Hundreds protest sexual violence at UVM on Admitted Students Visit Day

Editor’s note: This story was updated Feb. 22 at 9:00 p.m. to correct the spelling of a source’s last name and to correct the year used in one of the timeline points. 

Hundreds gathered on Feb. 18, Admitted Students Visit Day, to protest UVM’s Feb. 17 Instagram post, which simultaneously congratulated athletics and denounced anonymous accusations of sexual assault on social media.

UVM posted on Instagram at approximately 9 p.m. to congratulate its men’s basketball team on its sixth straight America East Regular Season Title and to draw attention to the issue of sexual violence at the University.

“UVM does not tolerate sexual assault misconduct and takes such accusations seriously,” the post stated. “Anonymous accusations on social media are not helpful to victims or to anyone impacted by sexual violence.”

The protest

Between 200 – 300 students congregated on the green at Andrew Harris Commons, said Melanie Waldbrise, sergeant for UVM Police Services. The group formed around 11:40 a.m. and officially began its demonstration at noon, brandishing signs and filling the air with chants.

“UVM appointed a Sexual Violence Prevention and Education Coordinator approximately 18 days ago and what happened?” first-year Sofia Ferraro said. “UVM has yet again shown that they only care about protecting rapists and sexual assault perpetrators with last night’s Instagram post.”

As the protestors passed through the Davis Center, other students on the second-floor balcony stood and cheered in support of the cause.

After several speakers addressed the crowd outside, the procession marched through the Davis Center and passed Brennan’s Pub and Bistro, a site marked off with reserved seating for Admitted Students Visit Day attendees.

Many tour guides, known as AdvoCats, went on strike the day of the protest in response to UVM’s Instagram post, according to a Feb. 20 email from Director of Admissions Moses Murphy. In their absence on ASVD, admissions pivoted to offering self-guided tours.

“I explicitly informed guests that many of our students were engaging in social activism on Friday, and that AdvoCats were choosing to also engage in activism by not leading the ASV day campus tours,” Murphy’s email stated.

The last time UVM students staged a protest on an ASVD was the 2018 Waterman Takeover , according to a Feb. 18 email from Murphy.

The Waterman Takeovers are historic UVM protest events, all of which aimed to address issues of race and racism within the UVM community, according to VTDigger’s republished edition of the Cynic’s Black History Month coverage .

This protest happening on ASVD threatens UVM’s retention of the next incoming class, which will push the University into acting, first-year Adam Franz said.

“If I was coming to admitted students day, and I saw this protest, I’d be really fucking scared to go here,” junior Ali Fanger said. “If you’re going to pay a ton of money to go here, know that UVM doesn’t protect survivors.”

The protest made a significant impression on admitted student Rachael Neiberger, and was the most memorable part of her day, she said.

“[This] complicates the image of the school,” Neiberger said. “[I’m] less comfortable and concerned about safety.”

Sophomore Sean Cunneen said UVM’s mishandling of sexual violence shocks him. He had a friend visiting UVM for Admitted Students Visit Day, who was not happy to hear about this issue, Cunneen said.

“[I] recommended that she doesn’t choose [UVM] as a final school,” Cunneen said. “If UVM keeps behaving this way, […] they’re going to be losing popularity and if they want to keep getting students’ money they have to change.”

The University of Vermont congratulates its men’s basketball team on their sixth straight American East Regular Season Title. UVM does not tolerate sexual misconduct and takes such accusations seriously. Incidents are reported through the Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity where support and follow-up is provided promptly. Anonymous accusations on social media helpful to victims or to anyone impacted by sexual violence.

— The post made by UVM's official Instagram

The cause for protest

The Instagram post received 280 comments in 30 minutes, according to a post from Instagram account @shareyourstoryuvm, an account for survivors to share their stories of assault anonymously.

UVM removed its post after 30 minutes, according to a handout from the event.

The post uploaded to UVM’s Instagram account does not match the style guide they typically use for posts. Instead it matches the style guide used by @shareyourstoryuvm.

UVM’s typical statement posts are designed with a bright photo in the background and a serif typeface.

The post uploaded on Thursday night was designed with a green background, white sans serif text and logo UVM-0001 , a primary athletic mark, which are all elements @shareyourstory includes in their posts.

