French Leader Invites Trump to Bastille Day Event to Honor WWI Troops

From the June 28, 2017, Chicago Tribune.

French President Emmanuel Macron invited President Donald Trump to a Bastille Day celebration next month to celebrate the arrival 100 years ago of the American troops who fought alongside the French during World War I.

An official of the presidential Elysee Palace said the invitation to Trump and first Lady Melania Trump was extended Tuesday during a telephone conversation to prepare the two leaders' meeting during the G-20 summit in Germany on July 7-8.

France celebrates Bastille Day with a military parade down the Champs-Elysees every July 14.  The official says the White House is examing the feasibilty of a Paris visit.

Here's hoping the president goes.  This was payback for the American Revolution.
