President Donald Trump congratulated the "people of France on their successful presidential election".
Reflecting on Macron's victory over far-right leader Marine Le Pen in the presidential runoff on Sunday, Valls said it was a blow to populism in Europe that gave a "terrific" image of France overseas. Merkel said Macron "carries the hopes of millions" in Europe, speaking ahead of the upcoming G7 and G20 summits in which European Union nations will now be able to present a united front against Trump's protectionist stance.
French President-elect Emmanuel Macron on May 8 made his first public appearance after easily defeating nationalist Marine Le Pen a day earlier, joining outgoing President Francois Hollande at a wreath-laying ceremony in Paris as he began preparing his transition to power. Sunday's election also boasted an abstention rate over 25 percent, the news service added, seemingly indicating high dissatisfaction with the candidates.
Macron's most immediate battle is likely securing a parliamentary majority in upcoming legislative elections in June.

Trump was among world leaders sending congratulations to Macron, noting his "big win today as the next President of France".
If opinion polls are right, Macron may actually end up having a parliament largely sympathetic to his agenda at a time when the European economy - and the French one in particular - appear to be gaining momentum.
Trump had not expressed support for either candidate in France's election although he predicted last month that an attack on police officers in Paris could help Le Pen because she is "the strongest on borders".

"In these conditions it is especially important to overcome mutual mistrust and unite efforts to ensure global stability and security", Putin told Macron. Add in the record number of abstentions and spoiled votes in the election, the low turnout and the defeat of traditional parties, and there's a clear sense of alienation within French society.
