Donald Trump Tweets Congratulations To France's Emmanuel Macron

President Donald Trump took to Twitter Sunday to congratulate Emmanuel Macron on his overwhelming victory in the French presidential election.

Trump congratulated Macron on his “big win” in the second round of voting and said he looks forward to working with France’s new leader. He didn’t immediately extend an invitation for Macron to visit the White House.

Macron, 39, defeated far-right candidate Marine Le Pen to become the youngest president in the 59-year history of the French Fifth Republic.

A White House statement congratulated “Macron and the people of France on their successful presidential election.

“We look forward to working with the new President and continuing our close cooperation with the French government,” the statement added.

Trump and the White House led a chorus of U.S. lawmakers who congratulated Macron, the establishment favoriate, for defeating the anti-European Union and anti-immigration Le Pen in a race that prompted comparisons to last year’s American presidential election, as well as the June “Brexit” vote by the United Kingdom to leave the EU.

The loser of last November’s election, Hillary Clinton, tweeted her own congratulations to Macron and included a reference to hacking attacks that targeted her and Macron’s campaign, as well as a shot at the news media.
