Donald Trump‘s visit to a First World War cemetery was called off by the White House because of poor weather.

The grandson of Winston Churchill was among those who condemned Mr Trump for cancelling the trip.

He later said the issue had been “temporary” and “minor”, adding that “over a period of time, it healed up”.

White House chief of staff John Kelly, a retired Marine Corps general, his wife and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will visit instead.

Mr Trump is visiting France for a weekend commemorating the 100 years since the end of the First World War.

But a spat with French president Emmanuel Macron over their comments about European security threatened to divert attention away from this.

Later, Macron reiterated that Europe needs to build up its own military because it can no longer depend on the US for defence. »

Feeding a population of 9 billion in 2050 will require much more food than previously calculated.

The number of people could level off at around nine billion in a few years, compared to just over 7.6 billion now.

Changes in eating habits, attitudes towards food waste, increases in height and body mass, and demographic transitions are some of the reasons. »
