As world leaders, famous personalities, and individuals took to social media to condemn Wednesday's deadly attacks on satirical French magazine Charlie Hebdo, U.S. tycoon Donald Trump generated criticism for his take on the tragedy.
My condolences and prayers to the victims of the terrorist attack in Paris.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 7, 2015
If the people so violently shot down in Paris had guns, at least they would have had a fighting chance.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 7, 2015
Isn’t it interesting that the tragedy in Paris took place in one of the toughest gun control countries in the world?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 7, 2015
Remember, when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 7, 2015
Donald Trump should run for president. He has the feckless moron vote, and that's a significant demographic. #DonaldTrump— Ed O'Meara (@edfomeara) January 8, 2015
The pen is mightier than the sword and the wig wearer is stupider than most #DonaldTrump— Dave Parkin (@BaggersDave) January 8, 2015
They shot two police officers! French police ARE armed. Did that save their lives? No. #DonaldTrump— Christian Guthier (@cguthier) January 8, 2015
