INSIDER: LE PEN MAY COPY TRUMP’S IMMIGRATION BAN IF ELECTED
National determination overriding unelected globalism
Front National leader Marine Le Pen will consider copying President Trump’s restrictions on immigration from terror-linked countries if elected president, says a top representative from Le Pen’s campaign.
Steve Briois, a leading member of France’s Front National party, was asked by reporters if Le Pen would consider implementing a similar policy to Trump’s if given the chance as president.
“Why not,” Briois said. “We are not living in the land of Care Bears anymore. We are in a horrible world. So from time to time, we must take authoritarian measures, even if they shock.”
Though Le Pen hasn’t commented directly on Trump’s new policy, she has offered him praise on several occasions and even pointed out the similarities of their campaigns.
“We are similar because we are not part of the establishment, we are not part of the system, and we do not depend on anybody and we don’t take orders from anyone,” she told CNN.
