Gen. Vallely: Le Pen, Nationalist Party Need to 'Rebrand'

Newsmax TV's "J.D. Hayworth on Newsmax TV"

Far-right politician Marine Le Pen and the National Party must completely "rebrand" if they are to have any future role in French politics, retired U.S. Army Gen. Paul Vallely told Newsmax TV.

"It looks like the older generation there is continuing with the progressive, liberal model in France," Vallely told "J.D. Hayworth on Newsmax TV," after Le Pen was soundly defeated by centrist Emmanuel Macron in the French presidential election.

"So, I think Le Pen and the National Party need to rebrand and completely come up with a populist type of theme that can push them into the future with much greater success."

Vallely, chair of the Legacy National Security Advisory Group, said he recently visited France and met with Le Pen and found a "very disgruntled, frustrated society."

"They're beholden now to [German Chancellor] Angela Merkel and the European Union," he told Hayworth. "So, it's not good for the French. They're going down a path I think is going to be more destructive to the society. . . . I think you're going to see more attacks by ISIS over there, radical Islamic cells."

Vallely said a populist strategy that will encompass the majority of the French population must be devised so the nation will see itself as an independent state again, one that will "be proud of their language, their heritage, their traditions."
