Emmanuel Macron quotes

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 - Brexit

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 - Brexit

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 - Brexit

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 - Brexit

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 - Brexit

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 - Brexit

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 - Brexit

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 - Brexit

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 - Brexit

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 - Brexit

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 - Brexit

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 - Brexit

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 - Brexit

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

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

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

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

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

May 19 2017 - French Election Results

France has been determined to remain at your side and offer security, not only in Mali but in the Sahel region. We will continue to commit our forces and we will remain committed to a political and diplomatic roadmap, which I'm especially dedicated to.feedback

May 19 2017 - Refugees

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

May 18 2017 - French election 2017

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

May 15 2017 - French Election Results

What I know is that we have investments to make (in Europe), and so we have to work on investment mechanisms for the future.feedback

May 15 2017 - French election 2017

For us there are no such taboos. I will reform not because Europe asks for it, but because France needs it. I am not in favour of collectivising debts of the past. It leads to an irresponsible politics.feedback

May 15 2017 - French election 2017

We will need a more efficient, democratic and political Europe, because it is the instrument of our power and sovereignty.feedback

May 14 2017 - French election 2017

The challenge is not for me to bring together the left or bring together the right. The challenge is to bring together France.feedback

May 14 2017 - French election 2017

The division and fractures in our society must be overcome. I know that the French expect so much from me. Nothing will make me stop defending the higher interests of France and for working to reconcile the French.feedback

May 14 2017 - French election 2017

We will take all our responsibilities to provide, every time it's needed, a relevant response to big contemporary crises.feedback

May 14 2017 - French election 2017

The world and Europe need more than ever France, and a strong France, which speaks out loudly for freedom and solidarity.feedback

May 14 2017 - French election 2017

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. It will be up to me to convince the French that our country, which seems threatened by the sometimes contrary winds of the world, carries in its heart all the resources to be a nation of the first rank.feedback

May 14 2017 - Cannes Festival

The world and Europe need France now more than ever and they need a strong France with a sense of its own destiny. I will not reverse course on any of the commitments taken in front of the French people. From this very evening I will be at work. Long live the republic and long live France.feedback

May 13 2017 - French Election Results

You are the new faces of French politics ... it's the first promise kept.feedback

May 12 2017 - French Election Results

If I were 20 years older than my wife, nobody would have thought for a single second that I couldn't be an intimate partner. It's because she is 20 years older than me that lots of people say, This relationship can't be tenable, it can't be possible.feedback

May 12 2017 - French election 2017

We, being responsible people, are open to discussions. I am not closing any doors.feedback

May 12 2017 - French election 2017

There are those who want to stop us, who are ready to do anything.feedback

May 11 2017 - French Election Results

It's the British who will lose the most. The British are making a serious mistake over the long term.feedback

May 09 2017 - French election 2017

There is no easy solution to the migrant crisis. If there was one, it would have been found.feedback

May 08 2017 - French election 2017

The day this relationship unravels, migrants will no longer be in Calais.feedback

May 08 2017 - French election 2017

No religion is a problem in France today.feedback

May 08 2017 - Front National

I'm sorry, Madame Le Pen; France deserves better than you.feedback

May 08 2017 - French Election Results

This [parliamentary] majority for change is what the country wants and what it deserves.feedback

May 08 2017 - French Election Results

We need to do away with this political class, which is all too often made of men over 50 who never had a proper job. Being president of the Republic is not about loving politics, it's about taking care of the French.feedback

May 07 2017 - Front National

I'd like to say a word to those who voted for Ms Le Pen. Don't boo them. They expressed their anger, their distress, sometimes their convictions. I will do everything in the next five years to make sure that there is no longer any reason to vote for the extremes.feedback

May 07 2017 - French Election Results

Thank you for fighting with courage and perseverance for so many months. You've won. France has won.feedback

May 07 2017 - French Election Results

This majority for change is what I expect from you in six weeks. I'll need you again, and again.feedback

