Trump calls Macron to congratulate him on election win

Trump calls Macron to congratulate him on election win

"The French have elected a new president and opted for continuity", Le Pen told supporters just outside Paris.

Independent centrist Macron, 39, became France?s youngest-ever president after crushing the far-right National Front's Marine Le Pen in the presidential runoff yesterday.

The European Union, for its part, has been witnessing severe divisions and a major identity crisis, which was mainly incited by the exit of Britain.

Mr Macron's campaign members Christophe Castaner and Benjamin Griveaux said Mr Valls is welcome but would have to go through the regular application process.

Leaders of the 28-nation European Union, from which Le Pen said she wanted to remove France, were explicitly effusive in their congratulations.

"Happy that the French chose a European future".

German Chancellor Angela Merkel described his victory as "a victory for a strong and united Europe and for French- German friendship". While Mr. Macron won a decisive victory over Le Pen, it is important to note that Madame Le Pen received 34 percent of the votes or the support of nearly 11 million people and everybody who supported her or did not, knew that her top agenda was to leave the European Union.

The New York Times said that France, like other major democracies, faced the challenge of "many people feeling marginalised by globalisation, economic stagnation, an unresponsive government, unemployment, faceless terrorism and a tide of immigrants".

"This is a victory for the French people and for European cooperation".

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau telephoned Emmanuel Macron to congratulate him.

The new president has said he wants to break with the traditional left-right political axis in France and Valls is inextricably linked to unpopular outgoing Socialist President Francois Hollande.
