in World War I. More than 2,200 soldiers were laid to rest at the cemetery during the war, several of whom were USA military members, while the names of 1,060 American soldiers' names are engraved on a wall at the graveyard.

Trump drew widespread criticism over the weekend for not attending a scheduled wreath-laying event at the Ainse-Marne American Cemetery and Memorial in Belleau, France.

The French army poked fun at the President of the United States after he missed a memorial service marking the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.

He will also join around 70 other world leaders for a solemn ceremony at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier under the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.
