Donald Trump learned his lesson when it comes to deadly Paris attacks. Following the Charlie Hebdo shootings in January, The Donald came under fire after he used Twitter to knock France’s strict gun control laws. Now he’s giving his support to the nation after 127 perished there Nov. 13
Donald Trump, 69, has definitely learned that a deadly shooting tragedy overseas isn’t the time or place to talk about gun control. Back on Jan. 7, 2015 when terrorists killed a dozen people at the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, he knocked France’s tight gun control standards on his Twitter account, outraging pretty much everyone. Lesson learned. Now he’s sending his thoughts to the people of France following the deadly coordinated attacks that killed 127 Nov. 13, but Twitter users are not letting him forget his previous comment.
After the deadly Charlie Hebdo shooting, the Republican presidential frontrunner posted, “Isn’t it interesting that the tragedy in Paris took place in one of the toughest gun control countries in the world?” He was immediately called out by outraged users for his insensitive comment. Unfortunately for him, his controversial tweet resurfaced Nov. 13 and people on his Twitter page reminded him of that.

Following series of coordinated attacks in the French capital Nov. 13, Donald simply noted “My prayers are with the victims and hostages in the horrible Paris attacks. May God be with you all.” Great response Donald! Tragedies like this aren’t the time or place to bring up controversial policy issues, but the Twittersphere has a long memory.
At least 153 people died in a series of coordinated attacks in the French capital the evening of Nov.13 in at least five separate deadly incidents. French authorities report 112 people were killed at the Bataclan Theater during a heavy metal concert, 14 died at a Cambodian restaurant, 19 died outside of a bar, four were killed outside the Stade de France after a suicide bomber detonated his device, and four were killed in an incident on the Avenue Republique.
Our thoughts remain with the people of France and the families of the victims during this very difficult time. Stay tuned to HollywoodLife.com for more updates as news breaks.