UVM athletics faced backlash for protecting abusers within its institution, according to several student sources and the @shareyourstoryuvm Instagram posts. The men’s basketball team in particular is the target of a significant number of allegations.

Ten posts on @uvmshareyourstory mention the men’s basketball team, eight of which detail sexual assault, as of Feb. 18. One of these posts is a duplicate. No other sports team at UVM is mentioned this frequently on the account.

Graduate student Kendall Ware faced a mishandling of her sexual assault investigation as an undergrad in fall 2020, according to an Oct. 13, 2020 Cynic article on the case. Her abuser played for the men’s basketball team at the time.

“It’s just hard to see sports teams being congratulated when there are survivors at this school who are not being heard,” sophomore and survivor Sabine Love said. “And their use of the language ‘victim’ instead of ‘survivors,’ I mean, we’re not victims. We are survivors. That is very triggering.”

First-year Sofia Ferraro said she found the post tone-deaf and insensitive.

“I think them turning off [Instagram] comments is a way of protecting their reputation,” Ferraro said. “Every school has a sexual assault issue but the way UVM handles it is just so incredibly poor.”

Senior Jessie Dion said these issues need to be addressed and UVM should avoid pushing these issues under the rug.

“The posts that UVM basketball put up [were] so terrible, to say that anonymous things don’t help anybody because it does help people,” Dion said. “But that should be addressed. These players shouldn’t be allowed to play despite their skill.”

Patricia Prelock, provost and senior vice president, addressed the UVM community in an email sent two hours after the protest, at 2:04 p.m. Feb. 18.

“Following a University post yesterday about the Men’s Basketball team, there were numerous harmful comments accusing the entire team of sexual misconduct,” the email stated. “We are aware that UVM’s post in response to these comments was not received in the way it was intended.”

UVM does not tolerate sexual violence and has put significant effort and resources into prevention and support, according to the the email.

UVM athletics recognizes the harm felt by survivors and the importance of their control over if and how they choose to come forward, according to a statement from Director of Athletics Jeff Schulman, by way of a Feb. 20 email from Nich Hall, director of communications for UVM athletics.

The athletics department refers all known allegations to the Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity immediately upon becoming aware, according to the statement. The AAEO then handles investigating those reports independently.

“As is the case for all students, student-athletes are not sanctioned based solely on an allegation on social media or elsewhere,” Schulman stated. “We are also aware of student-athletes who are being collectively targeted with accusations simply due to their association with a particular team or group and recognize the impact of these accusations.”

UVM Athletics has also expanded its sexual violence prevention programming significantly over the past several months, according to the email and a Feb. 14 Vermont Cynic article.

This protest comes nearly 10 months after thousands of students staged a walk-out May 3, 2021. Protestors flooded the steps of Waterman to stand against UVM’s handling of sexual violence and to advocate for improved prevention and support strategies for the UVM community.

On May 3, 2021, UVM administration agreed to a set of 17 student demands, originally released April 30, 2021, according to a May 4, 2021 Cynic article.

Since that time, UVM has implemented 14 demands on the list and is in the process of implementing the final three, according to the University’s   We Hear You website .

Still, UVM’s efforts since last spring have been unsatisfactory, Franz said.

“It’s not enough to say nice things, it’s not enough to post things on social media,” Franz said. “If they’re really committed to [ending] sexual violence on our campus, they need to put a lot more resources into it.”

It’s just hard to see sports teams being congratulated when there are survivors at this school who are not being heard. And their use of the language ‘victim’ instead of ‘survivors,’ I mean, we’re not victims. We are survivors. That is very triggering.

— Sabine Love, sophomore and survivor

The collective effort behind the protest

Love first saw the idea for this protest on YikYak, an anonymous social media platform, they said.

“[It] was super surprising that an anonymous social media platform was able to basically create a protest in under 12 hours, of just people saying that they were angry and they want to protest and then people came together and heard other people’s voices,” she said.

UVM Union of Students later shared details of the event on their Instagram story at 12:03 a.m., Feb. 18.

Explain the Asterisk VT, an organization that aims to end campus sexual violence, according to its website, shared the same event details on their Instagram story around 10 a.m., Feb. 18.

