President Donald Trump has come under attack after he cancelled a visit to a World War I memorial cemetery in France on Saturday because of the rain. Trump, who flew to Paris to commemorate 100 years since the end of World War I, was due to visit the Aisne-Marne American cemetery in Belleau located on the site of a World War I battle. During that battle, over 1,800 Americans troops were killed.
