USA and France

The USA interferes in the elections in France.

Money from the Marshal Plan (the USA's post war aid to Europe) is funneled to the Socialist Party in order to deny victory to the Communist Party. Members of the Communist Party had fought in the French Resistance against occupation by Nazi Germany during World War II and have large popular support. One of their policies is for France to pull out of its attempted reconquest of Vietnam.

The USA threatens to cut economic aid to France if the government does not dismiss Communist ministers.
