During a 2018 visit to France, President Donald Trump reportedly refused to visit the site of a WWI cemetery and made disparaging comments about American soldiers killed at the Battle of Belleau Wood in 1918. Host Marco Werman speaks to historian James Taub, the former education coordinator for the United States World War I Centennial Commission, about the significance of this battle.
