Trump inserts himself into French election

  |   Donald Trump

President Trump weighed in on French politics Friday, asserting on Twitter that "another terrorist attack" in Paris would "have a big effect on the presidential election!"

In his tweet, Trump said "the people of France will not take much more of this," referring to a deadly shootout on the Champs-Elysees, Paris's most famous avenue, Thursday night that claimed the life of a police officer.

Asked during a news briefing Friday about what the president meant by his tweet, White House press secretary Sean Spicer declined to shed light on Trump's preference in the French elections.

The French go to the polls on Sunday.
