Postado Junho 25, 2017

France's President Emmanuel Macron arrives to welcome Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahayan, prior to a meeting, at the Elysee Palace, in Paris, Wednesday, June 21, 2017.

"Make America great again" was Mr Trump's presidential campaign slogan.

The words "With President Macron, a great leader!" - which President Trump has said about leaders such as Argentinian President Mauricio Macri and German Chancellor Angela Merkel - remained in a banner across the screen throughout the 10-second clip. "Glad to work on it with @schwarzenegger".

Prior to arriving in the French capital, Schwarzenegger delivered a speech on climate change at the Austrian World Summit. "One man can't stop our clean energy revolution".

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, in a phone call with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, has criticized the U.S. for undermining the Syrian government's offensive against Islamic State fighters.

Macron, for his part, has vowed to uphold the Paris climate agreement after Trump announced that the USA would pull out of it.

Mr Macron - who along with a number of other European leaders has decried the decision to have America withdraw from the deal - has called on U.S. scientists to emigrate to France.

In a video on social media, Mr Macron is joined by the Terminator star as he vows to "make the planet great again".

"Because no one has introduced me to his legitimate successor", said the French president, who took office last month. Over the years, he has tweeted remarks denying its existence, including once posting, "The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make US manufacturing non-competitive".

"Honestly, I haven't asked him", Spicer said.

Macron has been pushing to maintain momentum generated by a global agreement to combat climate change reached in Paris in 2015, after President Donald Trump pulled the United States out, drawing condemnation from other leaders. The two are set to launch a campaign for an worldwide pact to safeguard the environment on Saturday alongside other world leaders.
