It’s been on my mind to write a complementary piece about maverick French president Emmanuel Macron.
I’d better qualify that “maverick” word. It’s commonly believed that Macron was sponsored by the Rothschild family. If so, the maverick side of him may be fake. I have to bring up in his defense that he’s the only world leader who’s called for population control in Africa. Apparently, he sees the danger in a billion Africans flooding France over the next century.
My good feelings toward Macron are tempered by his address to a joint session of Congress earlier today.
WASHINGTON — French President Emmanuel Macron, in an address to a joint meeting of Congress on Wednesday, laid out a couple of key areas where he differs with President Donald Trump — the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate accords.
Watch for 21 seconds as Macron calls for a 21st century world order.
Macron warned that the United States and France must avoid isolationism and “closing the door to the world,” in the face of threats and called on the United States to create “a new breed of multilateralism” that stops the spread of nationalism.
“We can build the 21st Century world order, based on a new breed of multilateralism, based on a more effective, accountable and results-oriented multilateralism, a strong multilateralism,” Macron said.
Macron also called for the U.S. to be the world’s policeman.
I wonder if Trump is canceling his Macron Bromance now.
