Marine Le Pen has blasted Germany for championing the euro
The eurosceptic MEP has been outspoken in her criticism of the euro, claiming the currency has been used by Merkel as a way to manipulate other European nations and bring them to their knees for its own profit.
The Front National leader said: "The euro is a potent tool used by Germany to engage in permanent monetary dumping.

"It suits the Germans just fine but we unfortunate travelling companions cannot be subjected to this misery for ever to promote their happiness."
The eurosceptic MEP has promised to hold a referendum on whether to switch from the euro – which 19 member states of vastly differing economic wealth share – back to the traditional franc should she become the French president.
She said: "We can do nothing under the current structure in Europe, and the euro is the keystone. Not a single one of our measures will ever see the light of day.

"Look at what happened to the Greeks when they said no to austerity, as they were right to do: liquidity for the banks was cut off."
She urged other nations such as Italy, Spain and Greece to support her fight to conquer Germany's stranglehold on the Brussels bloc.
Le Pen said: "They may rally around France and agree to dismantle this structure together in an orderly way before it collapses in chaos."
