France's National Rally leader Marine Le Pen slammed French President Emmanuel Macron for his governance as president during her campaign launch for the 2019 European Parliament election in the French town of Frejus on Sunday.
Marine Le Pen, National Rally leader (French): "It's increasingly obvious that Macron isn't solving problems, he's buying time. He doesn't have a grand vision, he's feeling his way. He's not marching forward, he's crawling."
Marine Le Pen, National Rally leader (French): "The battle for the European elections, which is starting, can change everything. It's up to us whether we'll rise to the occasion."
Marine Le Pen, National Rally leader (French): "The latest Odexa poll puts us neck and neck with [Macron's party] 'la Republique en Marche' with 21 per cent of the votes. Since Emmanuel Macron told us to come and get him, our voters immediately replied, 'Here we come!'"
Marine Le Pen, National Rally leader (French): "Today, we're no longer the marginalised ones. They are. It's Mrs. Merkel who is losing more power every day. It's the stumbling Mr. Juncker. And it's Emmanuel Macron, the tightrope-walking president, who's walking over the void. It's [Alexis] Tsipras, [Jean-Luc] Melenchon's ally, who's lying down, and our friend [Matteo] Salvini who's standing up!"
