Posted February 26, 2017

French President Francois Hollande fired back at Donald Trump on Saturday (February 25) after the USA president remarked in a speech that a friend thought "Paris is no longer Paris" after attacks by Islamist militants, as he opened the annual agricultural fair in Paris.

French Foreign Affairs Minister Jean Marc Ayrault also responded to Trump via social media, adding that 3.5 million American tourists did not share the US President's misgivings about France in 2016.

Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference, the US President said that his friend Jim refused to visit the country since the terrorist attacks on Paris and Nice. Paris is no longer Paris.' That was four years, four, five years, hasn't gone there.

George Clooney used the red carpet to speak up for Paris as he headed into the awards ceremony for this year's Cesar, the French version of the Oscar, where he received a "Cesar d'honneur" for his work. "'Paris? I don't go there anymore, Paris is no longer Paris'".

But while visiting the theme park, Hollande said: "I may send a special ticket to one of them, so that he at least comes to Euro Disney and understands what France is".

"That is not what I do toward a friendly country and I ask the American president not to do it to France", he said at the opening of the annual agricultural fair in Paris.

The French president has invited Donald Trump to Disneyland Paris so he can "understand what France is". Take a look at what's happening to our world folks and we have to be smart. "He wouldn't miss it for anything, now he doesn't even think in terms of going there". Take a look at what's happened in France. We have to be smart.
