When giving a keynote speech, the president said he considered the ban "unacceptable and unconstitutional."

He also said that he believed Islam could adjust to France's secularism.

Earlier this summer, burkinis were banned from municipal beaches in 15 French towns, including Nice that suffered from a terrorist attack in July that killed 84 people. Ban on hijab is a part of a ban on face covering in France that has been in force since 2010.
