Emmanuel Macron is again caught up with the terrorism file. It is “one more ordeal for the head of state, barely two weeks after the beheading of Samuel Paty“, comments the journalist France Télévisions Catherine Demangeat, live from the Elysee. The agenda of the President of the Republic is upset. During the morning of Friday, October 30, a”new defense council“will provide an update on the terrorist threat, and”should take further action“.
This attack comes in a tense context. In Nice (Alps-Maritimes) where he moved, Emmanuel Macron used a martial tone: “It is France which is attacked, it is three of our compatriots who fell“. The President of the Republic finds himself having to deal with two major crises: terrorism and the Covid-19 epidemic.
