News reports today show French officials blaming Trump and Russia for escalating the protests in France. In this case, is Trump a scapegoat to blame for their inept responses and foolish policy or do you believe Trump is intentionally fanning the flames?

'Leave our nation be': France tells Trump not to interfere with country's politics after US President used riots to attack Paris climate change agreement


www.msn.com/en-xl/northamerica/top-stories/leave-our-nation-be-france-tells-trump-not-to-interfere-with-countrys-politics-after-us-president-used-riot s-to-attack-paris-climate-change-agreement/ar-BBQHcrf




France's Foreign Minister has urged Donald Trump not to interfere in French politics after the US president posted tweets about the protests rocking the country and attacked the Paris climate agreement.

'We do not take domestic American politics into account and we want that to be reciprocated,' Jean-Yves Le Drian told LCI television.

'I say this to Donald Trump and the French president says it too: leave our nation be.'

Trump had on Saturday posted two tweets referring to the 'yellow vest' anti-government protests that have swept France since mid-November and sparked rioting in Paris.

'Very sad day & night in Paris. Maybe it's time to end the ridiculous and extremely expensive Paris Agreement and return money back to the people in the form of lower taxes?' he suggested.

Trump had earlier posted: 'The Paris Agreement isn't working out so well for Paris. Protests and riots all over France.

'People do not want to pay large sums of money, much to third world countries (that are questionably run), in order to maybe protect the environment. Chanting 'We Want Trump!' Love France.'

The protests in France are not directly linked to the Paris climate agreement which was signed in 2015 and has since been abandoned by Trump, to the dismay of French President Emmanuel Macron and other Western leaders.

Spurred by rising fuel prices - in part due to tax hikes aimed at helping France shift to a lower-carbon economy - the 'yellow vest' protests have grown into a broad movement against Macron's policies and governing style.





In my opinion, the French government is using the "Climate" as the excuse for their policy so why are they trying to shift blame on that one? Russia, sure I bet they are as propaganda is what they do.




In France, authorities have also launched an investigation into social media activity from accounts allegedly drumming up support for the protests, sources told AFP.

According to Britain's Times newspaper, hundreds of online accounts linked to Russia were used to stoke the demonstrations.

Citing analysis by New Knowledge, a cybersecurity company, the Times said the accounts spread disinformation and used pictures of injured protesters from other events to enhance a narrative of brutality by French authorities.

April '17 it's not exactly new. Why would this surprise anyone?

Let me explain, Macron won the election Hillary didn't if you say things like "this is what America would have looked like if Hillary won" it makes you come across as if you wouldn't have accepted a legal election. Get what I'm hinting at?

Yeah, right. They blame Trump and Russia for the stupid blunders they made. I can believe a lot of liberals believing this. Why did they elect that moron to run their country?

If Macaroni had said this about the Tman, I would have said for Macaroni to suck it. So I have to reciprocate this with the Tman. Worry about the US Tman, and can the inflammatory tweets for christ's sake.

Because the French in France are just like the French here in Canada.

Lazy, self-serving, indolent and greedy.

They routinely vote for far left idiots because they are idiots themselves and will vote for whomever promises them the most free stuff and the laziest lifestyle.

The French. Gods tragic mistake.

It's a fact, soon anything that happens locally, regionally, nationally or globally can be blamed on Trump and Russia.

Think about it, if the Russians hadn't got Trump elected these riots would not have happened.

Obviously

Except Trump wasnt really speaking to French politics. He was speaking to the idiocy of the Paris Accords.

At the end of the day my disgust and contempt for ALL French prevents me from ever agreeing with them.

They are a blight on my country and are singlehandedly doing all they can to ruin this nation.

I detest the French on every level, right down to that disgusting abortion they call Poutine.

Burn France, Burn!!!

No.

I'm illustrating that France is in turmoil because a socialist/globalist is in power.

I further use the point that Hillary, being a socialist/globalist would have caused the same turmoil.

Except he equated the riots to French policy as well as the climate accord so it WAS political. I don't mind the French...I mean we have a place near Angoleme and the peeps there are really nice. They just have no money to spend on themselves with all the taxes. And they all hate Parisians. Sort of like how most Americans hate New Yorkers and LA peeps.

Fair enough point.

I'll never concede on my disgust and loathing of the French though. Hat might be a little strong as a descriptive but not by much.

If I could I'd deport every one of those s-bags out of my country. Biggest mistake the English ever made in Canada was letting those surrender monkeys stay after the English kicked their butts.

Should have forcibly removed every one of them from Canada at the time and sent them home to France.

This country would be in far better shape culturally, politically and economically without the French parasites

Figures.

If an elderly woman's soup is cold the MSM will blame Trump and attack his policies.

Trump makes a legitimate statement about the Paris Accord ( which is certainly a bone of contention among the yellow vests ), and he's a dictator.

And Macron has had plenty of criticism over Trump's approach:

Fr ance's Macron takes aim at Trump agenda in pointed speech to Congress

Macron says Brexit cannot divide EU, criticises Trump's isolationism

I hope Trump has people in France trying to take down the globalist, if i was president, I would

Have someone there, with a finger wave, saying, "Oh no, Macron just didn't go there"

or should i type

"Oh non, Macron n'est tout simplement pas allé là-bas"

Because the right wing would never have accepted her? Your no seems to be a yes sweetheart.
I still don't get why so many Americans seem to think the protests are against socialism? There are people among that protesters who want more social security payments not less, more money for retired people and so on. I haven't heard a single one say "free us from our healthcare"...

The protests are against policies that the Macon government has put in place.


I'm saying that Hillary and the left would have done worse with their policies had they been in power.

No not really. Macron doesn't really have anything to do with the 40%+ taxes the French are facing. And we'll (thankfully) never know what policies would have come from Hillary.
Reforms are needed in France. Macron just does what should have been done a long time ago.
