I’ve seen this kind of sentiment a few times now about Germany. How does France actually play into all of this?

It's been pointed out that Macron is basically a classical neoliberal Republican if you think about his politics in American terms. The Euro-Franc currency peg can't be undone but if you can unwind the social safety net (like he's been doing) you can get closer to classical business class profit margins.
