Pro-White French leader promises 'Brexit' for her country
The leader of one of France's most prominent far right party promised Saturday that she'd lead a United Kingdom-style exit from the European Union if she is elected president next year.
National Front's Marine Le Pen said at a campaign rally this weekend that she would represent the "France of the forgotten, the abandoned and the voiceless."
She also told voters that she would lead the charge to hold a referendum vote on whether France should leave the EU, according to the Associated Press.
"I will do it in France," she said, and lauded the U.K. politicians who had "the courage to choose their destiny" by choosing to exit the EU.
Le Pen made headlines this week for commenting on another presidential election.
Hillary Clinton would be a disaster not just for America, but for Europe and the rest of the world, Le Pen said this week in an interview with CNN.
She also compared her presidential campaign to the candidacy of GOP nominee Donald Trump, who she said she admires.
Like Trump, Le Pen said this week, she is trying to upend her country's political "establishment."
"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.
Clinton, on the other hand, is unacceptable in every way, Le Pen said.
"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," she said.
Le Pen's party has many similarities with the Trump campaign. It is pro-Brexit, pro-strict immigration reform and extremely wary of accepting refugees from Syria and other parts of the Middle East.
