Macron’s going to beef up NATO and the French military budget, bring back the draft, escalate the confrontation with Russia, put 10,000 new gendarmes on the street and make “changes” to the unemployment and pension systems. According to what I read, he was also the main author of the El Khomri labor law, which caused a revolt and helped his doomed predecessor’s historically low approval rating to finally break into the single digits.

The last round of the French election was actually quite similar to what happened in the US -voters were asked to choose between racism and World War 3- but the outcome was the opposite. Just as Trump has escalated the war(s) that he had talked about ending, though, I’m sure Macron will carry out the mass deportations and persecution of minorities that Le Pen was screaming for.