May 07 2017 - French Election Results

Over the next five years, which are just getting underway, my responsibility will be to calm fears, to bring us renewal with optimism, to rediscover our capacity to overcome which captures the essence of France better than anything.feedback

May 07 2017 - French Election Results

What we've done, for so many months, has no precedent, no equivalent. Everyone told us it was impossible, but they didn't know France.feedback

May 07 2017 - French Election Results

France has won! Everyone said it was impossible. But they do not know France! I will do everything in the five years to come so there is no more reason to vote for the extremes. I know the divisions in our nation that led some to extreme votes. I respect them. I know that this is not a blank check. I know about our disagreements. I will respect them.feedback

May 07 2017 - French Election Results

A new page in our long history is opening tonight. I want it to be one of hope and renewed confidence.feedback

What nourishes the National Front will be even more virulent.feedback

May 07 2017 - French Election Results

My responsibility will be to unite all the women and men ready to take on the tremendous challenges which are waiting for us, and to act. I will fight with all my power against the divisions that undermine us, and which are tearing us apart.feedback

May 05 2017 - Front National

Madame Le Pen speaks for no one. Madame Le Pen exploits anger and hatred. I'm not going to lament our democracy. In the second round, you choose the candidate who perhaps was not your first choice.feedback

May 05 2017 - French Presidential Debate

We will reduce the corporate tax rate to the European average of 25%.feedback

May 04 2017 - French Presidential Debate

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. So I've never had such an account.feedback

May 04 2017 - French Presidential Debate

There's one thing I'm embarrassed about. Not only am I a new candidate but there are no open judicial cases against me.feedback

May 04 2017 - French Presidential Debate

You are the heiress of a name, a political party, of a system, which has prospered for years and years off the back of the French people's anger.feedback

May 04 2017 - French Presidential Debate

I'm sorry, Madame Le Pen; France deserves better than you. What class!feedback

May 04 2017 - French Presidential Debate

I'm not planning to get involved in many elections now that I don't have to run for office again, but the French election is very important to the future of France and the values that we care so much about.feedback

May 04 2017 - French Presidential Debate

Your strategy is simply to say a lot of lies and say everything that is wrong in the country. But you are not proposing anything.feedback

May 03 2017 - French Presidential Debate

Who has been manipulating deep fear from the start? It is you. Who is playing with the fears of our fellow citizens on terrorism etc? It is you! Deep fear, the high priestess of fear, she is opposite me!feedback

May 03 2017 - French Presidential Debate

What you are proposing is snake oil. You are telling lies.feedback

May 03 2017 - French Presidential Debate

The trap they're setting for us, the one that you're proposing, is civil war. What the terrorists expect is division among ourselves. What the terrorists expect is heinous speech.feedback

May 03 2017 - French Presidential Debate

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. That's what sustains you. That's what sustained your father for decades. That's what nourished the extreme right and that is what created you. You are its parasite.feedback

May 03 2017 - French Presidential Debate

What you are proposing is snake oil. I will lead a fight against Islamist terrorism at every level. But what they are wanting, the trap they are holding out for us, is the one that you offer - civil war. Your strategy is simply to tell a lot of lies and just to say what isn't going right in the country.feedback

May 03 2017 - European Commission

The Contract for Difference has already been accepted by the European Commission, so therefore this mechanism does not pose a problem from a legal point of view.feedback

May 03 2017 - French Presidential Debate

You lie all the time. You propose nothing.feedback

May 03 2017 - Front National

I want to get down to hand to hand combat, to get to the bottom of issues to show that her ideas are false solutions. I will not go for insults or shortcuts…I listened to Ms Le Pen yesterday; that's all she does.feedback

May 03 2017 - French Presidential Debate

I am not going to employ invective. I am not going to use cliches or insults. I'll use hand-to-hand fighting to demonstrate that her ideas represent false solutions.feedback

