PARIS – President Trump taunted French President Emmanuel Macron as France was burning in the wake of violent protests across the country on Saturday where an army of Yellow Vests demanded the president’s head.

“Very sad day & night in Paris. Maybe it’s time to end the ridiculous and extremely expensive Paris Agreement and return money back to the people in the form of lower taxes?” Trump tweeted after tens of thousands of people across France went to the streets to protest Macron’s government.

“The U.S. was way ahead of the curve on that and the only major country where emissions went down last year!” he added.

The latest data suggests that the U.S. was leading the way in cutting its CO2 emissions, though the United Kingdom and Japan, among the developed countries, also cut their emissions.

“The Paris Agreement isn’t working out so well for Paris. Protests and riots all over France,” Trump tweeted during the protests earlier today, saying the French don’t want to pay to protect the environment. – READ MORE
