Apr 26, 2018

French President Emmanuel Macron addressed a joint session of the U.S. Congress Wednesday, drawing a three-minute standing ovation as he took the podium. Macron claimed the U.S. and France share the values of liberty, tolerance and equal rights, and spent much of his 50-minute speech swiping at President Trump’s policies on trade and the environment. He also urged the U.S. not to withdraw from the Iran nuclear agreement.

President Emmanuel Macron: “It is true to say that this agreement may not address all concerns and very important concerns. This is true. But we should not abandon it without having something substantial and more substantial instead. That’s my position.”