“My immediate reaction [to UVM’s post], I had a pit in my stomach,” first-year Clara Campbell said.

Campbell found it disgusting that the post went directly from congratulating the basketball team to what she believed was invalidating survivors, she said.

“It’s a kick in the face to [say], ‘We take this seriously, but not seriously enough to give it its own post,’” Franz said. “It’s performative and they couldn’t even get the performance right.”

What is to come?

Ferraro said although students have not distilled specific additional demands for the University to address, she is grateful to see that action is happening.

“The protest today was more about gaining momentum,” Ferraro said. “These people were so angry, like, rightfully so. There’s going to be a lot in the future that I know already people have been planning.”

Dion said they are also looking forward to seeing people bringing their attention back to this issue.

“I think it is really important to continue this work,” Dion said. “And I think that there could be more protests. And I think that the University just needs to do more.”

The University can do much better to address sexual assault on campus if more people listen and act in support, sophomore Wes Hatfield said.

Seeing student activism is encouraging, admitted student Wyatt Pole said.

“I was scared because of [the protest] but at the same time […] I feel better that they’re being vocal about it,” Pole said.

Love and junior Abigale Szlajen said students are in the process of planning another protest, set to take place early next week.

Any survivors in need of support can access 24/7 hotline services through HOPE Works advocates at (802)-863-1236.

CAPS Counselor Laurie Brown is hosting a weekly Survivor’s Space for drop-in support, Thursdays from 5-6:30 p.m. at the Women and Gender Equity Center, through the Center for Health and Wellbeing, according to UVM’s website . The Center is located at 34 South Williams St.

Statewide sunscreen dispenser program.

Sunscreen dispenser at Centennial Field (Burlington, Vermont)

Sun Safety is in Your Hands – Statewide Sunscreen Dispenser Program Adds 16 Sites

Coalition of health groups team up with recreation sites to combat high rates of skin cancer.

If you are among those who didn’t bring sunscreen when enjoying the outdoors at a Vermont park or recreation site, we’ve got you covered! Vermont’s cancer coalition (VTAAC), Dartmouth Cancer Center, University of Vermont (UVM) Cancer Center and national non-profit IMPACT Melanoma are expanding a program that stationed free sunscreen dispensers at 12 parks around the state last year. With the addition of 16 new dispenser sites, even more people will have access to free sunscreen and the protection it provides against over exposure to the sun.

Vermont has the nation’s second-highest incidence rate of melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer. According to the Vermont Department of Health, exposure to ultraviolet light from the sun or tanning beds is a major risk factor for developing melanoma.

“Prevention is the key to avoiding this deadly form of cancer,” said Sharon Mallory, director of the Health Department’s Comprehensive Cancer Control Program. “Even on cloudy or cool days ultraviolet rays can be harmful, so it’s important to protect your skin with a sunblock that’s labeled SPF 30 or higher,” said Mallory. “These dispensers provide free and easy to access sunscreen for everyone, which means you don’t have to worry that you left yours at home.”

“To put it simply, sun safety is literally in our hands,” said Hanna Snyder, coalition coordinator of VTAAC, which oversees the dispenser program. “Our goal is to meet people where they are. And not just with sunscreen, but to also make sure Vermonters have the information they need to understand sun safety, the risk exposure presents for cancer, and the actions they can take to keep themselves and their family safe outdoors,” Snyder said.

Each site will receive a sunscreen dispenser and a start-up supply of sunscreen through this program. Sites also implement additional sun safety programming, such as education through posters, social media, and outdoor swim instruction.

The convenience of sunscreen access can make an important difference, especially among young people. Any sunburn increases your risk of developing melanoma.

Experts advise that the best way to protect yourself from UV rays while still enjoying the warm weather is to use sunscreen, seek shade during the middle of the day when the sun’s rays are strongest, and to cover up with clothing, hats and UV-blocking sunglasses.

“We are so fortunate to have partners like the State of Vermont and our friends at VTAAC, the UVM Cancer Center and the Dartmouth Cancer Center in making cancer prevention accessible to everyone,” said Deb Girard, executive director of IMPACT Melanoma.

