French President Emmanuel Macron quipped he's trying to make France "great again" in response to criticism he's governed as an authoritarian, a nod to the famous "Make America Great Campaign" slogan of President Donald Trump.
Macron is making an official state visit to the United States beginning Monday to celebrate nearly 250 years of U.S.-French relations.
"Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace noted some in the French press have compared Macron to Napoleon and King Louis XIV since he took office in 2017. Although the 40-year-old Macron is viewed as a progressive stalwart abroad, the Washington Post reports he's seen as a "liberal strongman" in his own country.
Discontent with him has grown in France for governing in a perceived autocratic fashion and being beholden to the rich, and critics have taken exception to his efforts to reduce the powers of Parliament. A recent poll showed only 42 percent support for his policies in France.
"Do you ever feel you need to guard against being arrogant?" Wallace asked.
"Definitely," Macron said. "But having authority, deciding, being aware of all the consequences of your decision, and thinking that you have to stick to your decision to deliver when it's good for the country, is not the same as being authoritarian or being arrogant."
"I'm here to serve my people in my country and make it great again, as somebody I know very well could say," Macron added. "That's the whole story, and make it great again means delivering good results, having more unity for the country, and being fair with the people."
Macron said ahead of his visit that he and Trump have a "very special relationship" due to what he says are their outsider statuses.
"We have a very special relationship because both of us are probably the maverick of the systems on both sides," he said. "I think President Trump’s election was unexpected in your country, and probably my election was unexpected in my country. And we are not part of the classical political system."
While the leader of the oldest ally of the U.S. and Trump have appeared friendly for the cameras, they differ on several significant issues, among them the Iran nuclear deal, Syria, the Paris climate accords and Trump's recent steel and aluminum tariffs.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.) said she believes the country is ready for a woman president, although she said she was not "planning" on a 2020 bid for the White House.
In an interview with MSNBC host Al Sharpton at the National Action Network annual conference, Gillibrand said she was focused on her 2018 re-election bid to the U.S. Senate.
"But after '18, if you're re-elected, would you consider running?" Sharpton asked.
"Well, I'm definitely not planning on it," she said. "I'm really focused only on '18."
Sharpton, who also interviewed Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) and Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) for "PoliticsNation" on Sunday, asked Gillibrand if she thought the country was ready for a woman president.
"I do," she said. "Hillary [Clinton] won the popular vote. The country's ready, and I think that what they really want is a leader who speaks from conviction, speaks from their heart with great authenticity and passion, and that could be a man or a woman. So I believe the country is ready. It's just about someone who is going to really share their values and fight for what they care deeply about."

Google translate : "The videos that are circulating in social networks have repercussions throughout the country and show a group, with at least six men, practicing a barbarous act of mistreatment against a dog.
As the images show, those involved in the cruel act are consuming alcoholic beverages and do not bother hiding their faces, and at any time they laugh out loud before they start cruelty.
The group holds a dog, and then one of the individuals asks who will castrate the animal. After a few seconds of aggression one of the men pulls out of the waist, which appears to be a pocketknife, and begins to perform the cold-blooded cut of the intimate parts of the dog, the scenes are strong and needed to be censored.
According to witnesses, everything happened during the night of Wednesday (10/01), in the Walloon Stream, in Tabajara, Inhapim district. As verified by the SC journalism, two animals were abused by the group.
The dogs Spike and Bill. Both were cruelly castrated. The owner of the animals performs the necessary care, they have survived and are being treated with antibiotics."

A truck carrying highly toxic chemicals exploded in the wee hours on Saturday after being rear-ended on a high way, killing one person, and injuring two others.
The accident happened at 03:35 around 20 km away from Tianshui City of northwest China's Gansu Province.
When the truck, with 41 tons of "phosphorus pentasulfide" was heading for Baiyin City of Gansu from Mianyang City of southwest China's Sichuan Province, another truck running in the same direction crashed into it, causing a big fire.

As of 10:30, the local environmental authorities said that the air quality in the urban area returned to normal.
The accident is now still under investigation.

