President Trump recently had an amazing visit to France!
The president was invited to France by Emmanuel Macron for the annual Bastille Day parade.
According to a new poll, roughly six in ten French citizens approve of Trump’s visit to the country.
It seems that no matter where Trump goes, even in globalist France, he commands respect and praise.
Mr. Trump’s was expected to court protests from far left activists in Paris, but a new study conducted by the Elabe Institute of 995 people over a two-day period shows the majority of the rest of the country approved of President Macron’s decision to invite the American president, French broadcaster BFMTV reports.
Of those polled, 59 per cent favoured the visit, with the greatest support coming from those who identify as right-wing.
69 per cent of supporters of former Republican presidential candidate François Fillon were in favour, and 67 per cent of anti-mass migration Front National leader Marine Le Pen agreed the invitation was a good move by Macron.
The support from Le Pen voters surprised the pollsters after she was only recently defeated in a bitter second round campaign by Macron in May.
The far left supporters of former presidential candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon were predictably against the visit, but only by 56 per cent.
Age also played a role in the polling, with young people aged 18 to 24 being the most divided on the visit, although 52 per cent agreed with Macron’s invitation.
Retirees and those over 65 expressed the strongest agreement, with 63 per cent in favour.
While the majority of French think the visit was a good idea, the most vocal voices have been those who oppose the visit and oppose the U.S. president.
In the vicinity of the Place de la Republique, far left groups set up a “No Trump Zone” where protesters held signs, listened to music, and protested largely without incident.
