Francois Hollande takes mickey out of Donald Trump on visit to Disneyland Paris

French president Francois Hollande used a visit to Disneyland Paris to hit back at US President Donald Trump for insulting the capital city.

Mr Hollande touted the attractiveness of the Paris resort as a tourist destination on Saturday during his visit which marked the 25th anniversary of its opening.

Without mentioning Mr Trump's name, he said: "I may send a special ticket to one of them, so that he at least comes to Euro Disney and understands what France is."

On Friday, Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo also used Disney to reject Mr Trump's comments that a friend of his no longer goes to the city as "Paris is no longer Paris".

Ms Hidalgo tweeted a photo of herself alongside Mickey and Minnie Mouse with Mr Trump's Twitter handle to celebrate the dynamism of Paris.
