French Ambassador Makes Trump Look Like An Idiot After His Response To Notre Dame Fire

Longtime French diplomat Gérard Araud, who currently serves as France’s ambassador to the United States, ridiculed Donald Trump’s “plan” to save the Notre Dame cathedral from burning to the ground.

Araud spoke with CNN’s Jake Tapper in a phone interview on Monday following the tragic burning of the monumental building.

The French ambassador responded to Trump’s claim that “flying water tankers” would solve the problem.

“The fire is at 100 feet, and as was explained, it’s not possible to use water tankers, which could only worsen the situation of the building,” Araud explained.

Araud was referring to a tweet Trump wrote earlier in the day where he said:

“So horrible to watch the massive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it out. Must act quickly!”
