Quotes from the news wire:
There's a strong rapport on the anti-jihadist war and that will continue because France, of course, is at the core of this, both on its territory and in the Middle East, and Trump -- to him, White House state dinner's very important. Donald Trump thinks there are terrorists everywhere, even with relatively few attacks in the US compared to Europe.
Emmanuel Macron doesn't come, of course, as the' president of Europe,' but if you look around in the EU and ask people in different countries -- and I travel in Europe quite a bit -- people don't see anybody else, but it's not easy to deal with Donald Trump and already Emmanuel Macron's the guy who speaks to Donald Trump the most, so that's an achievement. Emmanuel Macron does much better than( British Prime Minister) Theresa May and( German Chancellor) Angela Merkel.
Nobody would have gambled that a man with such a thin political résumé would have made it in less than two years,( defeating) a former prime minister and other luminaries in the French election, his movement, and they keep saying it's a movement and not a political party, it allows him to introduce himself as a maverick.
