Marine Le Pen is a French politician who is the president of the National Front (FN), a national-conservative political party in France and one of its main political forces. Pen has been openly talking about the US presidential elections of 2016 and like many other European politicians who have ties with the United States (US) have their own endorsements and favouritism she too have her’s and this time she is endorsing Republican presidential candidate Donald J Trump.

Just to the run up to the elections global news media organisation, America’s Cable News Network (CNN) rushed to her for an interview where she explicitly made it clear that Hillary Clinton would bring ‘war’ and ‘devastation’.

On being questioned by CNN’s Hala Gorani, as to what she thinks of Donald Trump given that he wants to build a wall between the US and Mexico, ban all Muslims from entering America. “Here is my analysis, I believe this wall is symbolic, it is an image. What Donald Trump wants to do is controll immigration. I am not going to criticise him for that.

Whether she would vote for Donald Trump if she had a choice, to which Pen replied, “All I can say is for France, and its all I care about and for France anything is better than Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton means war, devastation, instability. She would be a disaster for my people. Leading us to world conflict, that would have heavy consequences. Say anything, but her.”
