Emmanuel Macron was elected president of France this weekend. Macron who is 39 years old is the youngest French leader since Napoleon.
Macron also is making history by having a wife who is 64, 25 years older than Macron, and was his former high school teacher.
Following his election Macron vowed to defend Europe and said that France would not give Britain an easy exit from the EU.
Macron had a resounding victory over Marine Le Pen who had promised to lead France out of the EU if she was elected. The margin of defeat was lopsided with Macron getting 66 percent of the vote.
The Daily Mail reported that Macron addressed his supporter and said
Thank you my friends. Thank you for being here tonight. You have fought with courage. What we have done for so many months, everyone thought it was impossible, but they didn’t know France. I thank you for your trust. Thank you for the risk some have taken.
