16 WORLD FRIDAY NOVEMBER 18 2016 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 Viva la Don? Or viva la dont PARIS: Donald Trumps election looms large over the race for president of Americas oldest ally France, where mainstream candidates all style themselves as uniquely qualified to prevent a similar upset by the far right. Right-wing candidates will take part in the last of three debates today, ahead of the first round this weekend of a primary to pick their nominee, who is in turn expected to win the Elysee Palace. Trumps accession to the White House -- and what it might mean for National Front (FN) leader Marine Le Pens chances -- is expected to feature prominently in their exchanges. The winner of the primary is tipped to go head-to-head for the presidency with Le Pen, who is polling at around 25-28 percent on the kind of nationalist, anti-immigration message that won over millions of US voters and convinced Britons to vote to exit the European Union. While the polls show Le Pen being defeated by the rightwing candidate in the second round of the election in May, she has gleefully brandished Trumps shock victory as proof that nothing is set in stone. Both former president Nicolas Sarkozy and ex-prime minister Alain Juppe claim to be the best placed to keep Le Pen out of power, in Sarkozys case by borrowing some of the FNs ideas on immigration and Islam, in Juppes by trying to unite the French against her. Sarkozy, who is trailing Juppe in the primary, has pledged to curb immigration and intern suspected Islamist radicals following a wave of jihadist attacks. Like Le Pen, Sarkozy saw the US result as a sign, seizing on Trumps victory as proof of a rejection of group-think. Hillary Clinton addresses the Children's Defense Fund's Beat the Odds celebration at the Newseum in Washington yesterday Picture: AP WASHINGTON: In her first public appearance since conceding to Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton yesterday said the US presidential vote has exposed deep divisions, in the greatest country in the world. Over the past week, a lot of people have asked themselves whether America is the country we thought it was, the former Democratic candidate told an evening benefit event in Washington. The divisions laid bare by this election run deep, but please listen to me when I say this: America is worth it. She was addressing donors and other guests at an event for the Childrens Defense Fund, a nonprofit advocacy group for underprivileged children. The event honored Clinton for her contributions to the organization, for which she first worked as a young lawyer in the 1970s before later serving as chair of the board of directors. I will admit coming here tonight wasnt the easiest thing for me, she told an auditorium of several hundred people. There have been a few times this past week when all I wanted to do is just to curl up with a good book or our dogs, and never leave the house again. Many in the audience were deeply disappointed about the results of the election, she said. Hillary addresses great divide Abe heads to New York TOKYO: Japans leader is heading to New York to meet US President-elect Donald Trump, where he is likely seek reassurances that Trump remains committed to the US-Japan security alliance.
