Macron: "The U.S. has turned its back on the world, but France will not turn its back on Americans"

""

Macron, who made a televised address in French and English, said Trump had "committed an error for the interests of his country, his people and a mistake for the future of our planet."

"France believes in you (the U.S.), the world believes in you, but don't be mistaken on climate; there is no plan B because there is no planet B," Macron said.

In a separate address in English, Macron responded to Trump's Make America Great Again slogan, saying, "Make the Planet Great Again!" Macron called on U.S. researchers and scientists disappointed by Trump's decision to come to work in France to fight climate change.

"Tonight the United States has turned its back on the world, but France will not turn its back on Americans," he said.

I hope they don't turn their backs on us. I hope they know we are with them 100% and are deeply concerned. I'm so grateful that there are all the protests scheduled for tomorrow to show the rest of the world how we feel and hopefully this latest will make for an even greater turnout.

1. It's just not fair

Canada has Trudeau. France has Macron. Germany has Merkle. We have the Orange Twitter Maistro.

3. It's not fair to the sane among us...

...but enough 'Murkins are always ready to support pure evil that stealing the election is within striking distance.

About half of the U.S. voters are emanations from hell.

We have laid back and told ourselves that the marketplace of ideas would solve everything.

It doesn't. Not any more than the 'free market' brings prosperity to everyone.

We should have been fighting every piece of propaganda, tooth and nail.

4. I'm really starting to like this guy!

In a way, Trump probably gave him an assist in his election.
