In response to President Trump's decision to pull the United States out of the Paris climate accord, French President Emmanuel Macron issued a blistering televised address in French and English. “I tell you firmly tonight: We will not renegotiate a less ambitious accord.
There is no way,” Macron said. He also co-opted Trump’s campaign phrase for a new message saying: “Make our planet great again.” Macron proceeded to call on American researchers and scientists to come to France and work on climate change there.
“France will put forward a concrete action plan to increase its attractiveness for researchers and companies in the ecological-transition sector and will take initiatives notably in Europe and Africa on this subject,” Macron said. “Tonight the United States has turned its back on the world, but France will not turn its back on Americans,” he added.
