At a campaign meeting in Michigan, the US president, campaigning for reelection, made the mistake of pointing out the accomplishments during 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 quit?” The Paris environmental agreement. I really like Prime Minister Macron, but I asked him how the agreement was progressing, they are not really getting 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 chaining 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.