  • 6 Most Beautiful Small Towns in Vermont for 2024

Vermont is a very vibrant state to visit this summertime. Best of all, there are a number of beautiful small towns in Vermont that are sure to keep you entertained and enamored. In idyllic farming towns like Grafton, get to see how Vermont produces its signature maple syrup. In mountainous towns like Stowe and Woodstock, learn to appreciate the looming, thriving mountains that have sheltered many a homestead since America’s founding. And in a state named after the French phrase “les monts vert” meaning “green mountains” as an allusion to the Green Mountains, give yourself a chance to visit this year’s six most beautiful small towns in Vermont.

Spectacular Stowe, Vermont, in the fall.

No need to feel like a stowaway when you are traveling with family and friends to the lovely town of Stowe . Sitting at the top of one of Vermont’s highest peaks, Stowe is one of the best premier resort towns in all of New England with its picture-alluring views of Mount Mansfield and the Green Mountains. This same mountain promises exhilarating skiing and hiking opportunities for the hungriest of adventurers, while the Auto Toll Road will take you to the very summit of Mount Mansfield. One can admire historic ski gear at the Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum. The Smugglers’ Notch State Park is a thick thicket of woodlands in the Green Mountains, replete with several camping areas and routes sure to create scenic memories.

From July to August, let the annual Music in the Meadow serenade you with soft jazz and other melodic music from Vermont’s mountains. On October, on the other hand, participate in the hectic Vermont Pumpkin Chuckin’ Festival or the Von Trapp Brewing Oktoberfest . Whether in spring, summer, autumn, or winter, Stowe is an enticing destination for your trip to Vermont, made worthwhile by fine establishments like the Riverside Inn, the Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa, or Trapp Family Lodge.

Early autumn foliage scene of houses in the mountains of Woodstock, Vermont.

Although this particular town has no affiliations with the historical events of the Woodstock Festival that occurred in New York , there is still much fun and excitement to be found in this quaint little town called Woodstock . Around the town square that many affectionately call the Green are several historic structures such as pink sandstone Norman Williams Public Library from the 1880s. Within the rural countryside of Woodstock lies the Billings Farm & Museum, a dairy farm that has churned many a milky produce since the 19 th century and gives visitors a glimpse of the simple farm life.

Travelers can venture into the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park for both the panoramic walks and an 1800s Queen Anne-themed mansion in its grounds. One might also consider climbing Mount Tom or Mount Peg for a grand lay of the land, or go swimming down at the Kedron Valley Pond and Silver Lake. And on June, do attend several Artistree music events such as the Juan Nieves & Legado Orquestra with its Latin-American-themed music. Should you desire a longer stay in Woodstock, then seek your nightly comforts and rest at the Woodstock Inn & Resort, The Woodstocker B&B, or The Shire Woodstock.

Summer Farmers Market in Montpelier, Vermont

Despite being the capital city of Vermont, Montpelier engenders the ambiance of a small town with its 8,000 population and a lackadaisical atmosphere. About 22 miles from Stowe, the town was named after the city of Montpelier in France. One can admire the gold-domed architectural beauty of the Vermont State House that has stood tall and proud since 1859, complete with a marble statue in its portico representing Ethan Allen , leader of the Green Mountain Boys during the American Revolution . From spring to winter, travelers can brave the slopes of the Green Mountains or traipse through Hubbard Park. Learn more of Montpelier’s—and the whole of Vermont’s—past at the Vermont History Center Museum, or stroll along the meandering Winooski River . Most importantly, watch theatrical and musical performances at the Lost Nation Theater. More resplendent delights await in Montpelier, so seek a place to spend your evenings at The Inn at Montpelier or High Hill Inn.

Grafton, Vermont, USA: Main Street in Grafton

Approximately 39 miles from Woodstock, the humble village of Grafton welcomes newcomers near and far with all sorts of arboreal attractions.

