France says Trump should have shown 'decency' on Paris attacks anniversary

In five posts sent on the same day France marked the anniversary of the 2015 attacks that killed 130 people, Trump blasted the key U.S. ally over its near defeat to Germany in two world wars, its wine industry and President Emmanuel Macron's approval ratings.

When asked on Wednesday about the U.S. leader's Twitter posts, French government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux was critical.

"Yesterday was November 13, we were marking the murder of 130 of our people," Griveaux said. "So I'll reply in English: `common decency' would have been appropriate."
