Paris mayor fires back at Donald Trump

In a textbook example of beautifully trolling the current king of social media, the mayor of Paris today used Twitter to fire back at President Donald Trump after he insulted the French city in a speech.

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".

Hollande touted the attractiveness of the Paris resort as a tourist destination Saturday during his visit. "I think that it is never good to show the smallest defiance toward an allied country, " Hollande told journalists at an agricultural trade fair, according to Reuters.

"I have a friend, he's a very, very substantial guy", said the President.

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.

He continued: 'I won't make comparisons but here, people don't have access to guns.

Hollande called on Trump to show more solidarity after he told the story of a friend named "Jim" who thought that "Paris is no longer Paris" after a series of attacks which rocked the French capital.

"Yes, no one wants to go to Paris anymore because it's frightful here, apparently", he said as he entered the theater.

Now, Trump said, his friend doesn't visit.

"Now he doesn't even think in terms of going there".

Paris faced a massive terrorist attack in 2015 that killed 130 people.

"I took a lot of heat on Sweden, " Trump said, to laughter from the friendly crowd. He incorrectly suggested that there was a terror attack in Sweden last Friday, puzzling the Nordic country's leadership.
