Macron, Trump Arrive at American Cemetery in France for WWII Memorial Service

French and US presidents, Emmanuel Macron and Donald Trump, have arrived at the World War II commemoration ceremony at the Normandy American Cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer in northern France.

The two presidents and the first ladies greeted one another and proceeded to shake hands with D-Day veterans, as shown on the White House live feed.

Trump and Macron will also participate in a bilateral meeting to reinforce the close economic and security cooperation between both nations.

The Trumps attended a D-Day ceremony in the United Kingdom earlier this week.
On 6 June, 75 years ago, the Allied forces landed on the Northern coast of France launching the liberation of France which was occupied by the Nazi forces at the time.
D-Day, or the Normandy landings, was the largest seaborne invasion in history that took place on June 6, 1944, during World War II and was carried out by the Western Allies. D-Day marked the beginning of the liberation of German-occupied France and the opening of the second front.
