Macron: I want Notre Dame rebuilt in five years

French President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday in a televised speech that he wants the Notre Dame Cathedral rebuilt within five years.

"We will rebuild Notre Dame Cathedral even more beautiful," he stated, adding that the French can and will "mobilize" to do so. Noting that "we have so much to rebuild," he thanked firefighters for saving the 12th century cathedral and donors for making pledges to help reconstruct the spire and roof which collapsed due to fire.

Major French companies Total, LVMH, Kering and L'Oreal, as well as the American tech-giant Apple, have already offered to donate millions of euros to restore the landmark Gothic cathedral which caught fire yesterday under as of yet unknown circumstances.
