France's president is in China for three days, in what might seem like the snapshot of a world order in flux. For starters, there was a press conference - which wasn't the case when Donald Trump recently visited. With the US washing its hands of multilateral deals on trade and climate change, Emmanuel Macron poses as more than French leader. And with Germany bogged down in coalition talks and the UK heading for Brexit, we ask our panel if Macron makes a convincing interim king of Europe.
