Trump declines to repeat criticisms of Paris

President Donald Trump is declining to repeat his criticism of Paris, which he frequently attributed to a friend named Jim.
The president has said previously that Jim used to visit Paris frequently but doesn’t anymore because of the threat from Islamic terrorism. Trump often indicated he agreed with that assessment.
Trump was asked during a news conference Thursday in Paris with French President Emmanuel Macron (eh-mahn-yoo-EHL’ mah-KROHN’) whether he still shares those views.
Trump instead said that Paris “is going to be just fine” mostly because France now has “a great” and “tough” president. Trump then joked to Macron that Macron better not him look bad.
The White House has declined to provide Jim’s last name or offer proof that he exists.
French President Emmanuel Macron, standing alongside U.S. President Donald Trump, says they have agreed to work toward a post-war roadmap for Syria and are largely in agreement in terms of security and stability in the Mideast. (July 13)
