Former President Donald Trump called French Eric Zemmour and is said to have told him to stay true to his beliefs while running for president.
Zemmour’s campaign reported the call to French media. According to Zemmour, trumpet told him that “never change if you want to win.”
Reports also say that the couple considered meeting at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, but opted to talk on the phone instead.
“He told me to stay who I am, that the media would call me a sadist but that it was important to stay true to myself,” Zemmour told reporters on Tuesday.
Experts often compare Zemmour’s candidacy in France to Trump’s 2016 presidential run. Reuters Note that Zemmour’s message aligns with Trump’s America First pledge when he declared “France needs to be saved from a downward spiral that he blames in large part on what he describes as unchecked immigration and growing influence of Islam on French society.”
Zemmour “holds some faith to incite racial hatred,” Reuters added.
Zemmour is said to have told Trump that both France and the US are now facing a “battle of civilization”.
Insiders Note that Zemmour “supported mass deportations, the construction of the European Union’s border wall, and called unaccompanied migrant children ‘bandits’, ‘murders’, and ‘gangsters’ rape’.” Zemmour also advocates closer Franco-Russian relations and less dependence on US
“We share the same ideas, which is that the United States should remain the United States and France should remain France,” he added.
Leader of National Rally Marine Le Pen, whom Zemmour is getting close to the polls, tried to downplay the call with Trump, saying, “I want to see him before he’s president. Honestly, that’s more fun than doing so afterwards. “
