In an interview with the pro-Front National monthly magazine L'incorrect, Mr Dupont-Aignan, a close ally of hard-right leader Marine Le Pen, said: “Mr Macron is a traitor who is betraying the interests of his country… He is the country’s appointed liquidator, the trustee of failure… He’s closing up shop.”
Mr Dupont-Aignan, an anti-immigration hardliner, added that Mr Macron, 39, was “colonising” France.
He said: “Mr Macron is bringing about the economic and cultural colonisation of France, and is doing nothing to stop mass immigration.”
The pro-Le Pen MP also said that there was a clear “political divide” between politicians who “believe in France” and those who have “lost faith in France,” adding that the “Macron shockwave” had forced the two camps to put their differences aside and join forces to oppose the centrist government.

“Laurent Wauquiez (The Republicans) will never win alone, Mrs Le Pen will never win alone and I will never win alone. Mr Macron won the election because he won the support of globalists and europhiles. We need to join forces and win the support of right-wingers who are opposed to Mr Macron,” Mr Dupont-Aignan said.
“Our aim is to represent all those who don’t want Mr Macron to be their president and who cannot stand the fact that their country is being cheapened by the government,” he continued, before adding that far-left opposition party leader Jean-Luc Mélenchon had not been invited to join the anti-Macron coalition.
Mr Dupont-Aignan won 4.7 per cent of the vote in the presidential election’s first round in April, and was then failed presidential hopeful Mrs Le Pen’s top pick for prime minister.
