At yesterday’s last French presidential debate, Marine Le Pen said this, “France will be led by a woman, either me or Angela Merkel.”
“France will be led by a woman, either me or Angela Merkel,” Marine Le Pen said last night as she clashed with the pro-EU candidate Emmanuel Macron in the final debate ahead of Sunday’s presidential run-off. Le Pen’s statement points to the long shadow of the German Chancellor that looms large over the establishment candidate Macron.Merkel, hoping to boost Macron’s chances, had endorsed him last week, praising his “consistently pro-European policy.” “I would be very pleased if Emmanuel Macron were to win, because he stands for consistently pro-European policy,” Merkel said in an interview last week, claiming that he will be a “strong president for France” and “his victory would be a good sign for the political center, whose strength we would like to maintain here in Germany, as well.”
France 24 reported the heated exchange of the final presidential debate:
National Front candidate Marine Le Pen came out swinging in her opening remarks, calling Macron “the candidate of wild globalisation, Uber-isation, precariousness, social brutality, the war of all against all”. From the start, she tarred the centrist former economy minister as an heir-in-waiting to unpopular outgoing Socialist President François Hollande. (…)
“In any case, France will be led by a woman: me or Madame Merkel,” she said in reference to Germany’s conservative chancellor. She dubbed Macron “indulgent with Islamist fundamentalists”.
Merkel understands fully well what a Le Pen Presidency would mean to the European Union and her September re-election bid. Le Pen does not need a successful ‘Frexit’ vote to put an end to the European Union. The Franco-German project will cease to exist the day France elects an anti-EU President.
Let’s hope that the French finally reverse the trend of being surrender monkeys and elect Le Pen. Read more and see the exchange at the above link.
