Award-winning author Lionel Shriver: Trump 'stole my idea'

Award-winning American author and journalist Lionel Shriver (who's best known for her 2003 novel "We Need to Talk about Kevin") returns with her latest work "The Mandibles", a dystopian tale about family, money and survival. Shriver was recently in Paris to mark its French release and spoke to France 24’s Richelle Harrison Plesse about the book’s grim but eerily realistic storyline, the cultural appropriation debate and why she thinks US President Donald Trump "stole" her ideas.
