Today, President Donald J. Trump is in Paris, France for meetings and celebrations with America's oldest ally. The President will meet with American military commanders and later with French President Macron. Tomorrow, the President will attend France's annual Bastille Day celebration--the first President to do so since 1989. To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the United States' entry into World War One, the people of France have designated America this year's national guest of honor. Troops from the US Army's First Infantry Division--the first unit to arrive on French soil in 1917--will march in the parade, and US Air Force Thunderbirds will conduct a flyover with planes from the French air force.
