EU Commission Clash: The Candidates' Debate - Part 2

Part 2 of France 24's exclusive face-off between Frans Timmermans and Manfred Weber, two of the would-be successors to Jean-Claude Juncker. France 24's European Affairs Editor Catherine Nicholson asks the candidates how they would respond to France’s "Yellow Vest" movement and demands from around the EU for better purchasing power, job prospects and economic conditions. We also discuss the increasingly difficult relations between the EU and the US, and the EU and Russia.
