Macron ruthlessly trolls Trump over Paris Accord exit, Twitter follows

View the original article:

President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord came as little surprise, given it was one of his main campaign promises. Newly-elected French President Emmanuel Macron was well-prepared for the news.

As part of his remarks deriding The Donald’s decision to pull out of the agreement, Macron added insult to injury by inviting “engineers, entrepreneurs [and] responsible citizens who were disappointed by the decision of the United States” to come to France, which he said would act as “their second homeland.”

“This evening, the United States turned its back on the world,” Macron said in a statement on Thursday. “But France will not turn its back on the Americans.”

 He continued to heap scorn on the POTUS via Trump’s preferred medium, Twitter.

Macron is already being positioned as a ‘David’ to Trump’s ‘Goliath’ on the international stage, especially following ‘that handshake.’

The French president has certainly made a name for himself in the month since his election and is already gathering online troops in the meme wars.

Despite acting as Trump’s main platform for his unique brand of tirades, personal attacks and populist rhetoric, Twitter has proven to be a double-edged sword for the POTUS, especially when climate change is the cause du jour.

Trump’s highly-controversial and widely lamented decision even forced Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein‏ to publish his first-ever tweet, despite joining the social media network in 2011.
