France says Trump should have shown “decency” on Paris attacks anniversary

“As for the tweets, yesterday was November 13, we were commemorating the murder of 130 of our countrymen three years ago in Paris and in Saint Denis. So I will reply in English: ‘common decency’ would have been appropriate,” France’s government spokesman said on Wednesday.

U.S. President Donald Trump should have shown some “common decency” and respect France’s day of mourning on the third anniversary of the November 13 attacks in Paris, the French government’s spokesman said on Wednesday (November 14).

Asked about tweets sent by Trump, in which the U.S. leader criticized France’s record in World War One and Two and slammed French President Emmanuel Macron’s popularity ratings, government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux replied partly in English.

“Common decency would have been appropriate,” he told journalists.
