French Far-Right Party Founder Endorses Trump

National Front founder Jean-Marie Le Pen has endorsed Donald Trump.

Le Pen, 87, announced his support on Twitter today, in a message that translates to "If I was American I would vote for Donald Trump...but may God protect him!"

Si j’étais américain, je voterais Donald TRUMP… Mais que Dieu le protège ! — Jean-Marie Le Pen (@lepenjm) February 27, 2016

He was formally expelled from the National Front for those comments in August 2015 following a feud with his daughter, current FN leader Marine Le Pen.
