Market Analyst Who Called Trump Victory Sees Le Pen Winning in France

AP published a photo of Cheurfi and said it had obtained a police document showing that his family address, in the eastern Paris suburb of Chelles, was raided on Friday morning.

The Paris prosecutor said on Tuesday that a video linked to the two Frenchmen and intercepted in early April had featured a machine gun placed on a table as well as a newspaper which had one of the presidential candidates on the front page.

All 11 candidates ranging from centrist Emmanuel Macron, who is narrowly leading the field, to minnows like Philippe Poutou, a Ford factory mechanic polling at 1.5 percent, will be interviewed on France 2 television for 15 minutes each.

With four days until Sunday's first round of the presidential election, candidates blanketed the country ahead of the nail-biting election.

Le Pen would lose in the second round of voting against all three rival candidates.

“What is at stake in this election is the continuity of France as a free nation, our existence as a people, ” she said in February 2017.

It's hard to imagine Obama will be making a call to Marine Le Pen anytime soon.

Gaspard Flamant says he fears Le Pen will win the election's first-round vote.

The 26-year-old says, "We saw Trump, we saw Brexit.so I'm mistrustful".

That's ten points ahead of her support among the public at large, but lags well behind her following among so-called "blue collar" workers, which the same poll put at 44% - blunted, perhaps, by Le Pen's Euro-scepticism.

But he lost ground after being charged over accusations that he put his wife Penelope on the public payroll for a fictitious job as his parliamentary assistant, for which she was paid almost 700,000 euros ($750,000).

French conservative presidential candidate Francois Fillon cancels campaign event after shooting
Two French officials also told Associated Press that the attacker was detained in February for allegedly threatening police. Although many of these parties have existed for decades, they have been emboldened by Brexit and the election of U.S.

Socialist candidate Benoit Hamon promised that if he won France's presidency he would give asylum to Edward Snowden, the former U.S. National Security Agency contractor who has taken refuge in Moscow since revealing details of secret U.S. government eavesdropping programs in 2013.

In fact, most of the Euro's weakness in recent months has been largely due to anxiety surrounding the French Presidential election - which is being seen as the single biggest threat to the Eurozone itself due to the possibility that major candidates wish to take France out of the Euro.

French President Francois Hollande convened a meeting of the country's defense council Friday.

Feminist and social activists have strongly criticized Marine Le Pen for she represents the Far Right and anti-immigration values.

In 2016, 17 attacks were thwarted, and 420 individuals linked to terrorist networks were arrested in France thanks to operations of the intelligence services, according to then Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve.

He also wants France to quit North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

"My first measure as president will be to reinstate France's borders", she said this week.

Speaking during a televised debate around the time of Thursday's attack, Fillon said there was "no room for pursuing today or tomorrow an electoral campaign because first of all we have to demonstrate our solidarity with the police officers".

The far-right wing Le Pen, and the far-left wing Jean-Luc Melenchon are the focuses of the election due to their extreme political stances, and Jean-Luc Melenchon is the only candidate among the four whose share of vote saw an increase recently.

Jean-Luc Melenchon, who pipped Fillon in recent weeks, is a distant third to Le Pen and Macron.

While Fillon and Le Pen have pledged to confiscate the EU's environment stick, Emmanuel Macron is promising more carrot - in the form of a credit line worth €5 billion for green farming projects. Hamon, the Socialist, trailed in fifth.
