Trump trolls Macron over climate change

President Donald Trump used his Twitter  micro blog to comment on events in France, where fuel tax imposition caused public outrage culminating in a wave of  urban violence. President Macron  had to postpone his plans to implement his measure, conceived in name of climate change agenda:

I am glad that my friend @EmmanuelMacron and the protestors in Paris have agreed with the conclusion I reached two years ago,” Trump tweeted.

The Paris Agreement is fatally flawed because it raises the price of energy for responsible countries while whitewashing some of the worst polluters,” said Trump, referring to a global deal on the environment drafted in Paris in late 2015.

Earlier this week, Prime Minister Edouard Philippe decided to freeze planned increases to fuel taxes for at least six months in response to weeks of sometimes violent protests in big cities all over France, marking the first major U-turn by Macron’s administration in 18 months in office.