View of the historic and colorful Manchester Village in Manchester, Vermont with tulips in bloom

Within the Battenkill River Valley, and with the Green Mountains surrounding the area, the town of Manchester is brimming with all sorts of activities and adventures. Trailblazers can take the great Appalachian Trail that winds and weaves through the Green Mountains, the Taconic Range, and finally to the Appalachian Mountain Ranges . History buffs will be rivetted by the Hildene mansion, the former home of President Abraham Lincoln’s son, Robert Todd Lincoln. Perhaps the many marble quarries in the region, such as the Dorset Quarry whose stones have built many of the houses in Manchester and beyond, will make you marvel at human ingenuity. The Southern Vermont Art Center is the location of Manchester’s famous summer film and art festivals for those wanting to celebrate the lively cultures of Vermont. You will not feel unwanted and unwelcome in Manchester, especially while staying in opulent lodgings like the Equinox Resort, the Kimpton Taconic Hotel, or The Inn at Manchester.

Bennington, Vermont: Downtown district

Around 31 minutes from Manchester in the north, the town of Bennington is a convenient waystation for towns in the states of New York and Massachusetts . Bennington is recorded to be one of Vermont’s first towns when it was founded and named after by colonial Governor of New Hampshire , Benning Wentworth, in 1749. It was also the birthplace of the Green Mountain Boys and home of Ethan Allen, and later on the Battle of Bennington was fought in 1777. One can stand atop the 306-foot-tall stone obelisk called Bennington Battle Monument to see nearby segments of New York, Massachusetts, and Vermont combined.

Similar to other towns in the Green Mountains, travelers can appreciate Vermont’s vivacious wilderness while hiking along the Appalachian and Long Trails. You can even join swarms of hikers during the Bennington Trailfest every year in July. Consider delving into the mysterious Everett Cave or watching local performances at the Monument Arts & Cultural Center. Whatever you decide on, you ought to first find a good place to settle down at the Autumn Inn or Four Chimneys Inn & Restaurant.

Parting Notes

Where a ferocious battle and iconic heroes were born in towns like Bennington, where culture and history continue to thrive in destinations like Montpelier, there is no shortage of opportunities to cherish your visit in the Green Mountain State. So gear up for a grand climb through the mountainous landscapes, and explore 2024’s most beautiful small towns in Vermont.

Lawmakers override Phil Scott’s veto of overdose prevention center bill

Updated at 6:22 p.m.

MONTPELIER — Lawmakers voted Monday afternoon to override Gov. Phil Scott’s veto of a bill that allows for the creation of an overdose prevention center in Burlington, reversing course after a rollercoaster day of uncertainty over the measure’s fate. 

After Senate lawmakers failed to override the veto during an initial vote, the measure passed on a second attempt when Sen. Richard Westman, R-Lamoille, changed his vote from “no” to “yes.”

H.72 will lay the legal framework to open a pilot site in Vermont’s largest city, funded by $1.1 million from settlements with pharmaceutical companies. It will also commission a study of the facility’s impact. 

Proponents of the bill have said an overdose prevention center, also known as a safe injection site, would create a safe and sanitary facility where people could use substances without fear of overdose. Amid near-record opioid overdoses in Vermont , advocates have said that such a site would be a crucial, lifesaving tool. 

But critics, including the governor, argued that such facilities were untested, and that the state’s limited funds would be better used to support recovery and treatment. After the legislature passed the bill last month, Scott vetoed it.

Legislative leaders believed they had the votes to override that veto, and the House voted Monday morning without incident to approve an override. But around noon, the override effort stalled in the upper chamber.

Senators needed 20 votes to meet the two-thirds margin required to override the veto, but came up one vote shy, at 19. 

Legislators and advocates outside the Senate chamber just after the Senate’s first vote were clearly surprised at the result. Some were visibly distraught. 

“It was absolutely a surprise. I thought we had the votes,” Sen. Tanya Vyhovsky, P/D-Chittenden Central, a strong proponent of the legislation, said after the vote. “And probably the most heartbreaking surprise that I’ve ever experienced in this building. I mean, that vote will kill people.” 

Later in the afternoon, however, the bill was back on the Senate floor. 

Westman, who voted against overriding the veto earlier that day, rose to ask lawmakers to take another vote on the measure Monday afternoon.  

Westman voted in favor of the bill last month when it came before the Senate initially. In an interview after the veto session, he said that he supported the bill but had gotten mixed up about what legislation was up for a vote.

“I wasn’t paying as close attention as I should,” Westman said. “I embarrassed myself. It’s the first time in 40 years I’ve ever had to make a motion like that.”

