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.”

President Trump has often responded to terror attacks by suggesting that the way they are handled, particularly in European nations, is ineffective.

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.
