BERLIN (Reuters) - German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble praised the economic program of French presidential contender Francois Fillon and said he hoped the conservative candidate's far-right rival Marine Le Pen would never become president.
Speaking at a foreign policy conference in Berlin on Tuesday, Schaeuble said Fillon's economic program had "strong plausibility" and could help France reach its true potential.
"To be clear, I hope that Mrs. Le Pen never becomes president in France," he added.
