Donald Trump's Paris Insults Met With Mocking Hospitality From French President

US President Donald Trump's remarks about Paris during his speech in a conference irked the French. President Francois Hollande mockingly invited the American President to visit Paris and visit destinations including "Disneyland Paris," which the French President could help the American President understand France and Europe.

According to The Independent, US President Donald Trump referred to his friend "Jim" who frequently visited Paris had halted all his travels to the French capital in the past decade because of the fear of attacks in the country. During his Conservative Political Action Conference speech, Trump declared Paris was "no longer a safe destination for US tourists."

During his speech in Paris' agriculture fair, Hollande said that he might "send a special ticket" to either "Jim" or the US President so that both might understand "what France is." Hollande said that Paris -- along with the rest of the world -- is dealing with terrorism that "we must fight together" and showing "defiance towards an allied country" is something he would not do to the United States.

Hollande highlighted Disneyland Paris and "Euro Disney" as particular highlights to understanding France. Indeed, the festivities of Disneyland Paris for 2017 are massive because it is celebrating its 25th anniversary. According to Theme Park Insider, passes are going for the cheap. The theme park news website also said that Disneyland Paris participation is staggering due to terrorism, but the offers could be difficult to pass up.

Terror attacks had led to a steep decline in French tourism that began to attract international concern after the massive grenade attacks in a music concert in Bataclan that killed hundreds of participants. A lorry that ran into crowds during Bastille Day that killed 86 people then followed.

The latest attack in the Louvre had further dented Paris' tourism economy. A man authorities believe have been radicalised had begun assaulting visitors of the famed art museum before authorities arrived and shot him due to consistent aggression.

Currently, French tourism officials are expanding their air networks into Southeast Asia to support its dwindling tourism economy. According to Sun Star, a local Philippine newspaper, officials are in talks with Philippine tourism to discuss direct flights into the European country.
