President Macron Responds to Trumps Decision to withdraw from Paris Agreement on Climate Change

All I can say is well done President Macron! A clear message/commitment by France representing signatories to the Paris accord and delivered in the most effective way possible NOT to Trump but directly to the American people-in pure English; this should be the approach to be followed where possible on critical policy matters affecting the United States particularly where there are differences with the current administration to ensure clarity/transparency. More importantly it demonstrates that President Macron is keen to stand up/be heard on key policy issues based on values whether it relates to defending principles of  liberal democracy or protecting the environment for future generations all within the context of interconnected / interdependent world. Great signs for a great leader – so “Marche” on Macron!
