Emmanuel Macron wins French presidency by emphatic margin - projections
Mr. Trump had previously expressed support for Ms Le Pen because she was "strongest on borders, and she's the strongest on what's been going on in France".
Macron beat Le Pen by 66 percent to 34 on a platform of market-friendly reform and closer European integration.
Macron´s emphatic victory brought comfort to investors and European allies alike, who had been nervous about the risk of another populist upheaval, following Britain´s vote to quit the EU and Donald Trump´s election as USA president - neither of which had been predicted by pollsters or bookmakers.

The centrist's emphatic victory, which also smashed the dominance of France's mainstream parties, will bring huge relief to European allies who had feared another populist upheaval to follow Britain's vote to quit the EU and Donald Trump's election as U.S. president. The right could make further gains in coming years, especially if Macron fails - and Le Pen will certainly be trying to make gains in June when France holds its parliamentary elections.

A European integrationist and pro-Nato, he is orthodox in foreign and defence policy and shows no sign of wishing to change France's traditional alliances or re-shape its military and peace-keeping roles in the Middle East and Africa.
Presidential hopeful Emmanuel Macron casts his vote in a crucial French election which he is favourite to win. I want Emmanuel Macron, his government and his majority to succeed, for France.
