There are numerous topics with which Emmanuel Macron is associated, including UK, EU, and euro. Most recently, Emmanuel Macron has been quoted saying: “Paid by the Republic, no.

It is convenient to see the Vichy regime as born of nothingness, returned to nothingness . Yes, it's convenient, but it is false. We cannot build pride upon a lie.feedback

Jul 14 2017 - French Election Results

The 14th of July 1789 was a day of fighting for freedom in France. But little by little over the years, it has become a day for partying and we have almost forgotten the reason for this fight. The attack on the 14th of July 2016 brutally reminded us of the price of our freedom.feedback

Jul 14 2017 - French Election Results

And that is why I wish to thank them, thank the United States for the choice it made 100 years ago.feedback

I respect the wish to preserve jobs, I think that's compatible with the Paris accord. There is no sudden and unexpected change today, otherwise we would have announced it, but there is the shared intention to continue discussing these issues.feedback

Jul 14 2017 - French election 2017

I disagree with the way the Paris agreement and its importance is being interpreted [by the US]. We talked about this disagreement, as we should among leaders. Should this get in the way of the discussions on all other subjects? Definitely not, under no circumstances. We share common views and goals on many other subjects.feedback

Jul 14 2017 - French election 2017

July 14 in Nice will never be the same, and it will never, in a certain way, be the same in France.feedback

Jul 13 2017 - French election 2017

What I like is the sense of duty, the sense of discretion that has taken our army to where it is today. And what I sometimes find hard to tolerate in certain sectors, I tolerate it even less when it comes to our military.feedback

Jul 13 2017 - French election 2017

The French people have shown their impatience with a political world made up of sterile quarrels and hollow ambitions in which we have lived up until now. One last question, for an American journalist.feedback

Jul 13 2017 - French Election Results

Today there are too many European standards and qualifications and sometimes there is competition among Europeans internationally. I can confirm this is a deep revolution but we are not afraid when they are carried out peacefully, in a structured way and over time.feedback

Should that have an impact on the discussions we're having on all other topics? No, absolutely not.feedback

Jul 13 2017 - French Election Results

I think it's always important not to interfere in others' domestic life.feedback

Jul 12 2017 - French Election Results

What our two countries share is stronger (than our differences), given our peoples and our histories and our values as well. So yes, there is a disagreement, like I said to President Trump, and then I said it publicly, because there is nothing to hide. That being said, it does not prevent us from cooperating in many fields.feedback

Jul 11 2017 - G20

Our world has never been so divided.feedback

Jul 11 2017 - French election 2017

Olympic values are our values. They are threatened, called into question by many today, so it's the best moment to defend them. I decided from the very beginning of my mandate to back this project and give the maximum to promote this candidature.feedback

Jul 11 2017 - French election 2017

I am here to convey a message that the French people are ready. I would not be here if they were not ready.feedback

Jul 03 2017 - Versailles

The building of Europe has been weakened by the spread of bureaucracy and by the growing scepticism that comes from it.feedback

Jul 03 2017 - Versailles

The French people are not driven by patient curiosity, but by an uncompromising demand. It is a profound transformation that they expect.feedback

Jul 03 2017 - Versailles

It is up to the president to outline the meaning of the five-year term…it's up to the prime minister to flesh it out.feedback

Jul 03 2017 - French Election Results

A smaller parliament, but strengthened in its means, is a parliament where work becomes more fluid, where parliamentarians can surround themselves with more trained and more numerous collaborators. It's a parliament that works better.feedback

Jul 03 2017 - French election 2017

I want all of those deep reforms that our institutions seriously need to be done within a year.feedback

Jul 03 2017 - French election 2017

It's about nothing less than reweaving, between French citizens and the republic, the relationship that has dissolved under the mechanical exercise of power. A contractual relationship. From efficiency, representativity and responsibility, I want the emergence of a contractual republic. Our democracy can only be nourished in action, and in our ability to change what is everyday, and real. It isn't five years of adjustments and half-measures that we have in front of us.feedback

