Protesters intend to show Trump he's 'not welcome in Paris' on Bastille Day



President Trump is expected to visit Paris on Friday to celebrate France's national holiday, Bastille Day, but he may not get the welcome he expects.

French activists from the "Paris Against Trump" group announced a series of events Monday to be held during the holiday to send a strong message to Trump that he is "not welcome in Paris." One group is hosting a "No Trump Zone" event, which will feature music and dancing in the French capital.

"We are opposed to his positions on the climate crisis, his international politics against migrants, his sexist speeches and behavior, his Islamophobia and racist remarks, his military plans around the world and his neo-liberalism and capitalism," the group wrote on the event's Facebook page.

There will also be protests against French President Emmanuel Macron on Bastille Day. One planned demonstration is called "Macron and His Social War."

A study by the Pew Research Center last month found that 86 percent of people in France have "no confidence" in Trump.

Last year on Bastille Day, a terrorist drove a truck through holiday crowds in Nice, killing 86 people.

Some don't think the protests will cause a big stir.

Others suggested Trump will cancel his trip to Paris.
