A terrorist was shot and injured near one of the most iconic locations in France on Friday and President Donald Trump promptly responded on social media.
The machete-wielding man reportedly shouting “Allahu Akbar” was shot five times by a French soldier near the Louvre museum before he was able to enter a museum’s shopping mall, Reuters reported.
“It was an attack by a person … who represented a direct threat and whose actions suggested a terrorist context,” Paris police spokesman Michel Cadot told reporters.
The president used the attack to tell America to “get smart.”
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.

President Trump should issue a travel ban to countries that harbor Islamic terrorists. This would include France.
