Schwarzenegger and Macron discuss ‘environmental issues’


Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger posted a short video on social media Friday alongside the new French President, Emmanuel Macron, saying they were meeting to discuss “environmental issues” and a “green future.”

“I’m here with President Macron, we’re talking about environmental issues and a green future,” Schwarzenegger says in the video before handing it over to Macron, who he called a “great leader” on Twitter, to deliver a message.

“And now we will deliver together to make the planet great again,” Macron adds with a smile and a thumbs up.

Macron recycled Trump’s famous slogan after the White House announced the U.S. was withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement last month.

The phrase, “Make our planet great again,” first went viral after Macron gave his address from the Elysée Palace, where he also renewed an invitation to U.S. scientists, researchers, and entrepreneurs disappointed by the Trump administration’s decision to “come to France and work with us together” in pursuit of environmental solutions.

“I call on you to remain confident,” Macron said in a video on Twitter. “We will succeed because we are fully committed. Because wherever we live, whoever we are, we all share the same responsibility. Make our planet great again.”
