Rome (AP) - The Hollywood star Richard Gere (69) has Italy's right-wing populist Interior Minister Matteo Salvini referred to as "Baby Trump".

The Lega boss has the same mentality as US President Donald Trump, said the US actor ("Pretty Woman") of the Italian newspaper "Corriere della Sera" (Monday). "He has the same ignorance in the radical sense, he uses fear and hate."

Gere was most recently on the Spanish rescue ship "Open Arms", which is still blocked from Italy with more than 100 migrants. Salvini had instructed him to take the migrants to Hollywood and house them "in his mansions".

"He's making a political case out of a humanitarian emergency," Gere said of Salvini. Nevertheless, he would like to meet him personally. "I am sure he is not what he is in public."