Jul 03 2017 - French election 2017

And it is within each one of us that we must shut it up, day after day.feedback

Jul 03 2017 - French election 2017

Certainly, we've got to recognize the essential role of public service, and of our civil servants. But protecting the weakest doesn't mean transforming them into helpless minors. Every French person has a responsibility and a role to play in the conquests to come.feedback

Jul 02 2017 - French election 2017

These people are nothing. They are terrorists, thugs and assassins. And we will put all of our energies into eradicating them.feedback

Jun 29 2017 - G20

The relationship with the United States is a long-term one and it is deep. I believe we must continue an intense dialogue with the United States because of these ties which are historic and enduring.feedback

Jun 29 2017 - G20

The United States has announced it wants to withdraw from the Paris accord while we are facing the challenge of migration, while the fight against terrorism is a challenge affecting all our societies and where free trade is challenged by several countries. Today, we must defend those things that are common to us all.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - French Election Results

I call on them: Come and work here with us – to work together on concrete solutions for our climate, our environment. I can assure you, France will not give up the fight.feedback

Jun 27 2017 - French election 2017

In terms of the fight against terrorism, he has the same drive for efficiency that I do. I don't share some of his choices, above all on the climate issue.feedback

We already have two international [human rights] pacts ... The idea is to create a third, for a third generation of rights – environmental rights.feedback

Jun 25 2017 - French election 2017

As Jacques Delors said, for Europe we need a vision and a screwdriver. Unfortunately, we currently have a lot of screwdrivers but we are still lacking a vision.feedback

Jun 24 2017 - Brexit

What did Brexit play on? On workers from eastern Europe who came to take British jobs. The defenders of the European Union lost because the British lower middle classes said: 'Stop!feedback

Jun 24 2017 - United Nations

On the basis of this draft proposal, I pledge to act ...so that the work initiated continues, so that we reach a text, convince our partners, place these efforts under the aegis of the U.N ... and from September have the basis of a world environment pact.feedback

Jun 24 2017 - French election 2017

And now we deliver together to make the planet great again. Thank you.feedback

Jun 23 2017 - French Election Results

The partnership between France and Germany is the necessary condition for Europe to go forward. But it's not the only condition.feedback

Jun 23 2017 - French election 2017

There are issues where I'd like to advance together, the posted workers directive being one... I believe we need a profound reform of the balance. I will do it with respect for our partners.feedback

Jun 23 2017 - French Election Results

What's important is that we create successes. The risk is that in a few years, that doesn't happen. But that risk is really null.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - French Election Results

The conclusions that were adopted a few moments ago in defense are up to the job. We must consider the historic nature of this.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - Syria conflict

The real update I have done on this subject.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - Climate change

Europe is not a supermarket. Europe is a common destiny. It gets weaker when it allows its principles to be rejected. European countries that don't respect the rules have to draw all the political consequences.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - Syria conflict

The real change I've made on this question is that I haven't said the deposing of Bashar al-Assad is a prerequisite for everything. My line is clear: One, a total fight against terrorist groups. They are our enemies ... We need the cooperation of everyone to eradicate them, particularly Russia. Two, stability in Syria, because I don't want a failed state.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - French election 2017

Because democracy was born in Europe. The US likes freedom as much as we do, but it doesn't have our love for justice. Europe is the only place in the world where individual freedoms, the spirit of democracy and social justice are so closely joined. So the question now is: Will Europe succeed in defending the deep values it brought to the world for decades, or will it be wiped out by the rise in illiberal democracies and authoritarian regimes?feedback

Jun 21 2017 - French election 2017

France is not a country that you reform, it's a country that you transform, a country of revolution. So as long as it's possible not to reform, France doesn't do it. This time, people saw they were at the edge of a precipice and they reacted.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - Ukraine Crisis

I respect Vladimir Putin. I had an constructive exchange with him. We have real disagreements, on Ukraine in particular, but he has seen my position. I talked to him at length face to face about international issues as wells as defending NGOs and liberties in his country.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - French election 2017

The question is to know how to restore the dynamic and bring people on board. It's not just about pressing policy onto countries or people; you have to be able to bring them along with you, make them dream.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - French election 2017

That's why I have asked the government to engage the fundamental reforms which are essential for France. Our credibility, our efficiency, our strength is on the line.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - French election 2017

