Emmanuel Macron


Last quote by Emmanuel Macron

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

NEW May 27 2017 Terrorism
We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which Emmanuel Macron is associated, including UK, EU, and euro. Most recently, Emmanuel Macron has been quoted saying: “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.” in the article Donald Trump will make 'final decision' on Paris climate deal next week.

Emmanuel Macron quotes

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.feedback

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Rural areas need an open, conquering France. Our agriculture needs Europe and openness.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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The challenge is to open a new page of our political life.feedback

I've seen the emptiness of our political system from the inside...I reject this system.feedback

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I've always paid all my tax in France and had all my accounts in France.feedback

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

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

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

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

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

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'm suspicious of the hidden agenda of politicians.feedback

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
