French far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen cheered Ford Motor Co.'s decision to shift investment from Mexico to the U.S., saying Wednesday it is victory for the protectionist policies she champions.The National Front party leader, a top candidate in France's presidential election next spring, has already suggested that President-elect Donald Trump's victory could have a favorable impact on her own campaign, along with Britain's Brexit vote to leave the European Union.Le Pen wasn't the only French presidential candidate to lavish kudos on Trump for Ford's decision.The National Front's No. 2, Florian Philippot, said that no one company comes to mind but the French auto industry, in particular, outsources to third countries and the "same arguments, the same will, the same tools" used by Trump would be employed in a France run by the National Front.
