We do not all favor Trump
Just a note to apologize on behalf of we thousands of Americans who deplore the unhinged antics of D. Trump. We consider ourselves friends and allys of the French people and ask the you not fault all of us for the folies of the few

Donald Trump Guest Of Honor ??
It is with great re-great that I write to express my disappointment that a country as well respected as France would invite Donald J Trump to be its Guest of Honor at any event and especially at the Bastille Day Celebration. Mr Trump was illegally elected President of the United States and is currently under investigation regarding his election. Trump has constantly disdained France and the French people. More importantly Trump has shown he has no honor or integrity. This is a very sad mistake and a sad day for France.

International Student!
I am studying in Chicago, I have family in France. I'm planning to go visit them for two months. I don't know if I have to go my home town embassy or France Embassy to get a visa?

And what other documents I will need to make the trip?

Thank you!
Je parle francais. Vous pouvez me repondre en Francais si ca vous arrange.