I will speak to everyone with respect but I won't compromise on European principles – on solidarity or democratic values. If Europe were to accept that, it would mean it's weak and had already ceased to exist.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - French election 2017

Fears are still there and what divides societies is still there. There are no magic solutions, it's a combat for every day.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - French election 2017

The key to get going again is a Europe that protects.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - Climate change

Anyone who thinks the fight against climate change is mere whim by middle-class liberals is deeply wrong.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - Syria conflict

Democracy isn't built from the outside without the people. France didn't take part in the Iraq war and that was right. And France was wrong to take part in the war in Libya in the way it did. What was the result of those interventions? Failed states where terrorist groups prospered. I don't want that in Syria. Three: I have red lines on chemical weapons and humanitarian corridors. I said it very clearly to Vladimir Putin. I will be uncompromising on that. So the use of chemical weapons will be met with a response, and even if France acts alone.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - French election 2017

My election, and my majority in parliament are not the end of something: they are a challenging beginning. It's the start of a French renaissance, and I hope a European one.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - French election 2017

Everywhere in our societies, the lower middle classes have started to doubt. We have to create a Europe that protects with a real defence policy and common security.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - French election 2017

When you look at the planet today, what do you see? A rise in illiberal democracies, and extremes in Europe, a reappearance of authoritarian regimes that question the vitality of democracy, and the US in part withdrawing from the world. That context is worsened by a rise in uncertainty and troubles – crises are growing in the Middle East and the Gulf, inequalities are growing everywhere in the world.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - French election 2017

National egotisms are slow poisons that bring about the weakening of democracies and a collective inability to rise up to our historic challenge. I know the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, is conscious of that.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - Chemical weapons

Yes. When you fix red-lines, if you don't know how to make sure they are respected, you're choosing to be weak. That's not my choice. If chemical weapons are used on the ground and we know how to find out their provencance, France will launch strikes to destroy the chemical weapons stocks.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - French election 2017

I want the discussions that have just started to be perfectly coordinated at a European level. I do not want bilateral discussions, because the interests of the EU must be preserved in the short, medium and long term.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - French election 2017

I want our cooperation to evolve. We absolutely must avoid creating new flashpoint migrant camps.feedback

Jun 18 2017 - French election 2017

I must tell you that I'm astonished to hear some commentators pretend or hope that we won't be able to have a majority.feedback

Jun 16 2017 - French election 2017

When an entrepreneur has too much success, he gets stigmatized and, in general, he gets taxed. This is over! I'm proud of you. Everywhere, women and men want to innovate. France is in the middle of becoming a nation of startups.feedback

Jun 16 2017 - French election 2017

We will drive through these transformation without delay. You do not wait, because your competitors do not wait.feedback

Jun 16 2017 - French Election Results

I wish to tell the United States: France believes in you. The world believes in you.feedback

Jun 15 2017 - French election 2017

I want France to attract new entrepreneurs, new researchers, and be the nation for innovation and start-ups.feedback

Jun 15 2017 - French election 2017

The bet of the future for us is to carry on educating our talents, taking our students to the highest levels of academic success. We must defend our educational model, we must help our students go further.feedback

Jun 15 2017 - French election 2017

I want this country to become a country of unicorns.feedback

Jun 14 2017 - Brexit

I am attached to a strict approach to Brexit: I respect the British vote but the worst thing would be a sort of weak EU vis-a-vis the British.feedback

Jun 14 2017 - Brexit

Of course there is always the possibility to reopen the door.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - Brexit

We have decided to go further on a concrete plan to reinforce the obligation of social media companies to remove content that promotes hate and terrorism online. Current measures are not enough. The door of course is still open as long as Brexit negotiations have not been concluded, but a sovereign decision to leave the EU has been taken and I respect that decision.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - French election 2017

The decision (to exit the EU) has been taken by the sovereign British people. I do respect that.feedback

Jun 11 2017 - French election 2017

That's what the country wants and that's what it deserves.feedback

Jun 11 2017 - French election 2017

I won't let anything stand in my way. Our civilization is at stake.feedback

Jun 11 2017 - French election 2017

That absence, is the figure of the king.feedback

Jun 11 2017 - French election 2017

I am a warrior. I am a fighter. I have a willingness to act that is consuming me.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - Homosexuality

