    It looks like French President Emmanuel Macron is learning from history in his own specific way.

    Napoleon 2.0

    When addressing lawmakers, Macron said that the "greatness of France" was his government's main ideology. The speech wasn't supported by several right- and left-wing lawmakers, who decided to boycott it and accused the president of leaning toward the fashion from across the Atlantic, others slammed him for adopting a “monarchial” style. Separately, the #Macron Monarc hashtag was spread on Twitter.
