Macron’s win shows that one of Western world’s most effective counter-intelligence cultures will not be colonized by Vladimir Putin. The alt-right/fake news ecosystem fostered by Russia that helped Donald Trump win was beaten back by the French.
Other lawmakers are also weighing in on Macron’s rout of Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump-backed Marine Le Pen.
Congratulations to the people of France for rejecting racism, xenophobia, and the politics of fear!
