French mayor vows to continue burkini ban: “If you don’t want to live the way we do, don’t come”

In an inflammatory statement, Cogolin warned: ‘If you don’t want to live the way we do, don’t come.’

Speaking to CNN, he said: ‘You have to behave in the way that people behave in the country that accepted you, and that is it.
