The Hill reports:
Far-right French presidential candidate Eric Zemmour said on Tuesday that former President Trump encouraged him to “stay true” to himself during a phone call this week.
“He told me to remain who I am, that the media would call me brutal but that what mattered was to stay true to myself,” Zemmour told reporters. “We share the same ideas, namely that the United States should remain the United States and France should remain France,” he added.
Aides reportedly said that Zemmour spoke with Trump for nearly 40 minutes Monday night, adding that the call centered on security, immigration and the U.S. and French economies.
