US President Donald Trump has criticized his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron in the wake of recent major anti-government achievements over high taxes.
Trump wrote several announcements about the demonstrations on his Twitter account and claimed the protests a direct result of Paris’s climate agreement, as France is signed, but the United States is not.
“I’m glad that my friend @EmmanuelMacron and the Protestants in Paris have agreed with the conclusion I reached two years ago. The Paris agreement is deadly wrong because it increases the energy price for responsible countries while whitewashing some of the worst polluters in world, “wrote Trump in Tweets
The US President also retarded Conservative Pundit Charlie Kirk, who falsely claimed France is a socialist country, the riot in the country did not receive any media attention and the protesters shouted: “we want a trump “.
Trumps tweets come as the French government mulls change into a wealth tax that partially led to massive protests across the country in recent weeks.
Governor Benjamin Griveaux told local media on Wednesday that changes in wealth tax could be reversed if it failed.

“If a measure we have taken, which costs public money, turns out not to work, if it does not work well, we are not stupid “We would change it,” said Griveaux.
The protests, which began on November 17, were mostly about record prices on the pump, with the cost of diesel increasing by about 20 percent over the past year to an average of 1.49
In spite of the protests, President Macron announced additional fuel charges that came into force on January 1, 2019, in a move he said it was necessary to combat climate change and protect the environment.
The decision gave triggering the so-called “yellow west protest movement”, which takes its name from the high visibility-clad participants adopted as a symbol of their complaint.
Initially backed by people in small towns and rural France where most people go by car, carved the protests in a broader motion against Macron’s perceived bias in favor of the elite and the wealthy urban residents.

At the same time, the government proposed a VAT tax that ease the tax burden on many of the nation’s richest citizens, leading to the criticism that Macro was a “President of the Rich”.  The French government forced Tuesday’s planned increases to fuel taxes for at least six months and said no tax was worth threatening the country’s unity.
Increases in the cost of fuel and electricity, which would also come into force as of January 1, 2019, would also be canceled for three months in the winter.
The protests eventually led to violence between demonstrators and authorities, with shops robbed and cars fooled in plush neighborhoods around the famous Champs Elysees Avenue in the capital, Paris.
In total, four people were killed and hundreds injured in protests.
