Trump congratulates Macron and protesters for coming to conclusion he reached two years ago
President Trump congratulates Macron for coming to the same conclusion he reached two years ago. Now what Trump didn’t say and could have is it has taken seeing your country taken over by Muslims and burn for a few days of protest to see even slightly the push back against your climate change tax, aka Socialism.
Trump tweeted “I am glad that my friend @EmmauelMacron and the protesters in Paris have agreed with the conclusion I reached two years ago. The Paris Agreement is fatally flawed because it raises the price of energy for responsible countries while whitewashing some of the worst polluters in the world. I want clean air and clean water and have been making great strides in improving America’s environment. But American taxpayers-and American workers-shouldn’t pay to clean up others countries’ pollution.
….in the world. I want clean air and clean water and have been making great strides in improving America’s environment. But American taxpayers – and American workers – shouldn’t pay to clean up others countries’ pollution.

Macron two years ago jumped on the Socialism train and decided to enact carbon taxes which raised gas prices to over $7 a gallon in France. Now the people including police and paramedics are revolting.
In a speech to his ministers in November, Macron set the goal of making France “an environmental power of the 21st century.” He is also planning overhauls of the country’s pension system and schools, along with the elimination of tens of thousands of civil-service posts.
Mr. Macron’s agenda also suffered a setback on Tuesday in Brussels, where eurozone finance ministers refused to back French proposals for a sweeping overhaul of the bloc. Mr. Macron made shoring up the currency area a centerpiece of his campaign to prevent a repeat of the crisis that nearly tore the eurozone apart several years ago.
When Trump congratulates Macron he should add that being an “environmental power” has never made a country great. That is why his own people have been heard in the protest chanting “we want Trump.”
