“The Paris Agreement isn’t working out so well for Paris,” Trump tweeted Saturday morning. “Protests and riots all over France. People do not want to pay large sums of money, much to third world countries (that are questionably run), in order to maybe protect the environment. Chanting ‘We Want Trump!’ Love France.”

Trump’s tweet comes as French police detained more than

200 people in Paris

and fired tear gas on protestors during a fourth weekend of demonstrations.

The movement began as a rebuke of the country’s fuel price hikes and evolved to a protest against the cost of living pressures and anger at French President Emmanuel Macron’s government.

In his tweet Saturday, Trump also reiterated that Paris protesters have been chanting “we want Trump” — a

claim that remains unfounded

.

Trump

announced last year that

he was withdrawing the United States from the Paris climate accord.
