If Marine Le Pen becomes President of France, Frexit will be the number one priority. She plans to blow up the European Union.
In an address before the EU Parliament this past week, Marine Le Pen forcefully and savagely attacked the policies of French President Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel over the EU’s “worsening migratory and economic problems”. The EU she says seeks to save itself “with blackmail, threats and intimidation”.
“German interests have caused the vassalization of the people of Europe,” she added.
The right-wing political leader is president of the National Front (FN), and also serves as a regional leader, and a member of the European Parliament.
Marine LePen has vowed to remove France from the “totalitarian” European Union that is crippling her country. Le Pen is currently in the lead in a three-way race for President of France.
Express.Co UK reports that she branded the EU a “totalitarian institution” and pledge to free a “weakened” France.
She believes France has been “enfeebled” and “cut off” from the world. “It’s time for us to put an end to this bureaucratic monster that is the European Union. European countries are bound together in many ways, and this mandatory coalition is destroying individual member states.”
No longer would she allow her country to be “diminished, isolated and wholly dependent on the EU,” she said. “The European Union is not the solution, it’s the problem.” EU Nationalists are paving the way for a “new” Europe, she said.
“I am thrilled to see that Europeans are speaking out against the Union, and calling for a Europe of Nations. We will build a better Europe, whether Mrs. Merkel and Mr. Schultz like it or not.”
She swore to form a new bloc of rebel nations.
In early January, she said she would first negotiate with the EU to re-establish France’s sovereignty.
If elected, Ms. Le Pen will negotiate or scrap EU treaties. She also pledged to withdraw from NATO.
Le Pen admires the US president’s “realism and desire for change”, and she hoped he would “reverse” Barack Obama’s interventionist policies.
The anti-EU candidate also said Russia had an “essential balancing role in keeping world peace” and had been “badly treated by the EU”.
One French famer says she would lift the EU “straightjacket”. of regulations and inaction by politicians from establishment parties for French farming’s deepest crisis since the Second World War.
The lower prices from cheaper imports have made it difficult to eke out a living.
Some recorded six-figure losses and many were driven into debt. More than 600 livestock farms went bankrupt — a record. On average, one farmer committed suicide every two days, according to France’s public health agency.
Meanwhile, European Union lawmakers will decide on Tuesday whether to lift her EU parliament immunity for tweeting pictures of Islamic State violence in 2015, an EU official said.
Le Pen is under investigation in France for three graphic images of IS executions she posted on Twitter in 2015, including the beheading of the United States journalist James Foley, the EU official told Reuters.
They will likely lift the immunity if past is prologue.
Polls say Le Pen should win the first of the two election rounds but lose in the runoff. They also show that her legal battles seem to have little effect on her loyal electorate.