As for me, I will be constantly vigilant on these issues, which are in keeping with our values.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - French Election Results

It's a heavy price that we have paid in these attacks.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - French Election Results

We have had the latest toll confirmed this morning, which is three people dead and eight injured on the French side.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - French Election Results

We are paying a heavy cost in these attacks.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - French Election Results

As far as French nationals are concerned, there have indeed been three fatalities and eight wounded. We are paying a heavy price in these attacks.feedback

Jun 04 2017 - French Election Results

In the wake of this new tragedy, France more than ever stands side by side with the United Kingdom. My thoughts are with the victims and their loved ones.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - French Election Results

Since you left, a lot of things have happened .feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Climate change

This decision can't and won't stop all those of us who feel obliged to protect the planet. On the contrary. We in Germany, Europe and the world will combine our forces more resolutely than ever to address and successfully tackle challenges for humanity such as climate change.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - French Election Results

I do respect this decision but I do think it is an actual mistake, both for the U.S. and for our planet. I reaffirm clearly that the Paris agreement remains irreversible and will be implemented not just by France but by all the other nations. Because wherever we live, whoever we are, we all share the same responsibility: Make our planet great again. France will put forward a concrete action plan to increase its attractiveness for researchers and companies in the ecological transition sector and will take initiatives notably in Europe and Africa on this subject.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - French Election Results

I can assure you, France will not give up the fight.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Climate change

If we do nothing, our children will know a world of migrations, of wars, of shortage.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Climate change

To all scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, responsible citizens who were disappointed by the decision of the president of the United States, I want to say that they will find in France a second home.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - French election 2017

Tonight the United States has turned its back on the world, but France will not turn its back on Americans.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - French Election Results

Tonight I wish to tell the United States: France believes in you. The world believes in you. We all share the same responsibility: [to] make our planet great again.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - French election 2017

I tell you firmly tonight: We will not renegotiate a less ambitious accord. There is no way. Don't be mistaken on climate; there is no plan B because there is no planet B.feedback

May 31 2017 - French Election Results

Donald Trump, the President of Turkey or the President of Russia are of a mindset of power relations, which doesn't bother me. I don't let anything go. That's how one makes oneself respected.feedback

May 30 2017 - French election 2017

I have always had an exemplary relationship with foreign journalists, but they have to be journalists. Russia Today and Sputnik were agents of influence and propaganda that spread falsehoods about me and my campaign.feedback

May 30 2017 - Chemical weapons

Failed states in that region of the world are a threat to our democracies and as we've seen in every case they have led to the growth of terrorist groups.feedback

May 29 2017 - Ukraine Crisis

It is essential to discuss with all parties present, in fact with all stakeholders in the Syrian conflict including the representatives of Mr. Bashir al-Assad.feedback

May 29 2017 - Daesh

During the campaign, Russia Today and Sputnik were agents of influence which on several occasions spread fake news about me personally and my campaign. They behaved like organs of influence, of propaganda and of lying propaganda.feedback

May 29 2017 - French election 2017

It's indispensable to talk to Russia because there are a number of international subjects that will not be resolved without a tough dialogue with them. I will be demanding in my exchanges with Russia.feedback

May 29 2017 - French election 2017

I want us to organize a democratic transition but also preserve a Syrian state.feedback

May 29 2017 - French election 2017

When press outlets spread defamatory untruths, they are no longer journalists, they are organs of influence. Russia Today and Sputnik were organs of influence during this campaign, which, on several occasions produced untruths about me and my campaign. I will not give an inch on this. Russia Today and Sputnik ... behaved as organs of influence, of propaganda, of lying propaganda. Big things are built over time. It was an exchange that was extremely frank, direct, with a lot of things that were said. We have disagreements, but at least we talked about them.feedback

May 29 2017 - Syria conflict

We must talk to Russia to change the framework for getting out of the military crisis in Syria and to build a much more collective and integrated inclusive political solution.feedback

May 29 2017 - French election 2017

It was serious that these foreign press organs–under whatever influence there may have been, I don't know–interfered by reporting serious falsehoods in a democratic campaign. I will give no ground at all to that.feedback

