Paris - French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian says U.S. President Donald Trump should not comment on France’s domestic affairs, notably nationwide protests that began over fuel tax hikes meant to wean the nation off fossil fuels.

President Emmanuel Macron withdrew the planned increase last week in a failed bid to appease sometimes violent protesters.

Trump has tweeted twice on the issue, saying in one tweet this weekend that “the Paris agreement isn’t working out so well for Paris.” It was a reference to the 2015 Paris climate accord, which the U.S. is leaving and which Macron has championed worldwide.

Le Drian said on LCI TV on Sunday: “We don’t take part in American debates. Let us live our own national life.”

He says Macron has told Trump the same thing.

Sound advice. Trump and his buddies have the right to remain silent. They should practice exercising that right. They'll need it soon.

Bottom line, Trump was right. Climate accords are harmful to the masses. Only elitists gain. You guys all mocked him but who was right?

The truth hurts buddy.
