President Macron urged leaders to reject "the law of the most powerful," in what was seen as a veiled rebuke of the US. He also stressed the need for dialogue with Iran, which Trump accused of having a "blood agenda."
France's Emmanuel Macron has drawn fresh criticism for telling an aspiring gardener he could easily find work in hospitality or construction. "I can find a job by crossing the road," Macron told the young jobseeker.
A year after winning over 66 percent of French voters, Macron's support has fallen to just 29 percent, according to a new poll. The president's policies are now seen by some as favoring big business and the rich.
Emmanuel Macron is showing the first signs of wear: Unpopular reforms, a resigned environment minister and a bodyguard embroiled in scandal. Macron is under pressure, and it's not doing his European project any good.
