French far-right leader Marine Le Pen proposed changing the name of her party to the National Union Sunday as part of efforts to improve the party's image after she was re-elected for a third term as leader.The 49-year-old announced the proposed change at a party conference in northeast France, arguing that the party needed to drop its historic name, the National Front (FN), which has been used since 1972 when it was co-founded by her father Jean-Marie Le Pen.Le Pen won a historic 10 million votes as she lost to President Emmanuel Macron in last May's national election, but her score of 34 percent was lower than expected and she has admitted to mistakes during her campaign.Trump came close to endorsing Le Pen as she sought to defeat Macron last year.
