Italy’s Salvini hopes France will get rid of ‘terrible’ Macron

In the latest in a series of incendiary comments aimed at maligned centrist French president Emmanuel Macron, Italy’s far-right Interior Minister worsened already strained relations between Rome and Paris by saying he hoped the French could soon free themselves of their “terrible president.”

“The opportunity will come on May 26 (the European elections) when finally the French people will be able to take back control of its future, destiny, (and) pride, which are poorly represented by a character like Macron”, Matteo Salvini said in his latest Facebook video taunting the government across the Alps.
