This is what we call a big blunder … US President Donald Trump, who regularly mocks the supposed blunders of his rival Joe Biden, was in turn illustrated on Saturday by a mistake by demoting his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron at the rank of “Prime Minister”.
During a campaign rally in the state of Michigan, the US president, campaigning for re-election, made the mistake of highlighting the accomplishments of his tenure. After discussing the old free trade agreement with Canada and Mexico, since renegotiated by him, Mr. Trump then gave his opinion on the Paris climate agreement, from which the United States withdrew after his election in 2016.
“Do you know what I also stopped? The Paris environmental agreement. I really like Prime Minister Macron but I asked him how the deal is going, they don’t really get there“said the Republican candidate.
“I saved you trillions of dollars, no one else would. I said it was a disaster, they basically wanted to take our wealth,” he added.
The US president and his French counterpart formed a close relationship shortly after Mr Macron’s election before relations between the two men deteriorated noticeably.
Donald Trump is currently holding meetings in several key states in an attempt to catch up in the polls on his Democratic competitor, Joe Biden, less than three weeks before the US presidential elections.
