Trump spoke about the impact of the Paris terrorist attack in French presidential election .But what is the real purpose’s Trump on his statement? What is the behind Trump’s stances about presidential election of France.
The answer is largely clear. Trump calls for Marine Le Pen and her victory in the presidential election in France. During the 2016 presidential election of US, Le Pen is one of the few European politicians who declared her support for Trump. Many experts and political analysts in Europe, believe that Le Pen is the French version of Trump.
In this regard, the last Trump’s comments about presidential election in France would be interpretable. Trump stated this sentences with the purpose of Le Pen’s victory in presidential election. Trump expected French citizens after the recent terrorist attack pay more attention to Le Pen’s anti-immigration slogans. There for, his tweet noticed as an encouragement for French to vote in a Le Pen’s favor.
In general, Trump wants the collapse of the European Union and the euro zone and the only one that can path the way and gain this goal for Trump, is Marine Le Pen and the National Front of France. Therefore. Trump not only noticed Marine Le Pen as political ally in Europe but also noticed her as an accelerating factor of EU collapse.
