As American leftists continue their hysterics over President Trump’s temporary halt on travel from terror hotbed countries, France illustrates sadly once again why he’s right.
As the Daily Mail reports, A man armed with a machete was shot five times in the stomach after attempting to storm the famous Louvre museum, home to the Mona Lisa. After being refused entry, he pulled out the weapon and was shot by a soldier, officials have confirmed. A solider is believed to have suffered a head injury.
Police source said the attacker was shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ before being gunned down.
Streets around the Louvre have been evacuated and France’s interior ministry branded the incident ‘serious’
French Prime Minister Bernard Cazeneuve has described the attack as ‘terrorist in nature.’
A second person has been arrested, but it is not known if they were linked to the attack
An estimated 1,250 people were inside the famous art gallery, home to the Mona Lisa, when the shooting happened. Pictures from inside the museum shows schoolchildren cowering during the emergency lockdown.
French President Francoise Hollande has praised security forces for their quick response.
President Trump was quick to respond, tweeting ‘A new radical Islamic terrorist has just attacked in Louvre Museum in Paris. Tourists were locked down. France on edge again. GET SMART U.S.’

Will we? Thank goodness we finally have a president who’s taking steps to actually protect his citizens.
