Man who slapped President Macron says he did it because of Frances decline

A 28-year-old man on trial for slapping French President Emmanuel Macron testified on Thursday, June 10, that the attack was impulsive and unplanned, and prompted by anger at France’s “decline.”

 

Damien Tarel faces possible jail time and a fine if found guilty of assaulting a public official at the special emergency trial in the southeastern city of Valence.

Tarel was immediately arrested after the incident which occurred as the French leader was greeting a crowd in the region on Tuesday.
