Video shows a man slapping French President Emmanuel Macron across the face during a visit to a town in the country’s southeast on Tuesday.

“We must put this incident in perspective. This is an isolated event,” Macron later said, speaking to Le Dauphine Libre newspaper. “We must not let ultra-violent people take over the public debate. They do not serve it,” he added.
