Europe must have 'firm' response to Trump: Hollande

AFP , Saturday 28 Jan 2017

French President Francois Hollande on Saturday urged Europe to be "firm" in its response to new US President Donald Trump, who has called Britain's exit from the bloc a "wonderful thing".

"When there are statements from the US president about Europe and when he talks about Brexit being the model for other countries, I think we should respond," he told reporters in Lisbon, adding Europe should engage in a "firm dialogue" with Washington. Hollande is scheduled to speak to Trump later Saturday.
