Reuters reported that the woman came close to Trump’s convoy before she was caught by the police. She had the words "fake peacemaker" scrawled across her chest. Trump was headed down the Champs-Élysées before a ceremony commemorating the end of World War I.
The radical feminist activist group Femen, which is based in Paris, shared that it backed the stunt. Femen often arranges shock protests, opposing sexism, racism, homophobia, and other social issues.
The Paris police said they have apprehended two people for the incident, according to Reuters.
The topless protester caps off another no-good week with Trump in office. After two huge wildfires forced thousands of homeowners to evacuate in California, the president has taken it upon himself yesterday to place the blame squarely on “gross mismanagement of the forests” and even threatened to withhold federal funds. He later tried to walk back his harsh statements by haphazardly sending condolences.
Trump's latest controversy comes days after GOP lost the House to the Democrats during midterm elections.
