President Donald Trump, a day after Paris was again rocked by a terror attack, took to Twitter to weigh in on the aftermath, saying France’s presidential elections probably just took a serious twist and turn.
He tweeted: “Another terrorist attack in Paris. The people of France will not take much more of this. Will have a big effect on presidential election!”

Paris isn’t exactly a city of safety any longer — and hasn’t been since politicians have opened border doors to refugees from mostly Muslim nations, and turned blind eyes on the problem of Islam-based terror.
From the The Hill:
“Paris police say a gunman was shot dead Thursday after opening fire on officers along the Champs Elysees, killing one and wounding another.
“Trump did not mention any of the presidential contenders in France’s election by name. Eleven candidates are running, with four seen as have the best chances for making a run-off of two, which would be held May 7.
“Trump’s tweet comes the day after he offered ‘condolences from our people to the people of France’ during a press conference at the White House.”
Trump may not have mentioned any candidates by name in his tweet. But one candidate, Marine Le Pen, has been saying for months now that France needs to close down its borders and halt immigration — and that open borders bring risks of terror.
The rhetoric is similar to what Trump used during his own — successful — presidential run, one that was marked in the middle by terror attacks on America’s own soil (in Orlando, in June, at the gay nightclub, Pulse, that left 49 dead).
