President Trump, our sissy president, flew across the Atlantic Ocean to France to participate in ceremonies honoring the military personnel who fought and died in World War I, but he couldn’t attend the ceremonies at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery due to light rain.

The cemetery has 2,288 graves, including many Americans who fought in the Aisne-Marne Offensive and the Battle of Belleau Wood. My wife’s father, Alton Christmas Jones, who was gassed in France, and her uncle, William Howard Jones, were Marines who fought at Belleau Wood. Our sissy president sent Chief of Staff John Kelly and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford to attend the ceremonies. Kelly and Dunford are true Americans.

Dignitaries who visited various World War I sites included Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron, but Trump stayed dry.

Our military fights and dies in all types of weather, including rain, snow, the heat and the cold. The sissy president says he cares about our military, but in the two years since his election he has not visited our military in an active war zone. He has disrespected our military and is a disgrace to our country.