CNN political reporter Gloria Borger called the Democratic National Committee lawsuit Friday against the Donald Trump campaign, the Russian government, and WikiLeaks a "100 percent stunt."
"They want to get in the act, obviously they want to keep the story moving," Borger said. "This is nothing new, everyone has been, every Democrat has been charging that the Trump campaign was in collusion with Wikileaks, et cetera."
In the lawsuit, the DNC alleged the Trump campaign, the Russian government, and WikiLeaks conspired to interfere in the 2016 presidential election to elevate Trump.
Borger thinks the DNC's intentions are less than pure.
"Honestly, it's just a way to raise money. That's what it is, that's what they're trying to do," she said.
Some Democrats seem less than enthused about the lawsuit.
Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill (Mo.), up for re-election in 2018, called it a "distraction."
Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier (Calif.) told CNN's Wolf Blitzer Friday the Democratic National Committee's new lawsuit against the Donald Trump campaign, the Russian government, and WikiLeaks is "ill-conceived."
Blitzer started his interview by asking whether the lawsuit lends credence to the idea that the Russia investigation is sour grapes from the Democratic Party.
"I think this lawsuit is ill-conceived," Speier said. "And I'm not very supportive of it."
"I'm not interested in a political tit for tat, I'm interested in getting to the truth and if there's criminal conduct that's been engaged in, holding people accountable," she continued.
When Blitzer asked if she thought it was a "big mistake" that DNC chair Tom Perez was filing this lawsuit, Speier said, "I'm not supportive of it, whether it is a mistake or not, we'll soon find out."
Speier went on to say that information currently in the public domain, which is what the lawsuit is based on, is not enough to conclude any kind of conspiracy.
"Do you think this lawsuit runs the risk of stepping on Robert Mueller's investigation?" Blitzer asked.
Speier doubted that possibility and said, "I don't think that the DNC has been able to do anything more than speculate based on the statements and their complaint."

On his first day at a Chinese treatment camp for young people addicted to the Internet, Lorenzo Maccotta lived liked everyone else there: awake at 5 a.m., physical training in the morning, lunch, rest, more training, ethics lessons, war movies, dinner and bed.
Only once he'd been through a quick version of the digital detox did Maccotta lift his camera.
The 33-year-old photographer spent about a week at one of the hundreds of the military-style boot camps where young Chinese people are quarantined from their compulsive use of technology, mostly online gaming. Even as an outsider, it was difficult to protect his vision and keep his distance from the rigors of the program. "The main challenge was to keep my mind away from the repetition imposed by the school," he said. "It was not easy to find the distance to set a point of view."
China must strengthen its grip on the internet to ensure broader social and economic goals are met, state news agency Xinhua reported on Saturday citing comments from President Xi Jinping, underlining a hardening attitude towards online content.
Under Xi's rule China has increasingly tightened its grip on the internet, concerned about losing influence and control over a younger generation who are driving a diverse and vibrant online culture from livestreaming to blogs.
"Without web security there's no national security, there's no economic and social stability, and it's difficult to ensure the interests of the broader masses," Xinhua cited Xi as saying.
"We cannot let the internet become a platform for disseminating harmful information and stirring up trouble with rumours," he added in comments made at a cyber security conference in Beijing, Xinhua said.
Chinese regulators have been driving a sweeping crackdown on media content, which has been gaining force since last year, spreading a chill among content makers and distributors.
China is also looking to take a leading role globally in internet regulation and technology more broadly, which has come into sharp focus amid a trade standoff with the United States and an arms race over technology.
The United States banned sales of parts and software to Chinese telecoms equipment maker ZTE earlier this week, which the Chinese firm said on Friday threatened its survival. ZTE uses U.S. chips in many of its smartphones.
The ZTE case had "triggered a heated debate" in China about advanced technology, Xinhua said in a separate report on Saturday, adding mastering high-end technologies such as chips was "key" to becoming a strong nation.
Luo Wen, China's deputy industry minister, said while China had made progress in advance manufacturing in areas like electric vehicles and aviation, it was still facing challenges due to a lack of top talent and global scale, Xinhua said.

Amy Schumer confirmed she is, in fact, white Friday on “The View.”
She stated that she would have liked if a “woman of color” was the star the new movie “I Feel Pretty,” the movie that she herself, a white woman, chose to star in.
“The backlash was people were saying your character is a blonde of healthy weight who is attractive, and you’re supposed to make us believe that you are ugly? How do you respond to that?”
“First of all, that’s the nicest backlash I’ve ever heard,” Schumer said.
“No, it just made me excited for people to see the movie,” she said. “It’s not about an ugly, vile troll getting beautiful. It’s about a girl who really struggles with self-esteem, which is something we can all relate to.”
“Also, I think it is fair to say that it’s a lot harder for other people,” she added, “and I recognize that I am a caucasian, like — I would love if this movie were starring a woman of color who’s had it way harder than me, and I think, I hope we get there. This is hopefully just a step in the right direction.”
