Winston Churchill’s Grandson Rebukes Trump For Missing WW1 Ceremony Due To Rain

Sir Nicholas Soames, grandson of Winston Churchill, said President Trump is "not fit to represent this great country."

The grandson of Winston Churchill, Sir Nicholas Soames, had harsh words for President Donald Trump on Saturday and the U.S. leader opted against visiting a French cemetery to honor the fallen soldiers of World War I, reportedly due to the rain.

Soames called Trump “pathetic”, “inadequate”, and “not fit to represent this great country.”

Via KTLA 5:

> The president is in France attending events commemorating 100 years since the end of the war. On Saturday, Trump and first lady Melania were slated to visit the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery at the site of the Battle of Belleau Wood in northern France.

>

> They did not attend the event because of “scheduling and logistical difficulties caused by the weather,” the White House said in a statement.

The decision rankled Soames, who commented on the issue via Twitter:

> “They died with their face to the foe and that pathetic inadequate @realDonaldTrump couldn’t even defy the weather to pay his respects to The Fallen,” Soames wrote, including a hashtag saying Trump is “not fit to represent this great country.”
