In the dispute between the governments in Paris and Rome has Italy’s interior Minister, Matteo Salvini, with a criticism of the French President. Emmanuel Macron “talks a lot, but not achieved much,” scoffed Salvini in a live stream on Facebook. “He teaches lessons in generosity, but then rejects thousands of migrants on the border to Italy.” He hoped, therefore, that the French will miss your “terrible President” in the European elections in may, a lesson, said Italy’s right-wing Vice-head of the government.
The answer from Paris was not long in coming. The Head of the Ministry for European Affairs Nathalie Loiseau, wrote on Twitter, the French had already decided the last presidential election against the right-populist Marine Le Pen, but for Macron. Loiseau made no secret of the fact that she keeps the word message from Rome for, at best, superfluous. “Matteo Salvini offended the French. What the Italians have of it? Nothing. The difference in the political Situation in France? No.“