May 02 2017 - Front National

We all know who Le Pen's allies are, the regimes of Orban, Kaczynski, Putin. These aren't the regimes with an open and free democracy. Every day they break many democratic freedoms.feedback

May 02 2017 - French Presidential Debate

We all know who Le Pen's allies are: the regimes of (Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor) Orban, Kaczynski, Putin. These aren't regimes with an open and free democracy. Every day they break many democratic freedoms.feedback

May 01 2017 - Glyphosate

Did you hear what the leader of the extreme right said a few weeks ago about the Vel d'Hiv roundup? The roots are well and truly alive and established. I won't forget anything and I'll fight until the very last second, not only against her programme, but against her idea of democracy and what constitutes the French Republic. My views are not the same.feedback

May 01 2017 - French Election Results

I am fully aware that on May 7, I'm doing more than promoting a political project – I'm fighting for the Republic and for a free democracy.feedback

May 01 2017 - French Presidential Debate

Don't boo her, fight her! Go and convince (others), make her lose next Sunday.feedback

May 01 2017 - French Election Results

I will fight up until the very last second not only against her program but also her idea of what constitutes democracy and the French Republic.feedback

May 01 2017 - Populism

I'm a pro-European, I defended constantly during this election the European idea and European policies because I believe it's extremely important for French people and for the place of our country in globalization.feedback

May 01 2017 - French Election Results

Yes, there is anger. Yes, this anger has found an outlet in the National Front vote, but under no circumstances does the National Front offer any answers to the causes of this anger.feedback

May 01 2017 - French Election Results

I will not forget anything and I will fight to the last second, not only against her project but against the idea she has of democracy and the nation.feedback

May 01 2017 - French Election Results

I don't want to do so, because the day after, we will have a 'Frexit.feedback

Apr 30 2017 - French Election Results

Today we have a double duty: the duty of remembrance and the duty of making sure this does not happen again, by refusing the moral weakness that can tempt some; the relativism that can tempt others; and the negationism, in which some have taken refuge.feedback

Apr 30 2017 - French Election Results

Globalization can be a great opportunity.feedback

Apr 30 2017 - Front National

We have a duty today to their memory. Does she want us to no longer commemorate? Madame Le Pen and her people can complain, but I will not back down.feedback

Apr 29 2017 - Greece

I do not want my generation to be the one responsible for Greece exiting Europe.feedback

Apr 29 2017 - French Election Results

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. Madame Le Pen's project is a dangerous one for the country and for French rurality because it's about closing borders, and ultimately shrinking.feedback

Apr 29 2017 - French Election Results

There is a reactionary, nationalist, anti-European right-wing that has structured itself and which, today, is an important political force. Facing it is a progressive bloc that I represent, and which defends France.feedback

For those who want to spread the rumor that I'm deceitful, that I have hidden lives … not only is it unpleasant for Brigitte, but I promise that as from morning to night she shares my whole life with me.feedback

We don't have a classic family, that's an undeniable reality.feedback

Apr 29 2017 - French Election Results

Every Friday, for several months, we spent several hours working on a play together. Once the play was written, we decided to produce it together. We chatted about everything. The writing became an excuse. I felt that we had always known each other.feedback

Apr 28 2017 - French Election Results

To forget ... is to take the risk of repeating history and these errors.feedback

Apr 28 2017 - Refugees

In the next three months after I am elected, there will be a decision on Poland. 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

Apr 28 2017 - French Election Results

When the rights and values of the European Union are not respected, I want sanctions to be taken.feedback

Apr 28 2017 - French Election Results

I do not propose to reform France; I propose to transform it at its deepest level.feedback

Apr 28 2017 - French Election Results

I want to put the Le Touquet border deal back on the table. It must be renegotiated, especially the parts that deal with the fate of isolated child migrants. There is no easy solution to the migrant crisis. If there was one, it would have been found.feedback

Apr 28 2017 - French Election Results

Have a nice trip. Leaving Europe as she proposes is the end of French fishing.feedback

