But Trump ditched his planned visit and stayed in his hotel room because of unspecified "scheduling and logistical difficulties caused by the weather, " according to a White House statement.

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 almost 2,000 US soldiers killed in the World War I battle of Belleau Wood.

Trump had been scheduled to lay a wreath and observe a moment of silence Saturday at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery and Memorial, located adjacent to Belleau Wood and about 60 miles (100 kilometers) northeast of Paris.

"I helped plan all of President Obama's trips for 8 years", he wrote on Twitter.

Bryant had an injury-plagued 2018 season in which he missed 60 games and landed on the disabled list twice with shoulder injuries. Bryant's career started amid some controversy, and sharp words from his agent, Scott Boras.

Ben Rhodes, who served as a deputy national security adviser under former US President Barack Obama, also hit back saying weather was not an excuse. The allegedly inclement weather, however, did not preclude French President Emmanuel Macron German Chancellor Angela Merkel from attending, the former even tweeted a photo of the two European leaders together with "Unis" which translates in English to "United".

"There is always a rain option".

Instead, Trump spent much of the day following a meeting and lunch with French President Emmanuel Macron at the US ambassador's residence, where he was staying during events to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.

Twitter was quick to point out that maybe Trump didn't attend because he's not very good with an umbrella.

Tommy Vietor cited the fact Trump still hasn't visited U.S. troops serving in Afghanistan during his two years in office.
