Farage: Macron ‘Virtue Signals’ to the World, Is ‘Disconnected’ from the French People

Brexit architect Nigel Farage has condemned France’s President Emmanuel Macron for spending more time “virtue signalling” to the world than connecting with his own people, which he said has resulted in the escalation of violence at Yellow Vest protests.

The Member of European Parliament and former UKIP leader told Trish Regan on Fox News Business Monday that while the Yellow Vest protests began with the issue of ‘green’ taxes, in its third week it has evolved to express dissatisfaction with the global ruling elite, specifically 40-year-old President Macron.

“What we saw in the last couple of days was the third week, now, of these protests and a level of violence not seen in France since the student uprising in 1968,” Mr Farage said, “so it would appear that these protests are gaining momentum.”
