France’s presidential candidates 24 presented live coverage of the only presidential debate between far-right candidate Marine Le Pen and centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron. This was the first time in modern French history that no candidate from a mainstream party advanced to the runoff round. Ms. Le Pen, who supports a French exit from Europe, clashed with Mr. Macron over the way forward in the European Union and how to combat terrorism in the country. Other topics focused on U.S.-France relations under the Trump administration, lowering taxes, and France’s place in the world. Following the debate, France 24 panelists offered immediate analysis.
