Macron needs to reign in the anti-Bulgarian crazy talk for the sake of French national security

Posted by Iveta Cherneva on November 4, 2019 at 11:31am 0 Comments

France’s President Emmanuel Macron just told a French far-right magazine that he preferred legal immigrants from Guinea or Cote d’Ivoire to the illegal Ukrainian or Bulgarian gangs.
