US President Donald Trump has thrown his support behind the Yellow Vest protests in France stating that French President Macron should follow his lead and abandon the Paris Climate Change Agreement.

President Trump tweeted

“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?”

Despite the US leaving the Paris agreement, it was in fact the only developed country whose emissions decreased last year despite a record economic growth under President Trump’s tenure.

The protests and riots in France were initially sparked by President Macron increasing taxes on fuel to decease carbon emissions but they have since morphed into a larger rebellion against Macron’s globalist agenda.

It’s believed that French politicians want President Trump to stop interfering in their affairs but President Trump isn’t exactly known for taking commands lightly.

This is despite the fact the French President Macron has publicly excoriate President Trump over his own statements and policies.
