“In reality, we stopped investing in the nuclear sector. He disrupted the nuclear industry with his announcements and, today, we are no longer able to heat all French people properly. It’s very heavy, it’s very seriousshe denounced. That’s why I say to the French, ‘you know, the vote you’re going to take on April 10 and 24 is not only going to determine the next five years, but the next fifty years’.. For the far-right MP, the future president will have “great strategic choices to be made in terms of reindustrialisation, food independence…”. Before attacking once again the balance sheet of the outgoing president:

“He wants to abolish nuclear power at the start of his mandate. He wants to revive it at the end of his mandate. He agrees with the drop in European food production at the start of his mandate. Today, he wants to renounce this reduction in food production imposed by the European Union. But where does it take us? However, a leader who does not have a clear vision leads a policy that is dangerous. »

“It feels like a kind of goldfish in a bowl and we go around in circles. We do, we undo, we redo, we redo, and this, in all areas »she continued on BFM-TV, believing that Mr. Macron “has no vision, does not know where he is going”.
