During a trip to France in 2018, Trump said he didn't want to visit the cemetery where U.S. soldiers who had fallen in the war were buried. "He didn't think it was important to honor them," The Atlantic revealed in a report.
On that occasion, Trump canceled his visit to the Aisne-Marne cemetery in Paris because the helicopter could not take him there due to the rain. Attendants of the trip assured The Atlantic that the real reason was different.
Trump said to his assistants he was afraid that his hair would be disheveled in the rain. Also, he questioned "why we should go to that cemetery if it’s filled with losers," four of the President's companions assured.
On November 10, 2018, which was the day of the scheduled visit to the cemetery, the U.S. Marine Corps were celebrating their 243 anniversary.
