Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Among Le Pen's not so popular proposed policies, I didn't mention this one, because her core voters are focused on immediate daily life issues like cost of living. But to win the election, Le Pen must enlarge her electorate beyond her core voters and to people who are also interested in European and international issues.

When questioned about her ties to Russia (her party contracted a loan with a Russian bank) and her relationship to Putin (2017: 'I support Putin's policies'), Le Pen argued for an alliance between Europe and Russia, "once the Ukraine war is over" she added, to ensure that Russia and China do not form an alliance of their own. Apparently, she didn't realize that ship has sailed already...
