A day before her photo was snapped in a low-key meeting at Trump Tower, far-right French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen held a fundraiser in the president-elect’s building.


The party was organized by Italian businessman George Lombardi, who lives in Trump Tower and served as an informal advisor to Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign.

"There were people [at the party] who were favorable to her, supporters, people who are friends of mine, entrepreneurs, at least three UN ambassadors, some political consultants and advisers," Lombardi told EUobserver.
