US presidential elections -- The American people chooses Trump - How are the French reacting?

« Une période d’incertitudes » s’ouvre, selon François Hollande
« Cette élection ouvre une période d’incertitudes. Je dois l’aborder avec lucidité et clarté. Les Etats-Unis constituent un partenaire de tout premier plan. Ce qui est en jeu, c’est notamment la paix, la situation au Moyen-Orient. Sur tous ces sujets, j’engagerai sans tarder une discussion avec la nouvelle administration américaine – elle entrera en fonction le 20 janvier – mais je le ferai avec vigilance et franchise car certaines positions prises par Donald Trump pendant la campagne doivent être confrontées aux valeurs et aux intérêt que nous partageons avec les États-Unis », a réagi le président François Hollande.

"A period of uncertainty" is launched, according to François Hollande, French President.
"This election [of Donald Trump] launches a period of uncertainty. I have to deal with it with lucidity and clarity. The United States is a major partner. Peace and the situation in the Middle East are especially at stake. On all of these issues, I will engage in a dialog without any delay with the new US administration - which will take office on January 20 - but I will do so very carefully and very honestly because some of the stands Donald Trump took during the campaign must be confronted with the values and the interests we share with the United States,"  President Francois Hollande noted.
