President Donald Trump responded on Sunday to news of a deadly knife attack that took place in Paris on Saturday.
“So sad to see the Terror Attack in Paris. At some point countries will have to open their eyes & see what is really going on,” the president said.
The president tweeted about “sickness & hatred” that drives terrorism and the need to change the current prevailing “thought process on terror.”
So sad to see the Terror Attack in Paris. At some point countries will have to open their eyes & see what is really going on. This kind of sickness & hatred is not compatible with a loving, peaceful, & successful country! Changes to our thought process on terror must be made.

President Trump has often responded to terror attacks by suggesting that the way they are handled, particularly in European nations, is ineffective.
Another horrific attack, this time in Nice, France. Many dead and injured. When will we learn? It is only getting worse.

the world ever realize what is going on? So sad.

Top suspect in Paris massacre, Salah Abdeslam, who also knew of the Brussels attack, is no longer talking. Weak leaders, ridiculous laws!

His response on Sunday echoed the sentiments of “Fox & Friends” weekend host Pete Hegseth, who said that France was facing a “slow-motion 9/11” because they were unable to fix the problem.
