Trump, France's Macron call to congratulate May on election

Trump, France's Macron call to congratulate May on election

French President Emmanuel Macron launched a website Thursday aimed at combatting climate change Thursday, inviting American scientists to work in France following President Trump's withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement. The key plank is to build on an overhaul of the labour market that the previous Socialist government began - measures that led to huge protests past year. "We need to change politics and I think he will do that". No one now seems to doubt that Macron will enjoy a large majority after the parliamentary elections, the first round of which will take place this weekend.

"But today it's very clear: we have to give the government a chance so that they can work for France".

Turnout in the first round is estimated to be 54 percent.

The main victim of what many call the "Macron revolution" will be the Socialist Party (PS), which was in power until a month ago with president Francois Hollande.

He told the rally that Philippe, budget minister Gerald Darmanin and himself "chose their country over their party".

"I do know how your new president now has chose to jeopardize your budget [and] your initiatives as he is extremely skeptical about climate change", Macron explained. Entrepreneurs, students, and even entire organizations are invited to apply, as long as they share an interest in climate action.
