For five years now, Macron has deliberately destroyed the unity of France. And, although he claimed he was going to unite the country, he will continue to divide it further. Once again, the French voted for him so that Marine Le Pen would not win. Otherwise, he would have received 28% of the vote. Macron is a farce
