One day after president Trump remarked in a speech at a conference that a friend thought "Paris is no longer Paris" after attacks by Islamist militants, French President Francois Hollande fired back at Donald Trump on Saturday. During a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday, Trump repeated his criticism of Europe's handling of attacks by Islamist militants saying a friend "Jim" no longer wanted to take his family to Paris.
Hollande said Trump should show support for U.S. allies. "There is terrorism and we must fight it together. I think that it is never good to show the smallest defiance toward an allied country. I wouldn't do it with the United States and I'm urging the U.S. president not to do it with France," Hollande said.
"I won't make comparisons but here, people don't have access to guns. Here, you don't have people with guns opening fire on the crowd simply for the satisfaction of causing drama and tragedy," Hollande said, responding to questions during a visit at the Paris Agric fair.
They may not have access to guns, but they have access to trucks which they then use to murder dozens of innocent bystanders in increasingly more frequent terrorist incidents, meanwhile the lack of guns prevents the local population from defending itself when one or more terrorists - who have access not only to guns but also explosives - use these to attack and murder members of the defenseless French population.
Oh yes, "here" the French people have also been living under what has effectively become a permanent state of emergency ever since the November 2015 Bataclan mass murder.
In fact, more than 230 people have died in a series of assaults in France since the beginning of 2015, and the country has been under a state of emergency rules since November the same year. Trump's comments also drew a rebuke from the mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo.
Meanwhile, another attack has taken place in the German town of Heidelberg, where as reported moments ago a knife-yielding man drove his car into a pedestrian area, injuring three, and was later shot by the local police.
It doesn’t matter. Everyone knows the reality.
The French President is in denial. Paris is not the sane as it was.
Europe capitulated to Islam facilitating the rape of its daughters and destruction of civilization.
Islam is a war plan.
I hope Marine LaPen wins. Hollande is a leftist pussy.
“Hollande is a leftist pussy.”
Yeah, he and Pena Nieto can get a room!
n he knows. he wants tourist $$$.
I for one will keep my memories of Paris when it was Paris. Never returning.
Maybe if we get our security act together and build the Wall, our tourism industry will benefit from believing America is one of the safest places to vacation.
I can’t imagine how bad the tourist business is in Paris these days. Shows you how the terrorism can severely cripple an economy. It’s not just the lives lost, it’s the fear and loss of business — pain that lasts a very long time.
It’s costing France a fortune in lost tourism dollars. Just one more “cost” to the coddling of Islamofascist scumbags.
LePen needs to continually hammer home the point that NONE of the Establishment candidates will do anything about Muslim immigration. That only she will take action.
Francois Hollande. Your typical French leader. He knows how to backpedal real well and cower when the threat is already in his backyard!
The Muslims wore gray, you wore blue.
We’ll always have Paris......
