Macron seen as president of the rich
FRENCH President Emmanuel Macron is increasingly being portrayed as the “president of the rich” – an unpopular epithet in a country where bragging about money is taboo and equality is a national motto.
After scrapping a wealth tax and courting big investors, his popularity is flagging and he made matters worse with a vulgar reference to soon- to- be- jobless workers.