Apr 27 2017 - Front National

Madame Le Pen has gone fishing. Have a nice trip! Think about it.feedback

Apr 26 2017 - Front National

Mrs Le Pen is using this situation to her political advantage, because what she does is stir up political activists in a parking lot. I want everyone who lives and works in this region to know: if she's elected, this factory will shut down. And I can name dozens more in this case. That's what makes us different, in our method and in substance.feedback

Apr 26 2017 - Front National

Madame Le Pen is using the situation for political ends, stirring up crowds on a parking lot. If she's elected, this company will close.feedback

Apr 26 2017 - French Election Results

I won't lie to you. There is no miracle recipe.feedback

Apr 26 2017 - French Election Results

Faced with this threat, facing those who hate the Republic and create disorder and hatred, choose a camp. I need your vote. Your vote is not a blank check. If you don't speak to employees' representatives and engage in direct democracy, using invective or false promises, you don't solve any of the country's problems. The closure of borders is a promise made of lies.feedback

Apr 25 2017 - Front National

Some have woken up with a hangover because Le Pen is there. I haven't. Nothing is won ... I have never considered one minute that it was won. My battle is to defeat Marine Le Pen. When I hear Madame Le Pen's slogans, her tones and her gestures, I see a lot more brutality on her side than mine. The brutal project, the project of hate and rejection is not on my side.feedback

Apr 24 2017 - French Election Results

Whatever you do, I will marry you! She helped me believe in my political destiny.feedback

Apr 24 2017 - French Election Results

It takes the whole Europe breakup risk off the table, and what that means is you don't have to worry about a financial crisis, a global recession, and that's positive for equities around the world.feedback

Apr 24 2017 - French Election Results

We will protect individuals but we must be a land of freedom for innovation and creation, because that's in our DNA.feedback

Apr 24 2017 - Front National

Nationalism is war. I know it. I come from a region that is full of graveyards. The trap you are falling into, Madame Le Pen, with your provocations, is to divide society. It's truly barbarous and it's part of a past that we need to confront by apologising to those against whom we committed these acts.feedback

Apr 24 2017 - French Election Results

I want to build a majority for a government and for a new transformation. It will be made up of new faces and new talent in which every man and woman can have a place.feedback

Apr 24 2017 - French Election Results

She's been in the political system for 30 years. She inherited her father's party and we will undoubtedly have Le Pens running for the next 20 years, because after we had the father, we have the daughter and we will doubtless have the niece. So she is in a truly bad position to be talking about the elites and the people.feedback

Apr 24 2017 - French Election Results

The challenge from tonight is not to go and vote against whoever it might be; the challenge is to decide to break completely with a system that has been incapable of dealing with our country's problems for more than 30 years. They're taking the French for idiots. The French are consistent. That's why, six weeks later, they will give us a majority to govern and legislate.feedback

Apr 24 2017 - French Election Results

My dear fellow citizens, there are not many Frances, there is only one. France, ours. France of patriots in a Europe that protects and that we will have to renew. The task will be immense. I'm ready, by your side. The fight to be worthy to lead our country begins tonight, and we will win it. Long live the Republic, long live France.feedback

If you haven't understood that it's my pleasure tonight to invite out my secretaries, my security guards, then you haven't understood anything about life.feedback

Apr 24 2017 - French Election Results

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. I don't want a tailormade approach where the British have the best of two worlds. That will be too big an incentive for others to leave and kill the European idea, which is based on shared responsibilities. The best trade agreement for Britain ... is called membership of the EU.feedback

Apr 23 2017 - French Election Results

The power of the momentum behind me will be the key to my ability to lead and govern.feedback

Apr 21 2017 - French election 2017

I think we must once and for all have a spirit of responsibility at this extreme time and not give in to panic and not allow it to be exploited, which some might try to do.feedback

Apr 21 2017 - Front National

There's no such thing as zero risk. Anyone who pretends (otherwise) is both irresponsible and deceitful.feedback

