French President Emmanuel Jean-Michel Frédéric Macron addressed a joint session of Congress today and took the opportunity to fire a warning shot after taking aim at POTUS agenda.

The bromance President Donald Trump was trying to fake Macron may have already ended after Macron took POTUS swipes.

He criticized Trump's core political philosophies during his speech, including a push for nationalism and trade protectionism. Macron also took jabs at Trump’s anti-climate change stance, and for exiting the historic Paris Climate Agreement.

You can play with fear and anger, but these don't construct anything. Anger only freezes and weakens us, Macron said, about the use of fear and anger in political rhetoric. Closing the door to the world will not stop the evolution. It will not douse but inflame, the fears of our citizens.
