Two-thirds of French citizens say they are "dissatisfied" with globalist President Emanuel Macron as their leader, according to a new poll.

The poll, conducted by pollster Ifop, surveyed voters across France for the conservative weekly Le Journal du Dimanche (JDD).

The poll shows that in France, 66 percent of voters say they are “dissatisfied” with Macron’s actions as president, compared to just 34 percent who say they are “satisfied.”

During the peak of the Yellow Vests movement last December, Macron’s approval rating plummeted to just 23 percent.

The figure dipped so low it matched that of his predecessor Francois Hollande’s at the end of 2013.

Hollande is widely viewed as the most unpopular French president in modern history.

The poll surveyed 988 French voters between August 21st and 22nd, following nine months of weekly Yellow Vest protests.

In April of last year, to quell the French population’s seething anger, Macron pledged significant tax cuts while calling for a return to public order.

He said that tax cuts would amount to roughly 5 billion euros and would be paid for by removing corporate tax breaks, longer work hours, and by reducing public spending.

Although for now, the Yellow Vest protests may have fizzled out, pension and unemployment benefits remain hot issues that could potentially restart the protest movement.

During G7, Macron got into a spat with Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro in which 'Tropical Trump' appeared to insult Brigitte Macron

During last weekend’s G7 summit in Biarritz, Macron looked to redirect media attention away from France’s domestic issues and onto Iran and Brazil.

Whether he succeeded or not is another story.

This year’s G7 summit saw a particularly intense spat between Macron and the Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, aka "Tropical Trump," over a social media where Bolsonaro appeared to insult Macron’s wife.

In response to the post, Macron called Bolsonaro extraordinarily rude.

At the end of the summit, Bolsonaro rejected $20 million in emergency aid offered by the G7 countries to counter fires in the Amazon.

Bolsonaro initially had said he would only accept the aid money after Macron apologized to him.

He has since softened his stance and has said he will accept the money, suggesting that he’s dropped the demand for an apology.
