Francois Hollande: Trump Makes Me ‘Want to Retch’

French President François Hollande said U.S. presidential nominee Donald Trump makes people want to throw up and that he’s concerned by how much the candidate could shift world politics, because “an American election is a world election.” In a meeting with the presidential press Tuesday, Hollande said he believed a Trump victory could affect France’s presidential election next spring. He added, “His excesses make you want to retch, even in the United States, especially when—as was Donald Trump’s case—he speaks ill of a soldier, of the memory of a soldier,” Hollande said, referring to the family of felled U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan, whose parents have engaged in a back-and-forth with the Republican nominee since they spoke at the DNC last week. “If the Americans choose Trump, that will have consequences,” he said.
