Trump telephonically encourages France’s far-right candidate Zemmour

Former US President Donald Trump called French far-right presidential candidate Eric Zemmour on Tuesday, telling him not to cave in to pressure, according to a senior official with Zemmour’s campaign.

The news: Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign is frequently mentioned as a model for former French talk show host Zemmour’s current campaign, despite the fact that Zemmour has been convicted of inciting racial hatred on multiple occasions. Zemmour claims that he is not racist.

  • According to Guillaume Peltier, vice-chairman of Zemmour’s “Reconquete” campaign, the chat took place late Monday and lasted “about 40 minutes.”
  • “Donald Trump told Eric Zemmour not to give in, hold firm, stay courageous”, said Peltier, adding the call was held “after Donald Trump’s office responded positively to our various requests.”
  • Trump’s representatives did not respond to requests for comment right away.
  • Although the talk was “cordial,” according to Randy Yaloz of the Republican Party’s foreign group in France, who was in the room during the call, Trump has made no decision to officially endorse Zemmour at this time.

What’s going on: Zemmour, like Trump, is attempting to position himself as an outsider to traditional political parties and the French political system, relying instead on his celebrity status and big social media following.

  • According to Peltier’s description of the encounter, Trump informed Zemmour that tenacity and perseverance are what make you win at the end of a campaign.
  • Zemmour is polling fourth and battling for the far-right electorate with Marine Le Pen of the Rassemblement National party, who is polling second.
  • Both hope to defeat President Emmanuel Macron in the April election.

When Le Pen visited Trump’s Manhattan company headquarters during her 2017 presidential campaign, she wanted to show off her proximity to the former US president, but she left quietly when no one greeted her.
