President Donald Trump is not backing far-right candidate Marine Le Pen in France's presidential election, White House chief of staff Reince Priebus said Sunday.
"No, not at all – he will support whoever the winner is," Priebus told NBC's "Meet The Press" with Chuck Todd. "We have a long term relationship that is historical with the French people and government – and, no matter who wins, that relationship will continue."
President Trump tweeted Sunday on the French election.
Earlier this week, President Trump tweeted the aftermath of a terrorist attack in Paris will impact the election.
Host Todd pressed Priebus on whether that was a veiled endorsement for Le Pen.
"No, I think he may have some opinions as far as who he thinks might win, but certainly doesn't have a preference," Priebus responded, adding, "Other than a right of center person that believes in free markets."
