US President Donald Trump has tweeted his reaction to the recent shooting at the famous Louvre in Paris, saying it shows the US needs to 'get smart'.

US President Donald Trump has tweeted his reaction to what appears to be a failed terror plot at the Louvre in Paris.

On Friday Trump tweeted: "A new radical Islamic terrorist has just attacked in Louvre Museum in Paris. Tourists were locked down. France on edge again. GET SMART U.S."

A French soldier shot and wounded a man armed with a machete and carrying two bags on his back as he tried to enter the world-renowned museum in what the government said appeared to have been a terrorist attack.

The man, who police said had shouted "Allahu akbar" (God is greatest) as he rushed towards the museum, remains alive but seriously wounded. His bags contained no explosives.
