Healing divisions in France

In a victory speech last month, a mere 90 minutes after he was projected re-elected as French President for a second term, Emmanuel Macron, 44, with a twinkle in his eye and a smile on his face, assured those who did not vote for him: "I am no longer the candidate of one camp, but the President of all."
