Poll: 59 Per Cent of French Approve of President Trump Visit
Posted by Staff

A new poll has revealed that six in 10 French citizens approve of U.S. President Donald Trump’s visit to the country after being invited by President Emmanuel Macron to attend the annual Bastille Day parade.

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.
