Paris mayor fires back at Trump for insulting her city

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo attended the french premiere of the film ‘Before the Flood’, (‘Avant Le Deluge’) at Chatelet Theater in Paris on Oct. 17, 2016.

PARIS >> Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo has pushed back at U.S. President Donald Trump for insulting the City of Light in a speech.

Trump evoked his friend Jim, “a very, very substantial guy,” in an address today at the Conservative political Action Conference. Jim used to be a regular visitor to Paris, Trump said, but hasn’t made the trip in four or five years because “Paris is no longer Paris.”

Hidalgo tweeted a photo of herself alongside Mickey Mouse and Minnie and said: “To Donald and his friend Jim, from the Eiffel Tower, we’re celebrating the attractiveness of Paris with Mickey and Minnie.”

In another tweet, with the hashtag #Donald&Jim, Hidalgo said American tourist reservations are up 30 percent in 2017 so far compared to last year.
