Schaeuble praises Fillon, says hopes Le Pen never becomes French president


BERLIN German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble praised the economic programme of French presidential contender Francois Fillon and said he hoped the conservative candidate’s far-right rival Marine Le Pen would never become president.

Speaking at a foreign policy conference in Berlin on Tuesday, Schaeuble said Fillon’s economic programme had “strong plausibility” and could help France reach its true potential.

“To be clear, I hope that Mrs. Le Pen never becomes president in France,” he added.
