Le Pen throws debate insults just like Trump
French presidential candidates Marine Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron faced off last night in a heated debate in need of trigger warnings for Americans still haunted by our own presidential debates. Le Pen's debating and insulting style is reminiscent of Trump.
- Le Pen: "Unlike you, I want a strong France in Europe."
- Trump: "I will make American great again."
Strength and control:
- Le Pen: "Not only you don't have any plan [to fight terrorism] but you are complacent towards Islamists.''
- Trump: "Secretary Clinton doesn't want to use a few words: Law and order."
