French far-right presidential hopeful gives Trump gold star

French far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has nothing but praise for U.S. President Donald Trump because she thinks his actions so far are good for France.

Le Pen, who is leading in the latest opinion polls ahead of the spring election, told The Associated Press on Thursday that "my only framework is what is in the interest of France."

She credited Trump with a series of accomplishments, including "the promotion of a form of intelligent protectionism, of economic patriotism."

Le Pen says "I only have reason to rejoice" in Trump's success and that "there is no international fallout" so far from his presidency.
