VIDEO Obama Endorses Macron in French Election

The man who told Brits to reject Brexit, before they did the opposite, is at it again.

Former President Barack Obama on Thursday made an endorsement in France's presidential election days ahead of a runoff vote, backing establishment candidate Emmanuel Macron over  anti-EU candidate Marine Le Pen.

“I know that you face many challenges, and I want all of my friends in France to know how much I am rooting for your success,” he said in a video announcing his support.

“Because of how important this election is, I also want you to know I am supporting Emmanuel Macron to lead you forward. En March! Vive la France!”

Macron, who leads the socially liberal party En Marche! (In Motion!), backs remaining in the European Union.
