Trump commemorates "great, great" WWI victory in France speech

President Trump honored the American war dead of World War I during a speech at the Suresnes American Cemetery and Memorial in France, praising those "who gave everything for family, country, God and freedom" before telling a story about an American soldier who died on the last day of fighting 100 years ago.

The big picture: Trump's speech comes one day after he was criticized for skipping a visit to an American cemetery and memorial outside of Paris due to weather — while other world leaders, like Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, went ahead with their respective events.
