President Joe Biden concluded his trip to France by paying tribute to American war heroes at the Aisne-Marne Cemetery, a gesture distinctly opposing former President Donald Trump's earlier avoidance of the site.

On Sunday, Biden placed a wreath at the cemetery, marking the graves of over 2,200 U.S. soldiers who perished in World War I. This somber act contrasted Trump's notorious decision to skip the visit in 2018, which reportedly stemmed from derogatory views on the war dead.

Biden's visit emphasized his commitment to America's global alliances, juxtaposing sharply with Trump's isolationist perspectives. As the November election looms, Biden's actions seek to underline the stark choice voters face regarding the nation's democratic values and international role.