Westman’s reversal allowed the Senate to meet the threshold of 20 votes, completing the veto override effort.

Senate President Pro Tempore Sen. Phil Baruth, D/P-Chittenden Central, hailed the override in a statement issued shortly after its conclusion.  

“Today a tripartisan majority of the Senate voted to override Governor Scott’s misguided veto of the overdose prevention center bill, demonstrating our unwavering commitment to addressing Vermont’s opioid crisis,” Baruth said. “Governor Scott’s veto of this bill was an incredible disappointment, but I’m proud that the Vermont Senate delivered on our commitment to do everything in our power to accelerate the end of the opioid crisis in Vermont.”

The bill appeared to be imperiled by the shifting membership of the Senate between last month, when the chamber initially approved the bill, and Monday. 

A roll call record for the bill showed that Sen. Dick Sears, D-Bennington, initially voted in favor of the bill in May. Sears passed away earlier this month, and his seat is currently vacant. 

Sen. Andy Julow, D-Grand Isle, who was appointed last month by Gov. Phil Scott to fill the vacancy left by the retirement of the late Sen. Dick Mazza, also voted against overriding the bill Monday. 

Julow said in an interview that he believed the state’s limited resources should be used to reduce addiction and “dry up demand” for deadly opioids. 

The decision to vote no, he said, was “a really difficult one for me.”

Biden honors US war dead with a cemetery visit ending a French trip that served as a rebuke to Trump

BELLEAU, France (AP) — President  Joe Biden  closed out his trip to France by paying his respects at an American military cemetery that Donald Trump notably skipped when he was president, hoping his final stop Sunday helped draw the stakes of the  November election  in stark relief.

Before returning to the United States, Biden honored America’s war dead at the  Aisne-Marne American Cemetery  about an hour outside Paris. He placed a wreath at the cemetery chapel before an expanse of white headstones marking the final resting place of more than 2,200 U.S. soldiers who fought in World War I.

It was a solemn end to five days in which Trump was an unspoken yet unavoidable presence. On the surface, the trip marked the 80th anniversary of D-Day and celebrated the alliance between the United States and France. But during an election year when Trump has called into question fundamental understandings about America’s global role, Biden has embraced his Republican predecessor — and would-be successor — as a latent foil.

Every ode to  the transatlantic partnership  was a reminder that Trump could upend those relationships.  Each reference to democracy  stood a counterpoint to his rival’s efforts to overturn a presidential election. The myriad exhortations  to help Ukraine defend itself  against Russia created a contrast with Trump’s skepticism about providing U.S. assistance.

Biden’s paeans to the struggle between democracy and autocracy drew plaudits in Europe, where the prospect of a return to Trump’s turbulent reign has sparked no shortage of anxiety. But it remains to be seen how the message will resonate with American voters, as Biden’s campaign struggles to connect the dire warnings the Democratic president so often delivers about his rival with people’s daily concerns.

The visit to the cemetery served as a moment to underscore the contrast once more.

“It’s the same story,” Biden said. “America showed up. America showed up to stop the Germans. America showed up to make sure that they did not prevail. And America shows up when we’re needed just like our allies show for us.”

During a 2018 trip to France, Trump skipped plans to go to the cemetery, a decision that the White House  blamed on weather  at the time. However,  subsequent reports  said that Trump told aides he didn’t want to go because he viewed the dead soldiers as “suckers” and “losers.” Trump has denied the comments, although they were later corroborated by his chief of staff at the time, John Kelly.

Trump’s purported insults have become a regular feature of Biden’s campaign speeches, including during  an April rally in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

“These soldiers were heroes, just as every American who has served this nation,” Biden said. “Believing otherwise, that alone is disqualifying for someone to seek this office.”

Biden ignored a direct question about Trump at the cemetery but said it was important to visit the hallowed ground. “The idea that I would come to Normandy and not make the short trip here to pay tribute,” he added, his voice trailing off as if to express disbelief.

Trump, at a campaign rally in Las Vegas, said Sunday after Biden had left France that the president’s performance overseas was “terrible” and embarrassing, though Trump did not cite anything in particular. “This is not a representative for what used to be the greatest country,” he told his supporters, adding that under Biden “we are a nation in major decline and we’re going to stop it immediately.”