We must not yield to fear today. This is what our assailants are waiting for, and it's their trap.feedback

Apr 21 2017 - Champs-Elysees shooting 2017

She won't be able to protect our citizens.feedback

Apr 21 2017 - French Election Results

Don't yield to fear, don't yield to division and intimidation. Our generation must rise to this challenge. Our moral challenge, today and for the years to come is, on the one hand, to not divide us, but it's also to prepare our future. What they want is a collapse in morality, what they want is to watch us fall into ruin. I will not give in to this, do not play with fear.feedback

Apr 21 2017 - French Election Results

In such circumstances, the role of the president of the Republic as the army chief and guardian of our institutions is to protect the French. I am ready. What our attackers want is death, symbolism, to sow panic (and) to disturb a democratic process, which is the presidential election. No one knows. She won't be able to protect our citizens.feedback

A vigorous offensive will be taken to fight Islamic radicalisation, especially on the internet.feedback

It was her and my grandfather who for years and years led me to live in Bagnères-de-Bigorre, to walk there, to run there, to learn how to bicycle, to ski, to be rooted in our country.feedback

Since only the radicalized youth goes to vote, the FN wins.feedback

Apr 18 2017 - French election 2017

This event serves as reminders that the terrorist threat is still very high on our territory.feedback

Apr 17 2017

The world around us is changing. War, terrorist threat, the uncertainty on the other side of the ocean (a reference to Trump), the threat at our borders of several authoritarian regimes. Yes, we will have to be strong, uncompromising.feedback

Apr 17 2017 - Oil

Some would like France to become Cuba without the sun or Venezuela without the oil.feedback

Apr 17 2017

I've always paid all my tax in France and I've always had all may accounts in France. It's false, totally false. I've heard it all, that I have a hidden inheritance, that I've got offshore accounts. All sorts of things. Why? Because in this campaign there are two candidates with their own real legal problems.feedback

Apr 17 2017 - French election 2017

Some want us to believe ... that France will isolate itself. We feel everywhere the temptation of barbarism ready to surge in other guises.feedback

Apr 17 2017

Everywhere, we feel the temptation of barbarism ready to surge in other guises ... No, we will not let them do it. I've heard it all, that I have a secret hidden inheritance, that I've got offshore accounts. Why? Because in this campaign there are two candidates with their own real legal problems … It's all false, totally false.feedback

Apr 12 2017 - French election 2017

We are the only binding force today for the country because we are the only ones who don't want to break it up.feedback

Apr 10 2017 - Terrorism

If I get elected, France will as of this summer undertake a major initiative aimed at the big internet companies so that they accept a legal framework for requisitions of encrypted services in the context of counter-terrorism efforts.feedback

Apr 10 2017 - Front National

Some had forgotten that Marine Le Pen is the daughter of Jean-Marie Le Pen.feedback

Apr 05 2017 - Front National

Nationalism is war. I know it. I come from a region that is full of graveyards. Sorry to tell you this, Madame Le Pen, but you are saying the same lies that we've heard from your father for 40 years.feedback

Apr 04 2017 - Front National

Madame Le Pen, sorry to tell you, but you are using lies we hear for 40 years and we were hearing in your father's mouth.feedback

Apr 01 2017

I want us to kick far from this campaign and from the country the party of hatred and contempt and all those who make us so ashamed. We are going to be ahead in the first round and we're going to beat them.feedback

I shall be the guarantor of new faces, new ways of doing things.feedback

Mar 29 2017 - Christian Democratic Union of Germany

The question is not to punish the UK for a vote made by British people. My deep wish is to have Britain with the EU in another relationship … [But] my priority will be to protect the European Union, the interests of the European Union, and the interests of European citizens.feedback

Mar 28 2017

I wish for women and men who come from the private sector, who have competences in this sphere and who agree to put these competences for a few years at the service of the public.feedback

Mar 27 2017

My first response is a call for calm, because blocking the airport runways and takeoffs – and sometimes even blocking off the function of the island itself is not the response to the situation.feedback

