French far right can­di­date gives Trump gold star

Cape Breton Post - - WORLD -

PARIS — French far-right pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Marine Le Pen has noth­ing but praise for U.S. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump be­cause she thinks his ac­tions so far are good for France.

Le Pen, who is lead­ing in the lat­est opin­ion polls ahead of the spring elec­tion, told The As­so­ci­ated Press on Thurs­day that “my only frame­work is what is in the in­ter­est of France.”

She cred­ited Trump with a series of ac­com­plish­ments, in­clud­ing “the pro­mo­tion of a form of in­tel­li­gent pro­tec­tion­ism, of eco­nomic pa­tri­o­tism.” Le Pen says “I only have rea­son to re­joice” in Trump’s suc­cess and that “there is no in­ter­na­tional fall­out” so far from his pres­i­dency.