Maura Sullivan, a former Marine officer who served on the American Battle Monuments Commission under President Barack Obama, said Biden’s visit would “set the example, and do what a president should do.” Now an official with the New Hampshire Democratic Party, Sullivan said that “voters can draw their own conclusions” from that.

Biden’s trip was full of emotional moments, and the president grew heavy-eyed after meeting with World War II veterans. A 21-gun salute cast eerie smoke over 9,388 white marble headstones at the Normandy American Cemetery.

“This has been the most remarkable trip that I’ve ever made,” Biden said on Saturday night, his last in Paris before returning to the U.S.

At Aisne-Marne, Biden said the trip “surprised me how much it awakened my sense of why it’s so valuable to have these alliances. Why it’s so critical. That’s the way you stop wars, not start wars.”

His remarks over the last few days were also freighted with political overtones.

On Thursday at Normandy anniversary ceremonies, Biden said D-Day served a reminder that alliances make the United States stronger, calling it “a lesson that I pray we Americans never forget.” He also highlighted how the war effort drew on immigrants, women and people of color who were too often overlooked by history.

Then on Friday, he went to Pointe du Hoc, a spot on the coast where Army Rangers scaled cliffs to overcome Nazi defenses on D-Day that was also the site in 1984 of one of President Ronald Reagan’s most memorable speeches about the struggles between the West and the Soviet Union during the Cold War.

By following in an iconic Republican’s footsteps, Biden honed his appeal to traditional conservatives who are often frustrated by Trump’s isolationist vision. Biden issued a call for Americans to protect democracy like the Rangers who scaled the cliffs, a message that synced with campaign rhetoric that paints his election opponent as an existential threat to U.S. values.

While Biden was in France, his campaign announced that it had hired the onetime chief of staff to former Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger to lead outreach to GOP voters. Kinzinger clashed with Trump’s foreign policy and efforts to overturn the last presidential election.

At Pointe du Hoc, Biden said the Army Rangers “fought to vanquish a hateful ideology in the ‘30s and ‘40s. Does anyone doubt they wouldn’t move heaven and earth to vanquish hateful ideologies of today?”

Trump has argued that the U.S. needs to devote more attention to its own problems and less to foreign alliances and entanglements. He has also routinely played down the importance of American partnerships, suggesting the U.S. could abandon its treaty commitments to defend European allies if they don’t pay enough for their own defenses.

Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian who wrote a book about Pointe du Hoc and Reagan’s speech, said Biden “had big shoes to step into” by choosing the same location.

Biden’s speech “didn’t equal Reagan’s in grandeur, nor could it,” Brinkley said. Still, he said Biden “said the right words about why democracy matters.”

Paul Begala, a veteran Democratic strategist, said it could help Biden politically “to stand where Reagan stood.”

He noted that Biden is struggling with younger voters but appears to be gaining strength among older ones who may be more receptive to reminders of Reagan’s speech four decades ago.

“He needs a lot of Reagan Republicans to offset his challenges with younger voters,” he said.

Biden’s trip was also punctuated by the pomp of a state visit in Paris.

French President Emmanuel Macron arranged a ceremony at the Arc du Triomphe, where four fighter jets flew overhead, and hosted a banquet at the Elysee presidential palace.

“United we stand, divided we fall,” Macron said in toasting Biden. “Allied we are, and allied we will stay.”

Overall, Biden’s visit had a slower pace than other foreign trips. The 81-year-old president had no public events on his first day in Paris after arriving on an overnight flight, and didn’t hold a press conference with reporters, as is customary. John Kirby, a national security spokesman, said that was necessary to prepare “in advance of the weighty engagements” during subsequent days.

“There’s a lot on the calendar,” he said.

Still, it was a contrast to Macron’s tendency to offer prestigious guests an intense schedule with a mix of official meetings, business talks, cultural events and private dinners at fancy restaurants.

When the 46-year-old French leader hosted Chinese President Xi Jinping last month, the two-day agenda was crammed with activities including a trip to the Pyrenees Mountains near the border with Spain where Macron spent time as a child.