Mar 21 2017 - Front National

No, no, please, play nice Mrs Le Pen, I'm not putting words into your mouth and I don't need a ventriloquist. I can assure you everything's fine and clear for me and when I have something to say, I'll say it clearly, as I always do.feedback

Mar 21 2017

Not behind, not hidden ... she will be by my side. Since she shares my life from morning to night, her only question is how, physically, I would manage.feedback

I take the engagement to not be bought by anyone (…) The financing of my campaign is transparent.feedback

Mar 21 2017

Mar 21 2017

The traditional parties, those that have for decades failed to solve yesterday's problems, won't be able to do it tomorrow either.feedback

Mar 21 2017 - Islam

The trap you are falling into, Mrs Le Pen, through your provocations, is dividing society. It is making enemies of the Republic out of the more than four million French men and women whose religion is Islam, the vast majority of whom are absolutely not leading ethnically separate lives but instead living in our Republic. Well I won't do that!feedback

Mar 21 2017

I don't need a ventriloquist. You are lying (to voters) by twisting the truth.feedback

Mar 21 2017

Unlike you, I propose to have a strong France inside Europe.feedback

Mar 21 2017

We're going to start seeing the results (of their departure). Because it's other Conservatives who are going to have to deal with it, and by the way we're going to have to be incredibly rigorous (in negotiating with Britain about its exit by not giving them any undue concessions).feedback

Mar 21 2017

Those who were responsible for Brexit, who said everything is possible and it will be wonderful have all scampered off. They have all gone into hiding.feedback

Mar 21 2017 - Front National

I'm not putting words in your mouth. I don't need a ventriloquist. The trap you are falling into, Madame Le Pen, with your provocations, is to divide society.feedback

I don't need a ventriloquist. When I have something to say, I say it clearly. You'd be bored without me.feedback

Mar 19 2017

I want each young French person to be able to experience military life, even briefly.feedback

Mar 16 2017

I insisted during my discussion with the (German) Chancellor about my willingness to reform our labor market, to reform our vocational training system, to reform our education and to deliver a sensible fiscal trend. Now the key question is to deliver (proposed reforms) so for me is first to be elected, and second to deliver but for sure, for me one of the key elements was to repeat my willingness to restore a strong confidence between France and Germany and to build on this basis a new pro-growth environment and a broader cooperation between our two countries and at the European scale.feedback

Mar 16 2017 - Dutch elections 2017

The Netherlands is showing us that a breakthrough for the extreme right is not a foregone conclusion and that progressives are gaining momentum.feedback

Mar 16 2017

The Netherlands shows us that the breakthrough of the extreme right is not inevitable and that European progressives are growing stronger.feedback

Mar 08 2017

Those who live ... where social and economic difficulties or migration are concentrated, do not receive the same chances as elsewhere to succeed.feedback

Mar 06 2017

We have been taken for a ride.feedback

Mar 06 2017

What I want is that bank and insurers' main solvency and capital rules are discussed at the European level of Ecofin each year and that we set the main rules with targets for financing the economy.feedback

Mar 02 2017 - French election 2017

It's a serious and important moment, because two candidates have chosen to propose conservative projects or those of regression and retreat for the country. Yet they have also decided to deliberately attack the rule of law and, in particular, the authority of the justice system. We'll implement a reform forbidding the hiring of close relations or family members. This has been an integral part of the 'Onwards!' movement since day one and we'll carry it through to ensure all parliamentarians respect it.feedback

Mar 02 2017 - Protectionism

Mr Trump would be making a grave mistake by going back on his predecessor's commitments towards the climate.feedback

Mar 02 2017

We are not proposing to reform our country. We're proposing to transform it.feedback

Feb 24 2017 - French politics

The step that was taken, our common decision on an alliance that we took together is, in my opinion, a real turning point not only for this campaign, but also for the French political life, because it shows the capacity to go beyond classical divisions of our political life.feedback

