Donald Trump and Marine Le Pen setting the agenda

There’s an old political saying, “Whoever controls the agenda controls the solution.” The main political agenda in the United States and in France, immigration and Islamist terrorism, has largely been set by the exhortation and unexpected popularity of two aspirants for power:

Marine Le Pen leader of the National Front in France (FN), and most recently also her niece the 26 year old golden girl, Marion Marechal-Le Pen; and Donald Trump in the U.S. The duo of Le Pen and Trump have been making and benefiting from essentially populist appeals, more ideological in the case of Le Pen than Trump, to the electorate.
