Donald Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again” has become infamous – as it casually writes off the other 7.17 billion or so people that share the planet with America. But recently elected French president Emmanuel Macron is calling on Earth’s inhabitants to Make Our Planet Great Again – and he got together with Trump foe Arnold Schwarzenegger to throw a little shade at the American president. Schwarzenegger posted a video of himself and Macron, saying they were talking about a green future. Macron said they’d deliver together “to make the planet great again” – a reference to his new initiative to battle climate change regardless of Trump’s decision to yank America out of the Paris Agreement . Schwarzenegger described Macron as a great leader, a marked contrast on his view of his own country’s president.

I call on them: come and work here with us, to work together on concrete solutions for our climate, our environment .” (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3”; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’)); #MakeOurPlanetGreatAgain #MakeOurPlanetGreatAgain Posted by Emmanuel Macron on Thursday, June 1, 2017 Shortly after that he launched the Make Our Planet Great Again website, offering information for not only Americans but citizens of the world. Those interested in coming to France to work on climate change can submit their name and email address to receive information on coming. It appears Macron’s getting some big names on board to spread the message. Unless Trump wants a brain drain on his hands, maybe he should start paying attention to science . + Make Our Planet Great Again Via Mashable Images via Emmanuel Macron on Twitter and Gage Skidmore on Flickr
