Marine Le Pen addresses European nationalists in Germany:
French presidential hopeful Marine Le Pen on Saturday told a European gathering of rightwing populists in Germany that a string of high-stakes elections in 2017 would blow a wind of change across the region.We're not going to win them all. But the trend is clear. Europe is waking up. The winning will continue. Europe will be great again. Europe will be European again.
Emboldened by the Brexit vote and Donald Trump's US presidential victory, the far-right National Front leader said voters in France, Germany and the Netherlands would be next to reject the status quo.
"2016 was the year the Anglo-Saxon world woke up. 2017, I am sure, the people of continental Europe will wake up," she told a cheering crowd at a conference hall in the western city of Koblenz, on the river Rhine.
"It's no longer a question of if, but when," she added in a speech that railed against migration, the euro and open borders.
