Macron tells Erdogan: Zero chance of Turkey joining EU

The prospect of Turkey joining the European Union as a fully-fledged member is "hypocrisy", according to President Emmanuel Macron of France, who added that progress on the application was not possible given human rights concerns.

Mr Macron's remarks came during a tense press conference with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, as the French leader warned against flouting the rule of law and freedom of expression while his counterpart accused some writers and journalists of acting as "the gardeners" of terrorism.

During the exchange, the authoritarian Turkish leader, who ordered the arrest of up 55,000 security force members, judges, academics, journalists and activists in the wake of the 2016 failed coup, said his country was "exhausted" after 54 years in the "antichambre" of the EU.

"When it comes to saying why, the EU is not really capable of giving reasons," he claimed, adding that Turkey is currently blocked on 35 "chapters", or policy areas, of the negotiations.

"This is seriously exhausting us and seriously exhausting our nation. Maybe this will force us to take a decision," he said, without specifying what that might be. Mr Erdogan said in October that Turkey no longer needs to join the European Union but added that "we will not be the side which gives up" on accession talks.

But Mr Macron said that political developments in Turkey were effectively blocking its EU accession bid.

In a New Year address, French President Emmanuel Macron said 2018 will be “decisive” for Europe and pledged to push forward with his drive for greater integration.
Macron made the remarks in a televised speech on Sunday evening, declaring that “we need to rediscover a (((European))) ambition, to rediscover a more sovereign, more united, more democratic, Europe because it is good for our people.”
Macron called on European citizens to express what they wanted from Europe through public consultations that he has championed so that leaders could design a “great project.”
“At European level, 2018 will be decisive,” he said.
“I need for us, together, not to give way on anything, neither to nationalists nor to the skeptics,” he added.
“I will continue to work with all of our European partners, especially with Germany,” Macron said.
Among the 40-year-old president’s plans is a scheme to revamp the single currency bloc by introducing an EU finance minister, who would also oversee a eurozone budget and chair Eurogroup meetings.
The European Commission last month set out proposals that chimed to a large extent with Macron’s ideas. They included transforming the eurozone’s bailout arm into a European Monetary Fund, which would help stem economic crises from spiraling out of control across the bloc.
Both Macron and the Commission are also keen to create the post of a eurozone finance minister. But that idea has met resistance from other EU members. Germany is concerned that such a figure could wield too much power while Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte clashed with Macron at a summit in Brussels last month over France’s desire to speed up reform talks.

My guess is he wants to be the next Napoleon. You can't become Napoleon if you rule over a failing country like Sweden or Britain.

I'd just like to throw one thing out there: Paris is a fucking shithole because of the immigrants, so much so that it's impossible to ignore, even if you're fabulously wealthy. The city is simply too small to avoid them entirely. Even if you're a billionaire, your household staff aren't and they'll be constantly threatened and hurt by the shitskins and niggers there.
It's almost certain that Macron knows why Paris fucking sucks, and everyone but the most deluded fart huffing commies knows it. Given Macron's history, who knows what he'll do, but he's most likely not a fucking idiot on the issue.

They have the data, they know France and Western Europe is on the verge of a serious reactionary movement. Macron is doing what all jewish controlled puppets do when the system is under increasing pressure: act as a release valve.

What the fuck even is Macron at this point?
A miserable victim of sexual abuse as a child, as evidenced by his wife
is the most plausible explanation
<wow, would you look at that goyim, you finally won, Turkey won't join the (((EU))) and will not destroy human rights scam keeping murderers safe and sound while silencing victims without justice, the economy might go up so that's more McRoyals and Iphones for you, and it's all thanks to (((liberal social-democracy)))
Turkey accession would likely destroy the EU and cause a race war (unless western europeans just roll over and die because they don't feel like fighting), because kebabs aren't keen on secular bullshit like (((human rights)))

Macron will build a bridge to Africa but dealing with Turkey is beneath even his already low standards. How embarrassing. Kill yourself, Erdogan.

This. Public opinion is shifting so fast to the right that all the kikes plans are at risk.

Just last week I was sitting with friends openly discussing that it's the Jews behind everything, Hitler did nothing wrong, and the Holocaust is a total lie. There was broad agreement. This is among people who one year ago would have considered this unthinkable. This must be filtering back up to the top. They've pushed too far and blown everything.
