POLITICO’s European colleagues Nicholas Vinocur in Paris and Ryan Heath in Brussels join Susan Glasser for a special edition of the Global Politico. The group delves into how Emmanuel Macron has just pulled off a great political upset, winning the presidency of France in a landslide little more than a year after creating his own political party. Call him a political entrepreneur, a thirtysomething outsider, a disruptor on a par with Donald Trump. But he’s also the ultimate establishment figure, a Europeanist who opened his victory party with the European Union’s anthem, a former Rothschild banker who wants to save the system, not blow it up.
