Macron Claims His “Charm” Changed Trump’s Mind

Looks like French leader Macron is getting a bit too full of himself.

The French president recently made the (almost certainly false) claim that his “charms” were able to change Trump’s mind on climate change.

We highly doubt it…

From Fox News

French President Emmanuel Macron says he worked his charm on President Donald Trump during the U.S. leader’s visit to Paris – so much so that he may have changed Trump’s mind on climate change.

Trump and Macron — who said his interaction with Trump was carefully calculated — discussed their main point of contention: U.S. withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement.

Macron told French news outlet Le Journal du Dimanche that Trump “listened” to him when the two discussed climate change, adding: “He understood the reason for my position, notably the link between climate change and terrorism.”

The presidents spoke “in detail” about what could change Trump’s mind, allowing the U.S. to rejoin the landmark climate agreement in the coming months, Macron told JDD.

While in Paris, Trump remained non-committal about the U.S. rejoining the climate agreement, telling Macron, “if it happens that will be wonderful, and if it doesn’t that will be OK too.”
