Macron’s charm offensive on Trump is part of his bid to lead Europe

Today 07:03 GMT

Can a 40-year-old French president, who gives sweeping speeches about Europe, singlehandedly save the global liberal order – and western democracy with it – by whispering into a the ear of a 71-year-old US president who has only contempt for the European project and the values it is meant to uphold?

What all this boils down to is that Macron’s European ambitions depend not only on his domestic reform agenda, but also on the extent to which he is able to raise his profile in Washington, and draw credibility from that in Europe.

By giving herself bonus points for voting her conscience while attempting to write off most of the black voters who vote theirs, Owens is exempting herself from the hard work of trying to persuade people, black or otherwise, that the policies she favors are the right course for the black community and the country.

There are, of course, many working-class Republicans, and many rich black Democrats, but it was a clever way to make a point: Striving black Americans ought to reconsider what the GOP has to offer.
