Macron in America
The US media take an interest in France mainly when there is an election or a state visit. With Macron in the US right now, my views have been solicited by various media. Here is an article in Foreign Policy (forgive me: I am not responsible for the lurid title), and here is an interview with Slate.

Trump’s a puppy on an ice-rink.
Macron allows his leg to be energetically humped.
No harm in that.
But remember what Tony Blair discovered about standing shoulder to shoulder with bullying incompetents.
At least, they did not kiss on the mouth!
The question “what might Macron expect from Trump” is quite relevant. I wonder whether it might be, as you Art suggest, “support to his projects for reforming the EU”, as I just can’t see much tangible in the supposed “projects” — but the idea that a small part of the EuroMPs might be elected on transnational lists, an idea that I do approve, but, on a “Giscard to Schuman impact scale”, this idea ranks even below Giscard. On each topic, Macron’s points may be relevant imho, but sooooo tiny.
