British Conservative MP Nicholas Soames, former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill's grandson, ripped U.S. President Donald Trump on Saturday for canceling a planned visit to a World War I commemoration event in France due to bad weather.
"They died with their face to the foe and that pathetic inadequate @realDonaldTrump couldn’t even defy the weather to pay his respects to The Fallen," Soames wrote on Twitter.
Soames added Trump is "not fit to represent his great country."
Trump's Chief of Staff John Kelly and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford attended the ceremony, which was not interrupted by weather in the end.

Trump did brave the weather Sunday and joined French President Emmanuel Macron and dozens of other world leaders to mark 100 years since the end of World War I.
Trump was accompanied by first lady Melania Trump at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, at the base of the Arc de Triomphe.
As he was arriving, at least one woman ran out toward the presidential motorcade with slogans, including the word FAKE, written on her chest. The woman was tackled by police and the motorcade continued uninterrupted.
