Firebrand French politician, Marine Le Pen, who leads the National Front party, not only compared herself to Donald Trump today, but she also said that “For France, anything is better than Hillary Clinton." In an interview with CNN, she characterized her program as at one with Trump’s in attacking the "establishment." The National Front leader is the daughter of party founder, Jean-Marie Le Pen.
 
"We are similar because we are not part of the establishment, we are not part of the system, and we do not depend on anybody and we don't take orders from anyone," she said.
 
As for Clinton, Le Pen theorized that her election would bring "war," "devastation" and "instability." "For France, anything is better than Hillary Clinton. Anything but Hillary Clinton. Because I think Hillary Clinton means war. Hillary Clinton means devastation. It means world instability."
 
Le Pen’s party has been often been called “nativist,” especially by socialist critics. She is a staunch defender of European traditions and of its borders, having warned against accepting migrants from outside the European Union, especially from the Middle East. She also supported the United Kingdom’s referendum on leaving the EU.
