In her speech to launch the campaign for the presidential race, the leader of the National Front (NF) Marine Le Pen has said that France is under the threat of two totalitarianisms - economic globalization and Islamic fundamentalism.

“We do not want to live under the yoke of the threat of Islamic fundamentalism,” Marine Le Pen said in a statement at a conference in Lyon. “The places of Islamic preaching will be closed and the propagators of hate will be condemned and expelled.”

Le Pen also promised to hold a referendum similar to Brexit. Moreover, she questioned the value of NATO.

“If the EU does not submit, then I will ask the French to vote in the referendum to resign from this nightmare,” she said.
