    As a french citizen : it’s very funny that Bruno Le Maire is doing this interview and passing as an great ennemy of Eric Zemmour, our Trump. It’s ironic because his government spent its entire existence stoking up far right ideas in order to be facing far right parties in the election and to be seen as the only solution against them. They’ve amped up all xenophobic rethorics and at the same time they haven’t done anything to solve the problems leading to far right extremism rise. This guy is a joke, and I begin to feel like Trevor Noah is too often duped by politicians in his interviews.

    Ukraine was a coup by USA 🇺🇸. They over threw a Democratally elected goverment. And now use Ukraine to annoy Russia

    Regarding the question on the relationship between France and it’s former colonies, he forgot to mention the recent restitution of African arts to Benin and Senegal. It’s a first step of many but Macron said in 2017 that he wants to give back the African arts that are in the French museums back to their countries of origin. Also, another great point was the recent summit « Afrique France » that gathered young entrepreneurs from African countries and the President where they exchanged around the new relationships between France and the African countries. I’m afraid it was not translated in English yet, the summit was held a few months ago. I believe we’re looking in the right direction, and as the minister said, to be on « equal footing » with the African countries.

    China does nothing and gives zero vaccine yo Africa. You call them greedy. They give vaccines and infrastructure support without demands of regime change or forced language indoctrination and you call it a new kind of colonization. .. sounds crazy. What if China cares about helping the less developer world that stood up for it at the un several decades ago during it’s founding.

    “Might”, “should”, “could” … just political empty talk. Did you notice the knot in his throat when he said sanctions “might” not be the only measure against Russia? Or when he cowered with “well, I wouldn’t call (China’s influence) colonization”. He knows all the things that are wrong and what it takes to make them better but lacks the strength to do anything about it. His political opponents are equally powerless but are psychopaths who are willing to get everyone killed with their bravado. So those are our options: leftist cowards or far-right nut jobs. Neither truly cares about the people. They just want power and money for as long as they can last. Pretty soon the real powers will come in and take everything … and our only recourse will be total annihilation. Just try to survive until the next cycle.

    Trevor bringing in the French Finance Minister on a US talk show, and widening the conversation on misanthropy and cultural identity, is why he is the best in the game right now.
