Trump talks with Eric Zemmour and encourages French presidential race

Paris, Feb 15 (Prensa Latina) The race for the French presidency on Tuesday incorporated an ingredient that was as unexpected as controversial, former United States President Donald Trump talked over the phone with far-right candidate Eric Zemmour.

According to sources from the polemicist’s team, quoted by BFM TV, the 40-minute phone call took place on Monday, and the media and immigration were on the agenda, two favorite issues for the US billionaire, who was the president of the United States from 2017 to January 2021.

“The media will think you are brutal. Never to change if you want to win. Keep your authenticity and courage,” Trump would have said to Zemmour, who in recent surveys reduced the rivals’ advantage and seems to have options in the April 10 elections to advance to the runoff scheduled two weeks later.
