I'm in Paris to get ready to celebrate the end of the First World War. Is there anything better to celebrate than the end of a war, especially that, which was one of the bloodiest and worst ever?

The American president has not wasted time e he attacked his host, Emmanuel Macron, on Friday at the arrival in Paris. Trump wrote on Twitter that the president of France "has just suggested that Europe form its own army to protect itself from the United States, China and Russia, very offensive, but perhaps Europe should pay its just part of NATO, which the US subsidizes in is mostly "
This was a clear indication that the president of the "United States before" is ready to continue with his agenda as world leaders gather to remember the coalition that ended the First World War. Trump's visit comes a few days after the mid-term elections, considered a referendum to his mandate, in which the voters left the Senate in the hands of his party, but handed over the House of Representatives to the democratic opposition.
Before Sunday's commemorative events, Trump met Macron on Saturday to address various issues, including European security, Syria and Iran. The president and first lady, Melania Trump, will visit the American cemetery in Belleau, France, to pay tribute to the soldiers who died on French soil during the war.
