French Presidential Favourite Macron: Terrorism ‘Part of Our Daily Lives for Years to Come’ After Paris Shooting
Emmanuel Macron, the current favourite to win the French presidential elections, has described terrorism as an “imponderable problem” which will be “part of our daily lives for the years to come”.
President Donald Trump on Friday complained that a deadline he set for himself for various policy plans was unfair.
No matter how much I accomplish during the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days, & it has been a lot (including S.C.), media will kill!

Trump’s first 100 days in office ends April 29, and critics have pointed out that he has yet to achieve many of his own goals.
Shortly before the election, he laid out his plan for his first 100 days, including two of his biggest campaign promises: building a wall along the Mexican border and repealing the Affordable Care Act. He has yet to fulfill either commitment.
Then, days after the election, Trump released a video detailing many more accomplishments he’d hoped to make by the time his first 100 days were up. The video included promises to pull the U.S. out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, crack down on illegal immigration and get rid of regulations on coal mining― all of which he did.
In a separate announcement made in the wake of reports of Russian election meddling, Trump also promised to release a report on cybersecurity within 90 days of taking office. That report never materialized.
It’s not just journalists who have struggled to see the president’s actions as meeting his goals. White House press secretary Sean Spicer also had a hard time naming a single legislative win.
