French President Macron Fires Back At Trump

Donald Trump and French president Emmanuel Macron

"By saying our interests come first and others don't matter we are erasing what makes a nation precious, what makes it live, what makes it great and most importantly of all, its moral values", he said, watched by President Trump, who prides himself on being called a nationalist.

He first lady Melania Trump skipped an arrival ceremony at the residence of the French president earlier in the day and did not walk down the Champs-Elysees with other world leaders, traveling to the Arc de Triomphe in the US president's bullet-proof limousine, instead.

"It is our duty to preserve the civilization they defended and to protect the peace they so nobly gave their lives to secure one century ago", he said.

The Russian Empire, which had a population of around 150 million people, suffered 1.7 million deaths during the war.

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.

He praised the world leaders that formed the first League of Nations, after World War I.

Mr Macron said: 'Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism.

Although the White House chalked up the differences in schedules to "security concerns", as CNN reported, the effect seemed to set Trump apart from his colleagues, but he's not alone in being alienated by Macron, who also took jab at the UK's Prime Minister, Theresa May, and Germany's Chancellor, Angela Merkel.

He visited an American cemetery outside Paris at precisely the moment that Macron, Merkel and other dignitaries were opening a peace forum where the French leader again sounded the alarm about crumbling worldwide harmony as he ruminated about the legacy of the morning's commemorations.

On Saturday, Trump cited the bad weather for his decision to cancel a visit to an American cemetery in northern France - a decision for which drew criticism. The feminist activist group Femen later claimed responsibility.

French President Emmanuel Macron who opened the Peace Forum said that the world's stability is threatened by nationalism, racism, antisemitism and extremism, as well as by economic, environmental and migrants-related challenges.

He said: 'The Trumps could easily have got to Beaulleau by road too - with a limousine escort it would take less than an hour'.

U.S. Army Capt. Charles Normington wrote that "each soldier had his arms full of French girls, some crying, others laughing; each girl had to kiss every soldier before she would let him pass". You know what I am? "We have a lot of problems".

The president sent a delegation that included chief of staff John Kelly instead.

Trump and Putin are expected to have formal talks later this month when both attend a G-20 summit in Buenos Aires.

Air Force One departed Paris for Washington shortly after the peace forum opened.

He laid a wreath at the Cenotaph war memorial in central London alongside British Prime Minister Theresa May, who chose not to join other world leaders marking the centenary of the Armistice in Paris. Its role as host of the main global commemoration highlighted the point that the world mustn't stumble into war again, as it did so quickly and catastrophically with World War II.
