    Paris would have to reconsider its vision of relationship with Washington and encourage a new US leadership, like Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, a member of the French National Front party told Sputnik on Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, French president Francois Hollande said in an interview with Les Echos that the election of Trump would be dangerous and would complicate relations between Europe and the United States.

    "Trump will return the love for the [national] flag to American citizens, the defense of family values. France must rethink its vision with this great country and encourage a renewal of American political life," Edouard Ferrand said.

    He added that years which incumbent US President Barack Obama had spent in office had been catastrophic for all those affected by his politics.

    The US presidential election is scheduled for November 8, 2016.
