Trump marks 100 years since end of World War I with tribute to fallen soldiers

‘Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism,’ says France’s Emmanuel Macron at World War I commemoration

Trump's cool relations with Macron and Merkel were on full display last weekend, with the Republican leader looking far more eager to engage with Russian President Vladimir Putin, who told media that France requested he not organize any meetings with Trump. "You're very smart people". In Helsinki in July, Trump's apparent acceptance of Putin's denials Russian Federation had intervened in the vote over the conclusions of US intelligence triggered a wave of criticism in Washington and a push for new sanctions in Congress.

As bells marking the Armistice hour rang across Paris and in many nations ravaged by the four years of carnage, Mr Macron and other leaders, including Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, were still on their way to the centennial site at the Arc de Triomphe. On the way to the ceremony, topless protesters from the Femen group ran into the street toward his motorcade before being detained by police.

While Putin's handshakes with Macron and Merkel were brief, he and Trump engaged in mutual arm and back patting.

Putin said he hopes to meet Trump one-on-one on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Argentina in late November instead, RT and Interfax reported.

The Kremlin said earlier that the prospect of a full meeting between the United States and Russian presidents had prompted huge global media interest, leading to concern from the French organisers that this could overshadow the commemorations.

Trump has pulled out of a number of global treaties, from the Paris climate agreement to the Iran nuclear deal and recently announced plans to withdraw from a decades-old nuclear disarmament treaty with Russian Federation.

"I want to speak of my concerns that are mixed in with today's commemoration, the concern that national blinders are spreading again, that actions are taken as if to simply ignore our mutual dependencies, relationships and binding ties, " Merkel said. But nationalism has also been associated with movements that led to Word War I and Word War II, including Adolf Hitler and Nazism's German nationalism.

Earlier he visited a cemetery in Suresnes in western Paris, saying he had gone there "to pay tribute to fearless Americans" who died in the war. "We have a lot of problems". "They gave everything for family, country, God and freedom", he said.

The Chairman of the party Alexander Gauland harshly criticized the arrival of the Chancellor of France, as the anniversary of the First world war in Paris was intended only for "winners", and Germany was there to remember just dashing in short, the politician believes.

Trump arrived fresh off midterm elections in which his party lost control of the House of Representatives even as it kept control of the Senate. Vice President Mike Pence will attend the meetings in Trump's place.

On a weekend meant to commemorate world war veterans, U.S. President Donald Trump's moniker as a self-declared nationalist garnered worldwide attention on the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.
