The Presidential Election: a French mirror
The Presidential Election
Today’s political landscape has engulfed the international attention into a generalized incertitude.
Since the beginning of the Elections, the international media has been following closely the development of the United States exercise of the fundamental right in democracy.
The French media specially seems to witness the American Election as premonitory for its own political scenario.
Anger has won
This is the headline of Le Monde, this morning, resuming the European perspective of an Election that debated the American position towards its future political position.
“The Election of Donald Trump opens a new world for the Western democracies, dominated by a stream of protests from the traditional elites”.
A total political earthquake
Le Parisien seems to think closely, with remarks on the “populism” and the comeback of the citizens against the establishment.
The overthrown of the political values system
French newspaper Le Figaro goes a little further, qualifying Trump’s agenda as opposite to French political values.
Bring together and pacify
L’Opinion refers to Trump’s clear and calmed speech, and hopes for a transformation of the new President’s temper, more accordingly to his new challenge.
Against all odds
The French newspaper L’Humanité reflects the shared feeling of an electoral result that’s still shocking for the international opinion.
One thing is true: all eyes are on the American new political stage.
