Has Donald Trump started a war with the president of France, Francois Hollande? The French president says Trump makes him “retch.”

In a Paris meeting with 66 journalists, Hollande dismissed the billionaire’s comment that “France was no longer France.”

During one of Trump’s news conferences in Florida, he discussed the recent jihadist attacks in France. One occurred at a Normandy church, where a terrorist beheaded an elderly priest. On July 14, another terrorist rammed a truck down a popular Nice, France strolling boulevard, killing 84 people. It was Bastille Day, France’s equivalent of the 4th of July. The jihadist Islamic State group took credit for both attacks.

The Republican presidential hopeful said a friend recently visited France and told him:

‘I wouldn’t go to France. I wouldn’t go to France. France is no longer France.’

The billionaire continued:

‘They won’t like me for saying that, but you see what happened in Nice. You see what happened yesterday with the priest, who is supposed to be a spectacular man. France is no longer France.’

Trump intends to ban not only Muslims, but the French as well:

The French president told the reporters Tuesday:

‘His excesses make you want to retch, even in the United States, especially when — as was Donald Trump’s case — he speaks ill of a soldier, of the memory of a soldier.’

Hollande was speaking about Trump’s war with the Gold Star parents of a Muslim soldier, Humayun Khan. Khan died defending his men from a suicide bomber in the Iraq War.

Humayun’s father, Khizr Khan, spoke at the Democratic National Convention. He criticized Trump for “sacrificing nothing.” As a result of Khizr’s comments, Trump said he had been “viciously attacked.”

Hollande criticized Trump’s “hurtful and humiliating comments”:

‘Democracy is also at stake, as we see more and more people tempted by authoritarianism, especially in the United States.’

‘Should the American people choose Trump, there will be consequences, because a US election is a global election.’

Trump’s war against the grieving parents appears to have shaken the presidential campaign, just three months before the November vote.The presidential candidate tried to link ISIS violence to the Mideastern immigration to Europe:

‘It’s only going to get worse. Hillary Clinton wants to allow 550 percent more people from that region into our country, and we have no idea who they are, where they come from, where their documentation is. It’s only going to get worse.’

Hollande expressed extreme revulsion at Donald Trump’s “excesses” in the U.S. presidential campaign. He was offended by Trump’s authoritarian tone:

‘In the U.S., one of the world’s great democracies, maybe the greatest democracy, where democracy was born, before the French one, we see some excesses that are sickening.’

Trump called for a temporary ban on Muslims coming to the United States, and he said he would be far tougher in dealing with ISIS:

‘We have to get them and get them fast. This world better be very careful and better get very tough and very smart, and they’ll never do it with Hillary Clinton.’

France will hold its presidential election next year. Some French people believe Hollande is the most unpopular leader in modern French history. It is not clear whether he will run again. Hollande said:

‘The U.S. campaign provides themes that will then come into the French campaign.’

Hollande adds that the once “unthinkable” Trump administration has now entered the sphere of “foreseeable.”

The world considers Trump a serious threat. Americans would do well to do the same.
