The niece of French far right leader Marine Le Pen has reportedly accepted an invitation from US president elect Donald Trump's team to " work together".

Marion Maréchal-Le Pen, who is a member of the French National Front party lead by her aunt and established by her grandfather, tweeted about working with Trump's administration, although she did not go into specifics.

The far-right anti-immigration politician tweeted: "I answer yes to the invitation of Stephen Bannon, CEO of @realDonaldTrump presidential campaign, to work together."

Bannon, who joined the Republican's campaign team in August as part of a reshuffle that was intended to revamp Trump's then-flagging campaign team, was formerly one of the bosses of right-wing website Breitbart.

His appointment came alongside the promotion of strategist and pollster Kellyanne Conway to campaign manager, with both now rumoured to be considered for roles in Trump's administration.

However, the campaign team has not made any comment on why or indeed if it reached out to the far right Maréchal-Le Pen, or what a future working relationship with the 26-year-old politician would look like.

The president elect is currently choosing members of his team including chief of staff, a position for which Bannon is tipped to be under consideration.

Trump's business will be taken over by his children Donald jr, Eric and Ivanka, along with his other executives, while the three of his eldest children have also taken roles on his transition team.
