A French parliamentarian describes the finance minister as"cowardly" Due to the economic situation

French right-wing Rally National party member Alexandre Loubet called Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire a “coward” in a verbal debate over the country’s economic situation during a National Assembly session.

During the meeting, Lopet accused Emmanuel Macron’s government of “plundering” and betraying France, referring to the state of French industry.

The deputy asked: “You have sold hundreds of thousands of jobs to foreign interests… When will you stop betraying the interests of France?”

In response, Le Maire spoke about the measures taken by the government to protect French companies, as well as the situation with foreign investment in the country.

“There was a time when you worked with former French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin, who condemned the cowardice of those who refuse to defend the interests of France, today you are a coward,” Lobe said.

Le Maire demanded a public apology from the MP, stating that “he has been working for France and the French for 20 years”, after which he left the meeting room.

Between Le Maire and the head of the far-right National Association in the French Parliament, Marine Le Pen, short clashes broke out without microphones, after which the latter left the hall.

Leaving the room, she commented to BFMTV on the situation: “If Le Maire can’t keep his cool, let him go and plant strawberries instead.”
