The French presidential candidate said she had no intention of taking France out of the EU but applauded the UK for freeing itself from the “Brussels strait-jacket”.
She added: “The British got rid of the Brussels bureaucracy, which they could never bear, to move to an ambitious concept of global Britain.”

Le Pen will face Emmanuel Macron in the second round of the presidential election next week.
