Farage: Marine Le Pen Will Be French President In 2022
Brexit leader Nigel Farage said right-wing French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen will win that country's next election in 2022.
He correctly projected that the center-left candidate, Emmanuel Macron, would win Sunday's election, but that Le Pen would likely have a strong showing and garner 40 percent of the vote.
Farage criticized President Obama for cutting a video ad for Macron, who is seen as a globalist figure similar to the former president.
Obama said Macron "appeals to people's hopes, and not their fears," offering a subtle shot at Le Pen, who has drawn parallels to President Trump.
"En marche. Vive la France," he said.
"Globalists will stick together," Farage said, adding that the movement toward national democracy in the West is strengthening.
Farage said Macron is defending a "failing, crumbling" European Union.
"I do think Marine Le Pen will become the French president. It just may be in 2022 and not today," he said.
