Two weeks ago, Trump said the terrorist attacks in France would end up favoring far-right candidate Marine Le Pen, who represents the National Front. Trump was wrong.
France just overwhelmingly rejected the fear candidate in favor of candidate Emmanuel Macron, who was backed by former U.S. President Barack Obama.
The win was so one-sided that FN’s deputy leader was quoted as saying they might end up renaming their party even.
This is a big win for progressive values.
