Obama injects himself into France’s election to the delight of progressive candidate recording the call

Private citizen Barack Obama thinks Europe is still interested in what he has to say.

The former president reportedly called French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron on Thursday, just three days ahead of the nation’s presidential election begins.

Macron, from the centrist party En Marche!, even posted a video of himself speaking with Obama whom he said stressed the importance of the relationship between the U.S. and France, according to a Reuters report.

The former U.S. president wanted to exchange views about the French presidential campaign, according to Macron who is the only candidate thus far says he has spoken with Obama.

“Emmanuel Macron warmly thanked Barack Obama for his friendly call,” the party “En Marche!” said in a statement, according to Reuters.

At Obama’s end, a spokesman said that “an endorsement was not the purpose of the call, as President Obama is not making any formal endorsement in advance of the run-off.”

The progressive candidate will be running against National Front Leader Marine Le Pen who is being labeled as “far-right” by the mainstream media.

With ISIS taking responsibility for Thursday’s terror attack in Paris that killed one police officer and injured another, the coming election is expected to be affected by the tragic event.

The populist wave that ushered President Trump into office has seemingly made its way to the United Kingdom with its exit from the European Union and may now affect the French election.

Trump tweeted about the Paris terror attack in the early morning hours on of Friday.

“The people of France will not take much more of this,” he said. “Will have a big effect on presidential election!”
