‘Betrayal of Patriotism’: Macron Jab at Trump’s Nationalism Seen as Rebuke

No sooner had US President Donald Trump touched down in Paris than he fired off a tweet castigating his host over proposals to endow the EU with its own joint army

Unlike Trump, Macron said he doesn't call himself a nationalist. He made the comments after spending a moment standing alone amid the cemetery's white crosses.

Whether the US and Russian presidents would meet on the sidelines of the ceremonies commemorating the end of World War I had been a subject of speculation in the lead-up to Sunday's events.

The sanctions stem from Trump's efforts to exit or renegotiate an worldwide deal struck during President Barack Obama's administration offering economic relief in exchange for a freeze of Iran's nuclear weapons program. He said this decision was made in consultation with American officials.

President Donald Trump says victory came at a "terrible cost" to allied forces that fought and died in World War I.

Francois Heisbourg, a political analyst and former campaign adviser to Macron, posted a photograph on Twitter of someone bicycling in Paris and wrote the weather that kept Trump from the cemetery is: "Nothing a cyclist can't handle, let alone a presidential helo".

The Russian newspaper Kommersant reported that French President Emmanuel Macron personally asked that Trump and Putin not meet.

The UK government has invited 10,000 members of the public to march past the Cenotaph in a "People's Procession" to give thanks and pay their respects to all who served in World War I. It has also called for bells to be rung across the nation and around the world to replicate the spontaneous ringing of bells across Britain on November 11, 1918 as news of the war's end spread.

The protest, held in steady rain, drew a range of groups and causes from Trotskyists to Communists and some seeking to free a convicted Lebanese terrorist from jail.

"We agreed not to violate the host's work schedule, we will not organize any meetings here at their request", he said. According to RT, Putin added that the chat was "good". Macron has pushed the idea of a European army.

President Trump speaks during an American Commemoration Ceremony, Sunday Nov. 11, 2018, at Suresnes American Cemetery near Paris.

The message was both a call to learn the lessons of 1918, when an armistice was signed that led to another world war with two decades, and a rebuke to present-day leaders who shun the global order in favour of protectionist, nativist policies.

Femen's topless protesters have repeatedly breached security around world leaders and major events.

The leaders of France and Germany were taken for a married couple by an elderly woman as they attended a ceremony commemorating the end of World War I outside Paris.

Cameras at the event captured Trump and Putin briefly shaking hands after Putin arrived. Putin, who was last to arrive at the ceremony, gave Trump a brief thumb's up as he greeted them.

The president did not show an immediate reply, sitting quietly, often with his head down during Macron's speech.

Trump was accompanied by first lady Melania Trump at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the base of the Arc de Triomphe.

One woman easily breached tight security along the Champs-Elysees avenue, walking on the midst of the motorcade and shouting "fake peacemaker" as the cars passed.
