Trudeau congratulates France's president-elect Macron on decisive win

President Donald Trump has called French President-elect Emmanuel Macron to congratulate him

Sylvie Goulard, a centrist member of the European Parliament who supports Macron, told the CNews channel on Monday that Macron would go to Berlin for his first trip outside France, but she added that he might first visit French troops posted overseas.

Split 50-50 between men and women, they'll have Macron's example for inspiration: Contesting his first election, he handily beat Le Pen with 66 percent of Sunday's vote and tore up France's political map.

"I will always be at his side", Hollande added.

That lack of support presaged a hard road ahead as Macron tries to build a legislative majority to push through his program.

Echoing Le Pen's concession speech, Nicolas Bay, the National Front's secretary-general, said that "a new divide is emerging: the patriots face the globalists". "I understand the anger, the anxiety, the doubts that a great part among us have also expressed".

The election was watched around the world for magnifying numerous broader tensions rippling through Western democracies, including the United States: populist anger at the political mainstream, economic insecurity among middle-class voters and rising resentment toward immigrants.

A poll on Sunday by Kantar-Sofres showed that En Marche could count on 24 percent of support in the first round on June 11th, just a hair's breadth ahead of Les Republicains at 22 percent and the National Front at 21 percent.

It was the first time Hollande and Macron appeared together in public since August 2016.

"We saw the emergence of very strong anticapitalist forces", said Gaspard Koenig, the director of the French think tank Generation Libre.

Marine Le Pen claimed over 11 million votes and has wiped out the Socialists and the Republicans. He conducted a courageous, pro-European campaign.

It was a valiant — if not foolish — decision, as McLeod received an penalty for instigating and was kicked out of the game. Five of their six defensemen made their way onto the scoresheet, combining for six total points (one goal, five assists).

Macron who defends an "open" France "faithful to its values" also promised that his country has to "take responsibility" and welcome refugees in cooperation with other European Union member states.

"Happy that the French chose a European future", European Commission head Jean-Claude Juncker said on Twitter.

The candidate will be France's youngest leader since Napoleon. There is something I can't figure out that didn't work.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters in Washington on May 8 that Trump called Macron earlier in the day to congratulate the French president-elect. Following rumors of an agreement with Melenchon, French spreads begun to rise, as it became clear that France could be facing a far-left versus a far-right contest.

"The citizens of France have trusted you with leading the country at a hard time for Europe and the whole world community. The growing threat of terrorism and violent extremism is accompanied by an escalation of local conflicts and the destabilisation of entire regions", Putin said in a congratulatory telegram released by the Kremlin. U.S. President Donald Trump called to congratulate Macron, while on the Kremlin website, Russian President Vladimir Putin urged Macron to "overcome mutual mistrust and unite to ensure global stability and security".

The president-elect's camp had been critical of Moscow in the run-up to Sunday's vote.

During the election campaign, he called for the creation of a budget and finance minister for the currency bloc, both ideas that are viewed with scepticism in Berlin.

Macron's foreign policy is expected to largely follow the course set by Hollande, a Socialist under whom Macron served as economy minister from 2014-16.

"There was a big issue of branding the Front National because the Front National, still the French do consider that the Front National is not a party like another one, I think that most French have still in their memories the provocation of the time of Jean-Marie Le Pen". But years of French economic underperformance, ambivalence about reforms and repeated violations of European Union fiscal rules have sapped German confidence in its neighbor, dimming prospects for a deal.
