Trump Trolls are Targeting French Election

Buzzfeed published an article on January 24th that described how United States citizens that support Trump are now using fake social media accounts to influence the upcoming French election.  The article focuses on a chatroom called The Great Liberation of France.

Users in the Liberation chatroom want to create as much chaos on social media as possible to make right-wing candidate Marine Le Pen and her supporters in the National Front (FN) seem like the most legitimate voice in French politics.
