Marine Le Pen, the leader of the French political conservative party ‘National Front’, praised Donald Trump on Wednesday and said that “for France, anything is better than Hillary Clinton.”

In an exclusive interview with CNN, Le Pen compared herself to Trump, observing that both of them have waged iconoclastic campaigns against their country’s political “establishment.”

“We are similar because we are not part of the establishment, we are not part of the system, and we do not depend on anybody and we don’t take orders from anyone,” she said.

Le Pen also voiced her opinions about Hillary Clinton, saying a Clinton presidency would bring “war,” “devastation” and “instability”.

“For France, anything is better than Hillary Clinton. Anything but Hillary Clinton. Because I think Hillary Clinton means war. Hillary Clinton means devastation. It means world instability.”

Le Pen said she supported Trump for president back in July in an interview with the French paper Le Parisien and similarly criticized Clinton at the time.

Like Trump, Le Pen has been a lightning rod for political controversy during her leadership of the National Front. The party, founded by her father, Jean-Marie Le Pen, is opposed to cross-border migration in the European Union, has warned against the dangers of accepting refugees from the Middle East and loudly cheered the result of the Brexit referendum.
