Among the former presidential candidates, Le Pen has the support of fellow eurosceptic Nicolas Dupont-Aignan of the “Debout La France” (France Stand Up) party, who she has named as her Prime Minister should she win.
“It's an historic day because we are putting France before personal and partisan interests,” said Dupont-Aignan, whose backing for Le Pen sparked the resignation of several Debout la France officials.
Across the Atlantic Ocean, Donald Trump has given what some are considering to be a tacit endorsement of Le Pen.
He said she was “strongest on borders, and she's the strongest on what's been going on in France”.
Very interesting election currently taking place in France.
