Prison » Former French President Warns Macron’s Battle with Yellow Vests Will End ‘Badly’

April 2, 2019

Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy has warned that the current fight between President Emmanuel Macron and the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vest) movement will “end badly.”

Mr Sarkozy slammed Macron for not taking firm action against violence from radicals within the Yellow Vest movement saying, “Macron must act to restore authority.  The state must answer. I am sure he will do it. But it must be done now and with extreme firmness,” Le Figaro reports.

The comments come only days after Sarkozy appeared alongside the current president on the Glières plateau in Haute-Savoie on March 31st for the anniversary of fighting during the Second World War in 1944 that saw one hundred resistance fighters die at the hands of the Nazi regime.

Sarkozy has also come into conflict with Macron over the latter’s attitude toward Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.
