The American president returns to the Paris climate agreement. In a tweet published this Saturday, Donald Trump comments: "The Paris agreement does not work so well, events and riots everywhere in France," he writes. And he analyzes the situation: "People do not want to pay such sums (…) to protect, without any certainty, the environment."
Donald Trump concludes his speech by saying that French citizens demand a president like him. "They sing:" We want Trump! "I love France", he laughs.
Last Wednesday, the president of the United States had already worn the yellow jackets, a way to indirectly direct Emmanuel Macron and the climate agreement. Donald Trump was ironic about the concessions made by his French counterpart in the yellow fuel tax jackets, saying that they showed that the Paris climate agreement was doomed to fail.
"I am happy that my friend Emmanuel Macron and the Paris protesters have agreed on the conclusion I reached two years ago," he tweeted. "The Paris agreement is fundamentally negative because it raises energy prices for the responsible countries by providing a blank check to some of the worst polluters," he added.
