"The situation is certainly less favorable than a year ago." This is not a big surprise for me – adds Emmanuel Macron, who is convinced that he can carry out his reforms and note that some of those already carried out are considered "completely impossible".
Metaphor of his pair with the situation of France. After interviewing journalist CNN Fareeda Zakaria about his meeting, at the age of 16, with Brigitte Macron, 24 years older than the older, the head of the state drew attention to the situation in the country. "You referred to my past, I spent many years without the respect of many people (…) even with people whom I loved, who did not fully understand what I was doing because it was sincere because I agreed with myself and never I did not stop, they recognized it and accepted it. " "So, personally, I strongly believe that the French are gradually recognizing (…) that we are doing what is best for the country," adds Emmanuel Macron.
