France's Le Pen set to field new name for far-right party

Steve Bannon tells National Front members in France history is on their side

Bannon, who served as US President Trump's strategist for seven months before the relationship deteriorated, crossed the Atlantic to embark upon a tour of Europe's right-wing parties.

"Let them call you racist". "Let them call you xenophobes".

"You recall the evening of the American election, the traditional medias were shocked. Wear it as a badge of honor", he told the crowd at the party congress. Le Pen had lost a contentious campaign for president of France a year ago to centrist Emmanuel Macron.

"I won't go to Lille because I don't want to become ... an accomplice to the assassination of the National Front that will be underway there", he told RTL radio.

"Let them call you racist". The outcome has boosted far-right movements across Europe and was seen as a victory for the forces that elected Trump and voter approval for Britain to leave the European Union. "And history is on our side".

He praised FN leader Marine Le Pen's vision of a political spectrum that pitched nationalists against globalists across the world.

Donald Trump's ex-chief strategist, Steve Bannon, has turned his gaze to European politics. But the two had a bitter falling out and Bannon was sacked last August, though he continued to speak with the president and tried to promote his "America First" agenda.

Head of the far-right National Front party Marine Le Pen attends a session of questions to the government at the French National Assembly in Paris on March 6, 2018.

Le Pen defended inviting Bannon to the meeting, saying it was important to listen to the man who was "the architect of Donald Trump's victory" and has written about globalization, protectionism and giving to regular people the power that "has been practically illegally captured by the elite".

Bannon spoke only about the 28-year-old neice at the joint news conference with Marechal-Le Pen.

Nintendo Direct: Luigi's Mansion Remake Coming To 3DS This Year
Luigi's map will be visible on the bottom screen of the 3DS and has been completely reworked from the ground up. It will release later this year and will include a boss rush mode, in addition to the beloved game.

Marechal-Le Pen, a Catholic hardliner and darling of the FN old guard withdrew from politics past year.

Le Pen was hoping that the National Front congress in Lille would help her reassert her authority, after her defeat to pro-Europe centrist Emmanuel Macron prompted criticism of her style and policies.

But party members credit Marine Le Pen with massively expanding the party's support, doubling its score from 5.5 million votes in the 2002 presidential election to 10.6 million, or nearly 34 per cent, in 2017.

"She is not simply a rising star on the right in France".

Le Pen is expected to make the proposal at a party congress in Lille on Sunday and members will vote on it by mail ballot. Jean-Marie Le Pen also is to be scratched from the party's books along with his title of honorary president-for-life, formally closing, if not ending, a bitter father-daughter feud.

If you asked her 10 years ago if she envisioned herself playing after the age of 30, Serena would have replied no. Navratilova further added that Serena's game style is something that will help her get back to the top.

Bannon met Marion, who temporarily withdrew from politics after her aunt's presidential election defeat last May, at the CPAC conservative conference in Maryland last month, where he said she was "absolutely electrifying".
