PARIS – The latest on President Donald Trump’s trip to Paris.
President Donald Trump celebrated US and Allied soldiers killed during World War I during what he called “a terrible terrible war” that marked America’s emergence as world power.
Trump made his views on Sunday at Suresnes American Cemetery and Memorial in the suburbs of Paris, where more than 1,500 Americans who died in the war were buried. He said that the world leaders “gathered together on this holy rest to pay tribute to the brave Americans” who gave their lives in that war.
Trump said: “It is our duty to preserve the civilization they defended and to protect the peace they so nobly gave their lives to secure a century ago.” He made comments after being alone against the white cross of the cemetery.
A prime Kremlin Foreign Affairs aide says that the French government requested that President Vladimir Putin and President Donald Trump come back from plans to meet during his visit to Paris.
If the US and Russian Presidents were to meet next to the ceremonies that celebrated the end of World War I had been the subject of speculation before Sunday’s events.
Yuri Ushakov, Putin’s Foreign Adviser, said on Russian state television that a preliminary agreement on a Trump-Putin meeting had been reached but was released after considering what he called French considerations. He said that this decision was taken in consultation with US officials.
President Donald Trump says the victory came to a “terrible cost” for allied forces that fought and died during the First World War.
Trump said that 26,000 Americans were killed only in the last war of the war.

Putin said that he and Trump decided not to “cancel the schedule” of World War events with a separate meeting. Putin spoke to the RT France network.
Putin also praised the idea of a European army, because he said that it could “strengthen the multipolar nature of the world”. Macron has driven the idea of a European army.
