Numerous votes cast were not for Macron, rather "it was a protest vote against Marine Le Pen", he says.

Trump tweeted: "Congratulations to Emmanuel Macron on his big win today as the next President of France".

"I'd like to help, especially with lowering the unemployment rate in France", she said. "He has work to do".

Clinton implied efforts to interfere with the French election had failed, likely referencing the release of hacked Macron emails two days before the election. People said it was impossible, but they didn't know France.' He is right that his campaign and subsequent victory are political firsts for France. "Now we have the legislative elections and it will be a bit complicated to really change something". "Obviously the government elected after June 8th will be sitting down and talking to Monsieur Macron and others about how that system we have works for the benefit of France as well as the benefit of the United Kingdom", she said. A 19-year-old told me he voted for Macron, but remains "disgusted by that": "I told myself it's a little less bad than voting for Marine Le Pen.' He voted for Mélenchon in the first round, but again was not completely "satisfied" with the candidate".

Macron had campaigned on a pro-EU platform, in stark contrast to Le Pen, who vowed to pull France out of the union in a referendum, as Britain voted to do a year ago.

Macron plans to tackle a decade of slow growth and rising unemployment by overhauling France's labor market, simplifying the tax and pension systems, paring back regulations and spending more on education, not least in deprived areas. Whereas, Le Pen's ideology would have alienated a large section of French population as she has publicly advertised her anti-Muslim ideas.

Le Pen campaigned for France to leave the 28-nation European Union and drop the shared euro currency in favor of reinstating a new French franc. He said France had rejected those who wanted to "build borders and walls, and reject immigrants".

Le Pen says the 10.6 million votes she won on Sunday will make her party the leading opposition.

Telegram claims that sending these videos are quick because the app actually compresses the clip even as it is being recorded. Telescope is "a dedicated video hosting platform for those who use videos to communicate with their audiences".

"I want to live in a democracy", he said.

In Britain, Prime Minister Theresa May said Macron's election makes it even more important for British voters to back her Conservatives and strengthen Britain's hand in European Union exit talks. Until recently he was deputy editor-in-chief at Agence France Presse.

However, a senior Republican, Christian Estrosi, who had backed Macron and been rumored to rally behind him, said on Monday he had turned down a ministerial post in order to focus on his home city of Nice.

What are Le Pen's next moves?

"Marine Le Pen did not pass the symbolically significant 40 percent threshold". Many voters backed him reluctantly, simply to keep out Le Pen's extremism. Harris's analysis suggested she had picked up significant numbers of votes in the runoff from supporters of both the center-right and even the far-left candidate who were eliminated in the first round.

What's next for her party?

"I'm not saying that the legislative elections are going to be easy for Macron".

"Clearly, she didn't pass the test".
