A woman charged President Donald Trump’s motorcade as it carried him along Paris’ Avenue des Champs-Élysées for a World War I Armistice ceremony. He was not harmed.
The woman was quickly apprehended by French security officials and Trump continued to the event in his heavily armored Cadillac limousine, known colloquially as “The Beast.” The protester appeared to have written “fake peacemaker on her body,” a play on his characterization of many media outlets as “fake news.”
Meantime, world leaders walked together in a show of unity to the Arc de Triomphe, the site of the solemn ceremony. Many were carrying umbrellas under rainy conditions in the French capital.
Not among them: Trump, a day after he riled up his critics by canceling a visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in France, the final resting place of nearly 2,000 U.S. soldiers killed in the World War I battle of Belleau Wood.
“Due to security protocols the president arrived separately,” press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.
Also not among them: Russian President Vladimir Putin, who also arrived solo.
Social media users trolled Trump Saturday by posting pictures of former President Barack Obama giving several speeches in the rain.
