U.S. President Donald Trump has wrapped up a visit to France, where he was the guest of honor Friday at this year's Bastille Day celebrations and commemorations. It also marked the centennial of America's entry into World War One. For France, hosting Trump was deeply symbolic at a time when Western European leaders are increasingly alarmed at what they perceive as the U.S. administration's isolationist and protectionist tendencies.
