French President Emmanuel Macron is offering refuge to American liberals upset at President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement.
In a video posted to Twitter, speaking in English, Macron said:
“I wish to tell the United States: France believes in you. The world believes in you. I know that you are a great nation. I know your history, our common history.”
“If you’re wondering how to get into France, you can either be a Syrian [jihadi] or an American climate scientist.”
“To all scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, responsible citizens who were disappointed by the decision of the president of the United States, I want to say that they will find in France a second homeland.
