Trump notes Strasbourg shooting to press for US border wallUS President Donald Trump pointed Wednesday to the mass shooting at a Christmas market in France to bolster his demands for funding to build a US border wall with Mexico. Trump’s tweet linking the issues came despite the fact that the suspect in Tuesday’s attack in Strasbourg, France, is a native of the city with a criminal past and extremist views. A French prosecutor said the gunman shouted “Allahu Akbar” — Arabic for “God is greatest” — before opening fire in a popular Christmas market in the city’s medieval center, killing two people, leaving a third brain-dead and wounding 12 others.
