World leaders with the power to make war but a duty to preserve peace solemnly marked the end of World War I's slaughter 100 years ago at commemorations Sunday that drove home the message "never again" but also exposed the globe's new political fault lines.
In his remarks at the cemetery, Trump said, "The American and French patriots of World War I embody the timeless virtues of our two republics".
During the interview, the politician discussed a myriad of topics, including his thoughts on a particular tweet made by American President Donald Trump.
President Donald Trump, a leader who has proudly declared himself a "nationalist" and advocated an "America First" approach, joined dozens of other world leaders Sunday at a ceremony focused on worldwide cooperation to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.

Putin also flashed Trump a thumbs-up sign and patted Trump's arm. He also flashed Trump a thumbs up, which is something of a signature move of the United States president during photo-ops.
"By putting our own interests first, with no regard to others, we erase the very thing that a nation holds dearest, and the thing that keeps it alive: its moral values", Macron said.
