US President Donald Trump announced on Friday that he will be visiting Paris on November 11th in honour of the centenary of the end of WWI.

Trump who had planned to organise a military parade in November in Washington announced Friday that he would travel to Paris for the commemoration of the end of the First World War. 

The US president made the announcement on Twitter (see below) on Friday afternoon at the same as criticizing local politicians in Washington who he said were asking for too much money for the parade. 

"Never let anyone take you hostage!" he wrote.

 
In early February, the White House announced that Donald Trump wanted a parade to highlight the US's military power. 
 
The American president had been impressed by the French national day parade during his visit to France in July 2017.
