Macron says Notre Dame should be rebuilt consistent with the modern, diverse France – and architects suggest a glass roof, steel spire and minaret

Macron’s initial promise to restore the magnificent cathedral to its former glory has been shoved aside.

Macron Says Social Media & Russia Are To Blame For Yellow Vest Movement

French President Emmanuel Macron, who considers himself ‘a man of the people’ does not blame himself or economic problems for the rise of the yellow vest movement.

Paris Is Burning – EU Press Asks Whether Macron ‘Can’ Continue?

Armistice Day: Trump-Macron smooth over defence spat

Donald Trump and France’s Emmanuel Macron have both said Europe should pay more of its defence costs, a day after the US president lambasted the idea of a European army.

A 615-page report was recently released, written by an adviser to President Emmanuel Macron, Hakim El Karoui, who is in charge of designing the new institutions of an “Islam of France.” The report defines Islamism as an “ideology totally distinct from Islam” and also never addresses the links between Islamism and terrorism. The report also insists on the urgent need to spread “true Islam” in France and adopt the teaching of Arabic in public high schools.
