(Newser) – President Obama will travel to Normandy for the 65th anniversary of the D-Day invasion, the New York Daily News reports. An aide to Nicolas Sarkozy spilled the beans on Obama’s June 6 visit after a reporter claimed the relationship between the two presidents was distant. “Relations are excellent and very productive,” Claude Gueant said, noting that Sarkozy and Obama talked yesterday about the upcoming G-20 summit.
