Even This Far-Right Leader Says She Wouldn't Go As Far As Donald Trump

“Seriously, have you ever heard me say something like that?"

Even Marine Le Pen, the leader of France's far-right National Front who once compared Muslims praying in the streets to the Nazi occupation, thinks Donald Trump has gone too far.

Asked in a television interview about Trump's proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the United States, Le Pen said the idea was too much.

“Seriously, have you ever heard me say something like that?" asked Le Pen, who has been accused of encouraging Islamophobia in France. “I defend all the French people in France, regardless of their origin, regardless of their religion.”

Trump's comments have been rebuked by leaders around the world, including British Prime Minister David Cameron and Canada's foreign minister. Several Republicans have also condemned Trump, but have stopped short of saying they wouldn't support him for president.
