Le Pen Says Brexit Isn't Disaster and France Should Be Next

Questioned over the FN's financing problems, Le Pen rounded on French bankers whom she said had denied any financing purely for political reasons, forcing the party to seek loans from foreign banks. She said the goal is to take back what she called "the four sovereignties": control of borders, economic policy, money and legislation. They are expected to return almost 340,000 euros to Europe's coffers. France should dump the euro and return to a national currency, though the exchange rate could be linked to some sort of European currency mechanism, Le Pen said.

She argued vehemently that the common euro currency had damaged France since its adoption in 1999 in place of the franc, along with many other European Union members who also gave up their national currencies.

Under her leadership, the FN has gone from strength to strength, topping the vote in France in European elections in 2014.

The anti-immigration, anti-EU Le Pen is seen as one of the top contenders for the French presidency, with polls routinely showing her making it to the run-off round in May against the conservative candidate Francois Fillon.

Like Donald Trump, she has warm ties to Vladimir Putin's Russian Federation.

Sketching her vision of a multipolar world, she said: 'I am a totally free woman'.

Unlike Britain, the U.S. or China she said France "are the idiots of worldwide trade, obliged to bear a currency that doesn't allow us to be competitive not only regarding countries outside the eurozone but inside".

Recall, the chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov said application Marine Le Pen of the Crimea in Russian Federation working off borrowed money.
