Jean-Marie Le Pen says his daughter's promise to ditch the euro and the EU undermined her candidacy and she should have instead focused on "real problems, demographic problems, problems of mass immigration."
From The Telegraph:
Jean-Marie Le Pen said on Sunday evening that his daughter's bid for the presidency had been undermined by its promise to ditch the euro and hold a referendum on EU membership.Old people were afraid she would devalue their pensions.
"I think we must speak to France about the real problems, demographic problems, problems of mass immigration," he told RTL radio.Here's what he said on the eve of the election, via The Sunday Times:
[Jean-Marie Le Pen] said his daughter had fallen under the sway of advisers who had moved the anti-immigrant party to the left, promoting issues such as early retirement in order to win over socialist voters.
Le Pen lost the election in a landslide only garnering 10,637,120 votes to Macron's 20,703,694, which is 33.9% to 66.1%.
I don't understand French politics, but it seems odd to think a 39-year-old globalist banker that's married to a woman who could be his grandmother would win in a landslide.
According to the New York Times, "Many voters said they saw [Macron] as the lesser of two evils."
