France's far right National Front says it could copy Trump's travel ban
France's far right National Front party says if Marine Le Pen is elected president in May it would consider imposing a Donald Trump-like travel ban on citizens of certain Muslim countries.
National Front mayor Steeve Briois, who is a leading member of Le Pen's campaign team was asked whether his party would consider imposing the same ban that has barred citizens of seven Muslim countries from travelling to the US.
"Why not," he said. "We not living in the word of Care Bears anymore. We are in a horrible world," he told AFP.
"So from time to time we must take authoritarian measures, even if they shock," said the mayor of the northern town of Henin-Beaumont.
