PARIS (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump is taking another swipe on Twitter at his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron prompted by Macron's woes over violent protests against fuel taxes.

"I am glad that my buddy @EmmanuelMacron plus the protestors in Paris have agreed with the conclusion I reached a couple of years ago," Trump tweeted late on Tuesday.

"The Paris Agreement is fatally flawed as it enhances the price of energy for responsible countries while whitewashing some of the worst polluters," said Trump, mentioning a global deal for the environment drafted in Paris in late 2019.

Earlier today, French Pm Edouard Philippe thought we would suspend planned increases to fuel taxes for not less than six months time in reaction to weeks of sometimes violent protests, marking the primary major U-turn by Macron's administration in Eighteen months in office.
