For François Fillon, the victory of the republican is the opportunity ” to say stop and to convince the Europeans to put in place a transatlantic relationship much more balanced “. ” America will shrink in on itself : it leaves us with a fantastic possibility to reaffirm leadership. I think that these five years may mark the return of France and of Europe on the international stage, “, has predicted Nicolas Sarkozy.
” He was elected, but it does not oblige us to be like him “, has launched Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, for which the “about detestable Donald Trump are not acceptable” now that he is president. the ” Will he do after the election what he had announced before ?

the mayor of Meaux, ” the priority, it is not the fate of Bashar Al-Assad, [but] the destruction of the islamic State, and of all islamist movements “. Jean-Frédéric Poisson is not of this opinion. the ” Either Bashar Al-Assad is, or islamists take power. When it came time to shake hands with Stalin to beat Hitler, there had been fewer questions “, has argued the president of the christian democratic Party. the ” if the fall of the regime “, the christians of the East will have the choice between ” the suitcase or the coffin “, said of his side, Mr Fillon.

Alain Juppe is back on the proposal of François Fillon to remove 500 000 government jobs. For him, ” if one removes 500 000 jobs, we do not recruit nurses, not policemen, and that, it is just impossible. “

Nicolas Sarkozy, he abounded in the sense of Francois Fillon : ” It is necessary to increase the duration of the working time of public servants. I’m all for working more to earn more. “ But it will stand out to his former prime minister in refusing the increase of two points of VAT that it offers.
