Trump Says Paris Attack Could Help Le Pen

Wochit Headline News - Friday, 21 April 2017
On Friday, in an interview with The Associated Press, President Donald Trump commented that he believes Thursday's attack in Paris will "probably help" far-right candidate Marine Le Pen in France's upcoming election. In the interview, Trump did not endorse Le Pen, but said that believes she will be helped by the attack that left a Paris police officer dead. Trump said she's the candidate who is "strongest on borders, and she's the strongest on what's been going on in France." Trump said that he is not worried about encouraging terrorists by saying an attack can have an impact on a democratic election.
