WIN­STON Churchill’s grand­son slammed Donald Trump for can­celling a visit to a ceme­tery. The US Pres­i­dent, left, cried off be­cause of bad weather and Sir Ni­cholas Soames said: “Pa­thetic in­ad­e­quate Donald Trump couldn’t even defy the weather to pay his re­spects.” Mr Trump was due at the Amer­i­can ceme­tery in Bel­leau yes­ter­day where, in 1918, 1,800 US troops died re­pelling Ger­man forces.

Trump of­fi­cials said heavy rain grounded his he­li­copter. But Ben Rhodes, White House trip plan­ner to Barack Obama, said: “There’s al­ways a rain op­tion. Al­ways.”
