Marine Le Pen spotted at Trump Tower in NY

Marine Le Pen spotted at Trump Tower in NY”

On Thursday, the nationalist and anti-immigrant French politician Marine Le Pen, leader of France's National Front, chose to grab a coffee with some friends while she was in NY.

Le Pen was spotted with Louis Aliot, one of her party vice-presidents and reportedly Guido Lombardi, a big Trump backer. Sean Spicer, the incoming White House press secretary, said neither Trump nor anyone else from the transition team will meet with her.

Marine Le Pen has visited Trump Tower during an unannounced visit to NY.

Le Pen is expected to present her full presidential agenda during a convention on February 4.

Le Pen's campaign manager, David Rachline, had said earlier in Paris that Le Pen was on a "private" visit to NY and would not be meeting with the future United States president. The first round of the election is in April; she's now leading polls but is considered unlikely to win the subsequent two-way runoff election in May after the supporters of candidates defeated in the first round consolidates around her opponent.

But ClientEarth lawyer Alan Andrews warned that Londoners could not wait three years and that immediate action was needed. This legislation stipulates that the limit can only be broken 18 times per year.

However, asked whether she was there to meet Trump and whether she was there in a professional or personal capacity, she declined to answer. Le Pen is reportedly considering returning to Russian Federation to ask for more of le cash. Citizens for Trump later confirmed on its Facebook page that Lombardi had met with Le Pen. "We don't communicate about private visits".

However, a Trump aide told CNN that Le Pen was not meeting with Trump or any member of the president-elect's transition team. But maybe that's what she went to Trump Tower to do.

However her aides did make it clear that if Trump could spare a few minutes and extended an invitation to the National Front leader, then she would warmly accept it.

They were seen drinking coffee with two others in the basement of the landmark Trump Tower at around 11am on Thursday.

And perhaps her wish has come true. In a statement to the press pool, Trump spokesperson Hope Hicks said, in full: "She is not meeting with anyone from our team".
