Le Pen spotted at Trump Tower

New York: The far-right French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen visited Donald Trump’s headquarters but left without meeting the US president-elect or any of his staff, aides said on Friday.

The National Front leader, who has praised Mr Trump, was spotted having coffee at Trump Ice Cream Parlor on the lower-level lobby of Trump Tower.

Also sighted with Ms Le Pen was George “Guido” Lombardi, an Italian businessman who lives in Trump Tower and whom Politico described as Mr Trump’s “self-professed contact to Europe’s far-right parties.”

Asked by journalists if she was there to meet Mr Trump, Ms Le Pen refused to respond.
