French President Macron Today Woke Up to a Nightmare of Trump’s Making

By

How humiliating this must be for the proud French leader.

While putting on a big smile and acting the part during public engagements, he’s been one of President Trump’s more vocal critics on the world stage.

But, wouldn’t you know it, new polls show that Trump is beating French President Emmanuel Macron in terms of popularity among his own people!

And this despite the fact that Trump started out VERY unpopular among the French.

Via Breitbart:

While the popularity of French President Emmanual Macron has seen a steady decline since he took power last year, polls have revealed a steady increase in popularity for U.S. President Donald Trump among the French people.

While President Trump is still viewed unfavourably by the majority of French people, the popularity of the American leader has steadily gained by around 16 percent per year since he took office in January of 2017, Le Figaro reports.

Initially, the U.S. leader’s unfavourability among French sat at 81 percent in November of 2017, but this has been reduced to 65 percent according to a new poll conducted by Odoxa and Dentsu Consulting for Le Figaro and broadcaster FranceInfo.

“At this rate (-16 points per year), the head of the White House will no longer be unpopular in France before the end of his term,” one pollster commented.

While only 51 percent of workers view Trump unfavourably, the figures among elites and the highly educated are starkly different, with an overwhelming 84 percent having an unfavourable opinion.

The figures come as President Macron has seen a huge dive in popularity, recently polling at a mere 21 percent approval rating, a record low in his presidential term.
