French Pres. Emmanuel Macron Trolls Trump With ‘Make Our Planet Great Again’ Website

French President Emmanuel Macron launched a website Thursday aimed at combatting climate change, inviting American scientists to work in France following President Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement.

The website’s name —“Make Our Planet Great Again” — is a play on Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again.”

“Faced with the climatic skepticism of the new government of the United States, President Emmanuel Macron invited American scientists to come work in France,” the website reads.




The website also touts France’s science and technology sectors in an apparent sales pitch to American scientists.

“You may know our research hubs, such as La Sorbonne or Paris-Saclay. These are the places you have to come work in to develop new initiatives for our planet,” the page says.

The newly elected French president debuted his play on Trump’s slogan in a video criticizing Trump’s decision to pull the U.S. out of the climate accord.
