French President Emmanuel Macron and President Donald Trump have a “very special relationship because both of us are probably the mavericks of the systems” in the U.S. and France, Macron told “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace in an interview that aired Sunday.
“We have a very special relationship because both of us are probably the mavericks of the systems on both sides,” said Macron. “I think President Trump’s election was unexpected in your country and probably my election was unexpected in my country.

Macron assumed office in May 2017 and ran as a center-left political outsider with the party he founded in 2016, La République En Marche!
Trump, who had never served in government before assuming the presidency, ran as a populist-conservative political outsider.
