Pauline Hanson backs Donald Trump's Mexican wall

SENATE candidate and One Nation Party leader Pauline Hanson has urged Americans to vote for Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump while promoting her similarities with him.

The controversial Ms Hanson praised the American real estate mogul turned political candidate while she was on the Fraser Coast on Monday.

"Of course I'd vote for him, yes," she declared when questioned about Mr Trump.

"He (Donald Trump) has got the Republicans, he's got the Democrats, he's got big business and the media against him, that's the best reason for the people to vote for him.

"The same thing has happened to me here in Australia."

Ms Hanson said like herself, Mr Trump was speaking out, despite being sometimes labelled as racist.

"Donald Trump is standing up and representing just grass roots Americans and good on him," she said.

"We need that independent representation and not led by political parties."

Ms Hanson praised Mr Trump's plans to "put a brick wall between Mexico and the states" as a way of controlling immigration.

"I'm not saying put a brick wall around Australia but I definitely want to have a full say in who we invite into our country," she said.

"We do need to cut back on immigration."
