France’s liberal leader Emmanuel Macron tried every trick in the book to try to persuade President Trump to stay in the horrific Paris Climate Agreement.
He tried posting corny memes on Twitter.
Macron even claimed he was making progress in changing Trump’s mind on Climate Change using his “charm.”
However it was not to be.
President Trump must have broken Macron’s liberal heart when he gave official notice to the U.N. that the United States is OUT of the Paris Climate Agreement.

Today, the United States submitted a communication to the United Nations, in its capacity as depositary for the Paris Agreement, regarding the U.S. intent to withdraw from the Paris Agreement as soon as it is eligible to do so, consistent with the terms of the Agreement.
As the President indicated in his June 1 announcement and subsequently, he is open to re-engaging in the Paris Agreement if the United States can identify terms that are more favorable to it, its businesses, its workers, its people, and its taxpayers.
The United States supports a balanced approach to climate policy that lowers emissions while promoting economic growth and ensuring energy security.
We will continue to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions through innovation and technology breakthroughs, and work with other countries to help them access and use fossil fuels more cleanly and efficiently and deploy renewable and other clean energy sources, given the importance of energy access and security in many nationally determined contributions.
