During the president’s visit to southeast France on Tuesday, the French President Emmanuel Macron was slapped in the face by an unknown individual in the crowd.
The president’s security quickly intervened, arrested the man, while making sure that no other harm came to the president. But that did not stop the president from continuing his meeting with the public.
The police have arrested 2 people, the man in question, and his supporter. According to the latest report, the 2 men might be facing prison and will pay a good amount of money.
Many politicians have condemned this act, especially Marine Le Pen, the French president’s highest rivalry.
She said that she knows that she is Emmanuel Macron’s main rivalry but that Macron is the president of the republic as such, can not be touched. She intends to beat him politically but cannot accept the slightest violence towards him.
Many French people have sent out their support for the president and for now, the culprits are being detained.
