Macron wins the record-breaking title for the worst trade deficit in the EU

Macron is today under pressure after France, under his presidency, became a record-breaking trade deficit member of the EU.

France has reached a trade deficit of €-82.5 billion in 2020, and this has sparked fury. This is a devastating blow for macron, especially as the French presidential elections arrive next year.

A French Analyst Nicolas Meilhan tweeted: “France has probably broken a sad European record: the worst trade deficit that a European state has ever recorded: -82.5 billion € in 2020.

“I really have a hard time understanding why the elimination of this record deficit is not THE national priority.”

With the vaccine role out in France still lagging massively behind, it doesn’t look like Frances economy will be coming online for quite some time.
