Macron Shows Up Strong On International Stage

French President Emmanuel Macron followed his purposeful – firm handshake with United States President Donald Trump with a calling out of Russian propaganda media during a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the Palace of Versailles:

Russia Today (RT) and Sputnik, were organs of influence during this campaign which, on several occasions, told lies about myself and my campaign. … Russia Today and Sputnik did not behave as media organizations and journalists, but as agencies of influence and propaganda, lying propaganda — no more, no less.

Macron also released a statement on President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement an excerpt from his comments:

…Everyone is impacted and if we do nothing our children will know a world of migrations, of wars, of shortage – a dangerous world. It’s not a future we want for ourselves, it’s not a future we want for our children, it’s not a future we want for our world. Today, the President of the United States – Donald Trump announced his decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement. I do respect his decision, but I do think it is an actual mistake for the US and our planet.

Macron would continue:

…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, I call on them, come and work here with us to work together on concrete solutions for our planet, our environment. I can assure you France will not give up the fight.
