French far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen said that yesterday's London attacks proved the importance of protecting national borders and stepping up security measures, especially against terrorism.
Le Pen in a BFM TV and RMC radio interview on Thursday said that countries had to cooperate with each other on sharing intelligence information. Le Pen also said she favors closing down mosques with links to extremism and in taking out the French nationality of those who are holding out more than one passport who were guilty of committing attacks.
The National Front leader also said that the problem we have now has to do with "low-cost terrorism". She said that borders must be controlled.
Three French high school students were hurt in the London attack. France has also dealt with a number of terror attacks the past two years.
Le Pen has been doing well in the French polls. She is making a mark for her support of strong anti-immigrant policies. She has also said she shares the views and opinions of President Donald Trump, especially in giving top priority to the safety of their people. Le Pen is also pushing for France First, similar to Trump's America First.
Trump made it his top campaign promise to keep America safe from terrorism. He has put in place early on measures to protect the Americans starting with his executive order on a temporary travel ban on six countries. Trump is also serious in building a wall between the U.S. and Mexico to keep terrorists out.
Trump has spoken to Theresa May about the attacks. He gave his sympathies to the families of those killed and injured in the attack. Trump has also offered the full cooperation and support of the U.S. in responding to the Westminster attack.
Trump also praised the effective response of security forces and first responders.
