French Presidential Candidate Marine Le Pen to Make Official U.S. Tour Nov 2-5
Member of European Union Parliament and French Presidential Candidate Marine Le Pen will be making an official visit to the United States in order to find a common path to global financial stability and social progress. During this visit, Marine Le Pen will outline her economic and political vision for France. Her bold plan for the country includes a balanced budget amendment, resisting central bank pressure to devalue currency, and a restructuring or total elimination of the euro system, which puts countries like France in direct harm through the financial irresponsibility of other E.U. nations such as Greece.
Le Pen will be speaking at the National Press Club as part of their “Newsmaker” series of speakers that highlight political, social, and business leaders of high stature. The press conference will start at 6pm in the Bloomberg Room on the 13th Floor of the National Press Club (529 14th St. NW, Washington D.C.) All U.S. and international media are invited to attend.
In addition, Le Pen will stress the shared similarities of the problems that plague both the United States and France. Just as border security has come to the forefront of U.S. politics, the issue is just as prevalent in France, which has become the domicile of many illegal immigrants from North Africa. She will also discuss unemployment, labor, sensible financial regulations, and solutions for the common good.
While in Washington D.C., she will visit the National Holocaust Museum to pay her respects to the over six million Jews who unnecessarily lost their lives at the hands of Nazi Germany. Marine Le Pen stands with the nation of Israel and strongly repudiates Neo-Nazism, radical jihadists, and other efforts that deny Israel’s right to exist and thrive.
She will also take a tour of Capitol Hill meeting with congressional leaders, including Reps. Ron Paul (R-TX) and Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), to discuss Franco-American relations and economic policies.
Madame Le Pen will then head to New York for a diplomatic reception at the United Nations on November 3rd where she will meet with dignitaries from various UN member nations. Her U.S. tour will conclude with a stop in Palm Beach to meet with supporters and representatives of the Tea Party.
About Marine Le Pen: Marine is a member of the European Union Parliament and is the chairwoman of the Front National Party of France (FN). She is an attorney and the youngest daughter of French politician Jean-Marie Le Pen, former president of the FN and its honorary chairman. After assuming control of the FN in 2010, Le Pen ushered in a new era for the FN making the party more mainstream appealing not only to the political right but to all French who feel reform is needed in Paris. She has strongly repudiated Neo-Nazism and Radical Islam, and other extremist movements. A believer in French sovereignty and exceptionalism, she has advocated for reforms to decrease French liability for the financial mismanagement of other nations and to protect its own borders. Since declaring to run for President of France, she has seen a groundswell of grassroots support, which has catapulted her to the top tier of the race, including winning several major French polls against current President Nicholas Sarkozy.
