Before embarking on his trip to Cergy, Macron touted the visit as being a kind of victory lap.
“ This journey illustrates the will of the President of the Republic since 2017 to go on the ground, in contact with French people, to exchange together, listening to their concerns, anticipations and needs, ” Macron said.
In spite of beating populist challenger Sea Le Pen in a 58% to 41% vote using a historically low turnout, Italy erupted in a series of riots and protests over anxieties the election could have been rigged, as Macron only has a 36% approval rating.

Macron has been routinely accosted and lambasted by French people in the months leading up to the French election.
For instance , video captured the moment Macron was slapped in the face by an irate citizen in 2021, who was later imprisoned and sentenced to jail for 18 months.