May 29 2017 - Syria conflict

The use of chemical weapons by anyone will be the object of reprisals and immediate retaliation on the part of France. When press organs sow defamatory untruths, they are no longer journalists. They are organs of influence. Russia Today and Sputnik have been organs of influence during this campaign, which on many occasions produced untruths about me and my campaign and so I determined that they had no place, I confirm it, in my headquarters. As for me, I will be constantly vigilant on these issues, which are in keeping with our values.feedback

May 28 2017 - French election 2017

My handshake with him, it wasn't innocent. It is not the alpha and the omega of a policy but a moment of truth. One must show that you won't make small concessions, even symbolic ones, but also not over-publicize things, either.feedback

May 27 2017 - Egypt

The debate during this G7 allowed us to advance, very clearly, in the struggle against terrorism. France has been hit in the last few years by terrorism as I will remind you the United Kingdom and Egypt in these past few days. The discussion was extremely rich on this subject and it allowed for the first time to sign a document resulting in a common commitment to fight terrorism on various fronts.feedback

May 27 2017 - Climate change

It is essential for international equilibrium and the reputation of America that it remains engaged with the Paris treaty. The G7 had shown issues such as climate change are not side issues that can be left to others. Trump was a good listener, a pragmatic guy and open to debate.feedback

May 25 2017 - French election 2017

Alongside this France that reforms, that transforms, that overhauls, we need a Europe that protects. When someone works in one country, for the same job, he must be paid the same salary.feedback

May 25 2017 - French election 2017

We have to work together, we have to be more ambitious.feedback

May 25 2017 - French election 2017

We discussed all subjects with President Trump. We had a long discussion, which was very frank. In the center of the discussion was pragamtism. We don't necessarily interpret things in the same way, but we were able to speak very frankly. It's not for me to make any physiologic comments. I met an effective and open partner. Europe has to be more ambitious, in the euro area in particular.feedback

May 25 2017 - French Election Results

Beyond solidarity, it's obviously European cooperation that we need to reinforce, in the field of intelligence, information sharing, the protection of our common borders.feedback

May 25 2017 - French election 2017

I respect the fact he placed under review the Paris agreement. My wish is that there should be no rushed decision from the United States of America.feedback

May 25 2017 - NATO

I'm very happy to be able to change many things together.feedback

May 22 2017 - French election 2017

I actually think that we did not hear the warnings sounded by Italy early enough. My wish is that we can move forward with real reform of the right to asylum in order to better protect the countries that are the most subjected to this migration pressure and to clarify our common rules.feedback

You cannot have a European Union which argues over every single decimal place on the issue of budgets with each country, and which, when you have an EU member which acts like Poland or Hungary on issues linked to universities and learning, or refugees, or fundamental values, decides to do nothing.feedback

I want to repeat here how important the European project is to me, and my will to work with the European institutions. I count on President Tusk and his leadership to go even further in this work of re-shaping and setting in motion again a European ambition.feedback

May 15 2017 - French Election Results

The French agenda will be an agenda of reform in the coming months, in economic, social and educational terms. Not because Europe requests it, but because France needs it. I will always be a frank, direct and constructive partner, because I think the success of our two countries is deeply linked, and that the whole success of Europe depends on that.feedback

I reassure you that not for a single second did I think that everything changed as if by magic on May 7. This will be slow work, demanding, but indispensable.

I have always wanted to return to public life. So when I spent nearly four years in the private sector and because I have some foresight, I made sure I had no conflict of interest and no practices of this kind at all, because I always said to myself that I wouldn't know how to explain it to our fellow citizens.

Your project consists of telling the French people, This person is horrible.' It's to cast dirt. It's to lead a campaign of lies and falsifications. Your project lives off fear and lies.

May 03 2017 - French Presidential Debate

What you are proposing is snake oil. I will lead a fight against Islamist terrorism at every level.

The question is not whether Mr. X or Y is going to be prime minister, what matters is her project. That's what a presidential election is all about – a project that's brought before the people.

Mrs Le Pen is using this situation to her political advantage, because what she does is stir up political activists in a parking lot.
