“Macron ‘lost authority’ after giving in to demands of yellow vest protesters”

On Thursday Funke Media group in Germany published an interview with EU Budget Commissioner and former Prime Minister of Baden Württemberg Günther Oettinger.

Some interesting takeaways from the interview include his remarks that the very beleaguered and embroiled French President Emmanuel Macron “lost authority with his budget for 2019” when he agreed to increase his spending in response to the demands of the Yellow Jackets.

Oettinger further stated “but he remains a strong supporter of the European Union”. The Commissioner also told the newspapers that the EU will accept a French budget deficit above the EU’s three per cent ceiling in 2018 “as a one-time exception”, stating that Brussels had reviewed the French budget several weeks ago and won’t be revisiting it.
