Macron Invites All Americans Disappointed With Trump To Flee To France

French President Macron invited American citizens - especially those with a higher education - who are disappointed with Trump's decision to pull out of the Paris accord, to help “make our planet great again” by moving to that bastion of liberal global values, France , where they will find "a second homeland."

In a short address to Americans following Trump's announcement to withdraw from the Paris climate accord, the French leader said that while he respects President Donald Trump’s decision, he believes it was a "mistake" and invited all Americans (ideally those with a college education) to come join him in France "to work together on concrete solutions, for our climate, our environment."

And, to show just how progressive he truly is, the French president called on all US "scientists, engineers responsible citizens who were disappointed by the decision by the President of the United States, I want to say that they will find in France a second homeland. I call on them: Come and work here with us. To work together on concrete solutions, for our climate, our environment."

If the world doesn’t tackle climate change, Macron says, our children will face a dystopian future punctuated by famine, wars and grinding poverty or in other words, he described reality in much of the developing world, especially those nations which the US and French military forces have decided represent geopolitical "national interests."

“It is not the future we want for our children…it is not the future we want for our world,” Macron said.

Some were quick to point out the self-serving nature of Macron's offer: after all if Macron's imagined exodus of American STEM graduates fall short of saving the planet, maybe they can do something about saving the French economy from years of socialist rule (and a regime in which Macron himself was a minister).

Some have also asked if Macron is so worried about the future of the world, why then did he claim – together with counterparts in Germany and Italy - that the agreement cannot be renegotiated, an option to which Russian leader Vladimir Putin seemed amenable. A cynic could allege that France (and its peers) are more focused on the benefits the existing arrangement affords them, than sitting down and doing everything in their power to come up with a new deal that is agreeable to all, even Trump, in order to "make the world great again." 

Macron’s full remarks are below:

Climate change is one of the major issues of our time. It is already changing our daily lives but it is global. Everyone is impacted and if we do nothing our children will know a world of migrations, of wars, of shortage… a dangerous world.


It is not the future we want for ourselves, it is not the future we want for our children, it is not the future  want for our world.


Today, the President of the United States Donald Trump announced his decision to withdraw the us from the Paris Agreement. I do respect this decision but I do think it is an actual mistake, both for the us and for our planet.


Tonight, I wish to tell the United States that France believes in you, the world believes in you, I know that you are a great nation, I know your history, our common history. 


To all scientists, engineers responsible citizens who were disappointed by the decision by the President of the United States, I want to say that they will find in France a second homeland. I call on them: Come and work here with us. To work together on concrete solutions, for our climate, our environment.


I can assure you France will not give up the fight. I can affirm clearly that the Paris agreement remains irreversible and will be implemented not just by France but by all the other nations. Over the coming hours, I will have the opportunity to speak with our main partners to define a common strategy and to launch new initiatives. I already know that I can count on them. I call on you to remain confident we will succeed because we are fully committed. Because wherever we live, whoever we are we all share the same responsibility: make our planet great again.

For those asking, as of this moment there are no long - or even short - lines outside the ten French consulates in the US, as Americans, even scientists, appear to be in no rush to take the French president on his offer.

Oedipus Macron is actually doing the right thing...get the Libturds out of America!

"children will face a dystopian future punctuated by famine, wars and grinding poverty "

Let's see here:

Dystopian future, check.
Famine (1/6 kids go hungry, I saw it on a billboard).
Wars, check.
Grinding poverty (true for many, unfortunately)

Old Oedipus has described America, for many people today.

Go to France from US on borrowed money to pay for the flight.Spend a fortune of more borrowed money to move the rest of your posessions by air or sea.Go on the dole in France when the heavily unionized economy prevents you from finding a job.Find that the dole is insufficient to service your debt.Then IF you find employment, find yourself chained by represssive bureaucracy.Then if you don't quit in frustration and go back on the dole find yourself paying one of the highest effective tax rates in the world.Sounds like a great opprotunity.Thanks Oedipus.

Please don't put ideas into Macron's head!If you tell him the productive ones will remain while he gets all the dindus and gibsmedats he will change the conditions of acceptance.We have an overabundance of Trump haters -- this is a perfect opportunity to get rid of them.Somebody tell the FSA, snowflakes, college students and their crazed teachers, etc., that France has better benefits and freebies.

Hey vermicelli dick, real engineers and true scientists are in short supply. It's careerist/tenure-seeking/greedy/empire-building engineers and pseudo-scientists that get ALL the environmental research money . They are the ones peddling th global warming scam for money.Then, too, there are the really stupid scientists and obtuse engineers. They follow the crowd. The crowd follows the money. The real engineers and true scientists don't get jobs or positions or tenure. They, of course, would not want to go to France because the government of France is in on the global warming scam.

I support fully Mamma's boy, Macron. Let the entire team at CNN. NBC and the MSM as well as Hollywood transport themselves to France. Ler them eat French patisserie, and enjoy being taxed at 90%, and live in fear of next terrorist attack. Macron insists that these are the things of live, we've got to get used to it. Finally we will all be free of feigned outrage, unending hysteria and snowflake tears. Bon debarras! Good riddance!

You're right, he's like totally discriminating against professional students with a major in food service industry and a minor in anthropology who've been going to college trying to try & learn something for going on twenty years now!He's a bigot!Take him out back to the guillotine! Give him the Kathy Griffin treatment! ;-)
