No sooner had French President Emmanuel Macron finished a televised address Thursday night in which he excoriated President Trump's decision to pull the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Change Accord than social media went viral with rave reviews.

The White House, however, made it clear to Newsmax the following day that Trump doesn't care what the newly-inaugurated French president thinks.

"I think that the President has made clear since Day One that his job is to protect the interest of this country and our American citizens," Press Secretary Sean Spicer told us, "As he said yesterday, he was elected to represent Pittsburgh, not Paris."

Spicer's salvo came hours after Macron, speaking in fluent English, called on "all scientists, engineers, entreprenuers, responsible citizens who were disappointed by the decision of the United States" to "come and work here with us."

"They will find in France a second homeland," he said.

Macron is expected to emerge as a big winner in French parliamentary elections this Sunday. As polls show the president gaining popularity, his months-old En Marche! (Forward!) Party grows increasingly confident of winning an outright majority of seats in the National Assembly (Congress).
