In a supercharged Zénith de Toulon, Marion Maréchal took the stage.

"What a pleasure Éric, after five long years of absence in politics, to come back to support your candidacy for the presidential election", launched the young woman.

"Thanks to Marion, I always had the intuition that one day we were going to fight together for France," replied the Reconquest candidate.

Mea culpa on the issue of Ukrainian refugees

And then, a mea culpa on the Ukrainian refugees.

His position of not wanting to welcome any has indeed tensed even in his camp and Éric Zemmour has therefore decided to bend his line.

"For those Ukrainians who would prefer to come to France because they have ties there, family, because they are French-speaking, then we must welcome them until the bombings stop", he finally decided. .
