Donald Trump claims Paris terror will change voters' minds
France will head to the polls on Sunday to decide on a replacement for President Francois Hollande.
The European Union is on edge over what impact terror fears will have on voters – worried it will tip them toward anti-immigration parties, such as National Front.
After a terror attack on Thursday evening, that fear has grown.

The people of France will not take much more of this
The US President has come out to insist voters will show their anger at the polling station.
Mr Trump tweeted: “Another terrorist attack in Paris.
“The people of France will not take much more of this.
“Will have a big effect on presidential election.”
Officials are treating the attack as terror-related, and ISIS have claimed that the gunman was an “Islamic State fighter”.
The first round is expected to be dominated by right-wing Marine Le Pen and Independent Emmanuel Macron.
