In an exclusive interview with CNN's Hala Gorani, Le Pen compared herself to Trump, observing that both of them have waged iconoclastic campaigns against their country's political "establishment."
"We are similar because we are not part of the establishment, we are not part of the system, and we do not depend on anybody and we don't take orders from anyone," she said.
Le Pen also went after Clinton, saying the former secretary of state would bring "war," "devastation" and "instability" as president.
"For France, anything is better than Hillary Clinton. Anything but Hillary Clinton. Because I think Hillary Clinton means war. Hillary Clinton means devastation. It means world instability."
