Italy: Salvini backs Yellow Vests, says Macron is ‘harming the French people’

Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini gave his backing to the Yellow Vest movement in France while speaking in Rome on Monday, but also denounced the violence of the protests.

“I side with the millions of Frenchmen who are complaining about a president who is harming the French people,” Salvini said.

However, Salvini also criticised the violence which has become commonplace during the Yellow Vest protests.