Feb 23 2017 - French election 2017

Unlike Francois Fillon, I don't believe in a purge and in fixing the country against the people's will. And unlike Benoit Hamon, I don't accept defeat on the jobs front. France must carry out structural reforms: it's good for us and will reassure our partners, and chiefly Germany. If we don't have a brave plan of structural reforms, the Germans won't follow us.feedback

Feb 22 2017

It is the preservation of Europe, of the common market, of the European Union, which are in play at this moment. If we don't negotiate this 'Brexit' well, everyone will be weakened. And then, of course we will defend French interests.feedback

Feb 10 2017 - Climate change

Please, come to France. You are welcome, it's your nation. We like innovation, we want innovative people, we want people working on climate change, energy, renewables and new technologies. France is your nation.feedback

Feb 10 2017 - Climate change

I do know how your new president now has decided to jeopardize your budget, your initiatives â as he's extremely skeptical about climate change.feedback

Feb 08 2017 - French election 2017

If you're told I lead a double life with Mr Gallet, it's because my hologram has escaped.feedback

Feb 05 2017

I am thinking about our British friends who chose to leave Europe (…) I am thinking about the withdrawal operated for several years by our American friends who may be deciding to abandon their historic mission, which is, by our side, to ensure peace around the globe. We cannot praise the European project without offering at the same time a new vision for Europe.feedback

Feb 05 2017

I don't want a new wall. I can reassure you, there will be no wall in my manifesto. We have European borders… and that is our real security.feedback

Feb 04 2017

They don't speak in the name of the people, they speak in the name of their bitterness, they speak for themselves, from father to daughter and daughter to niece. They betray liberty by shrinking our horizons, they betray equality by stating that some are more equal than others, they betray fraternity because they hate the faces that don't look like theirs. Some jobs will have to disappear, just like candlers, coach-builders and water sellers disappeared.feedback

Jan 11 2017

The truth is that we must collectively recognise that the euro is incomplete and cannot last without major reforms. It has not provided Europe with full international sovereignty against the dollar on its rules. It has not provided Europe with a natural convergence between the different member states. The euro is a weak Deutsche mark, the status quo is synonymous, in 10 years' time, with the dismantling of the euro.feedback

Nov 16 2016

I've witnessed from the inside the vacuousness of our political system, which prevents the majority of ideas on the grounds that they weaken the political machinery, the traditional parties and acquired interests, which no longer pursue the common good, but rather their own interests.feedback

Apr 15 2016

I think that's a big mistake. The best possible trade deal is the one you have and especially the one just renegotiated with the rest of the EU.feedback

Apr 15 2016

Do you think you will be in a situation to protect your steel industry tomorrow if you are alone as the UK economy facing the Chinese one? I do believe it's much more efficient to be part of the EU.feedback

Apr 15 2016

So for sure, you can renegotiate a trade arrangement, but this trade deal will be less favourable to the UK than being part of the club.feedback

Apr 15 2016

So those who pretend that passporting will be preserved exactly following the same rules without any contribution to the budget, are making a big, a big mistake because it's completely wrong.feedback

Mar 22 2016 - European Commission

The British have managed to negotiate long-term guarantees for nuclear newbuild with the European Commission, at a high price level, which opens perspectives.feedback

Mar 22 2016

We need to understand that a delay would create a strong risk that we would lose the contract.feedback

Mar 05 2016 - Renault

What we are very clearly demanding is that Mr Ghosn live up to his responsibilities with regard to his compensation for 2016.feedback

Failing which we would be compelled to legislate.feedback

Jan 15 2016 - Renault

We will divest these shares only when they have returned to their normal price.feedback

Aug 27 2014

We can decide each day to spread bad news and say that France is lost. We remain a big economic and industrial power. We are in a difficult situation, we shouldn't deny it, we should fight it. But that won't be done against part of our own side, or against part of the French people. It will be done using all our energy.feedback
