Trump Mocks Macron: Glad "Yellow Vest" Protesters Agree With Me

•, by Tyler Durden

With the memory of Macron's subtle diss last month during a speech to world leaders at the Arc de Triomphe still clearly fresh in his mind, Trump gloated on twitter that he was "glad that my friend @EmmanuelMacron and the protestors 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." Trump famously withdrew the US from the Paris Accord last year over terms that he said benefited China's economy at the expense of the US.
