A hot mic captured President Joe Biden informing French President Emmanuel Macron that Biden would have to be the first one to leave an 80th anniversary D-Day commemoration in Normandy, France, on Thursday.

The event took place at the Normandy American Cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer, a site that overlooks what the Allies designated as Omaha Beach, where Americans took their worst casualties during the D-Day invasion.

The cemetery contains the graves of 9,388 Americans who were killed on D-Day and in the battle for Normandy that followed. There are also 1,557 names listed on the Walls of the Missing at the location.

Ahead of the 80th anniversary of D-Day, ABMC staff and volunteers placed an American flag and French flag in front of each headstone at the Normandy American Cemetery. Tomorrow we will honor those who served and made the ultimate sacrifice 80 years ago. #dday80 — ABMC (@usabmc) …
