Yesterday, Nicholas Vinocur, in Politico, explained the emerging alliance between France’s Far Right and Donald Trump’s close personal friend from Breitbart News, Stephen Bannon.
And today, with associate solitary reporter Johanna Jones observing closely, Bannon made it official.
“When I become President-elect Trump’s White House Chief of Staff,” Bannon said, “Marion Maréchal-LePen, the youngest scion of France’s far right dynasty, will be my Chief Deputy.”
Maréchal-LePen is only 26 is and was elected to the French Parliament at the age of 22 as a representative of the National Front, France’s extreme right wing hyper nationalist political party. She is the niece of Marine LePen, the daughter of National Front founder Jean-Marie LePen.
Maréchal-LePen, however, told our Chief European associate solitary reporter, Larry Theis, that she is inclined to turn down Bannon’s offer so she can stay out of the swamp of Washington, especially after she learned that RNC Chairman Reince Priebus is likely to be named as Trump’s Chief of Staff. “Priebus is a soft Leftie compared to Bannon,” she said.
