French President Emmanuel Macron was asked on 16 Jan. about how he would handle a possible re-election of Donald Trump in the US later this year.
“I take the leaders who are chosen by their people,” Macron replied. The French president two days later received Cambodian prime minister Hun Manet at the Elysée.
Hun Manet, of course, does not meet Macron’s criteria of being chosen by the people. He was not even officially a candidate for prime minister in the last election, which took place without any recognized opposition party, in July 2023.
