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.
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.
