Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head

Trump’s rain decision casts dark clouds over his Paris trip: ‘Those veterans the president didn’t bother to honor fought in the rain, in the mud, in the snow,’ John Kerry writes:

PARIS — President Donald Trump’s decision to cancel his visit to an American military cemetery outside of Paris threatened to overshadow his trip here, as government officials, historians, and fellow Republicans hammered him for more than 24 hours for that move.

“President@realDonaldTrump a no-show because of raindrops? Those veterans the president didn’t bother to honor fought in the rain, in the mud, in the snow — & many died in trenches for the cause of freedom. Rain didn’t stop them & it shouldn’t have stopped an American president,” wrote former Secretary of State John Kerry, a veteran of the Vietnam War. …

Later on Sunday afternoon, Trump is slated to deliver remarks at the Suresnes American Cemetery and Memorial just outside of Paris, where the remains of 1,541 American World War I veterans are buried. Suresnes is one of eight American cemeteries throughout Europe. The weather, similar to Saturday, is rainy and overcast.
