Obama wades into French election fight



Former President Barack Obama gently waded back into international politics on Thursday, talking by phone with French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron.
Macron is the center-left candidate, and the leading contender to stop far-right Marine Le Pen from winning in either Sunday's first round or the subsequent runoff.
Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis said "an endorsement was not the purpose of the call, as President Obama is not making any formal endorsement."
A source familiar said that Macron had sought the call. He's hoping to preserve France's pro-European Union bent, in line with Obama's vision of global politics — and opposed to President Donald Trump's. Le Pen had meetings in Trump Tower during the transition and has since traveled to Moscow to meet with Vladimir Putin.

Trump weighs in on French election
Flings more fear for a fellow xenophobe and Putin Pal Le Pen!


Two days before a French election that has Europe on edge, President Donald Trump weighed in Friday with a tweet that seemed to imply support for the controversial far-right populist Marine Le Pen.
"Another terrorist attack in Paris. The people of France will not take much more of this. Will have a big effect on presidential election!” Trump wrote.

Adding to the above post it could be argued that the RADICAL Muslims and home grown terrorists influenced by radicals are the xenophobes for attacking that which is foreign to them. Instead, you attack those standing up to them.
