The White House released an animated explainer to go with Donald Trump’s speech about pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement Thursday. A day later, the French Ministry countered with its own version of the video.
The French version goes through the White House video (embedded above) frame by frame with corrections and fact-checks — and it manages to do so in only 40 seconds.
The first change is renaming the Trump administration’s video from “The Paris Accord is a bad deal for America” to “Leaving the Paris Accord is a bad deal for America and the world.”
It continues to counter each point the White House made about jobs, a “U.N. slush fund,” Barack Obama’s negotiation skills, and research findings.
It even uses the same music throughout the animation.
This comes after French president Emmanuel Macron corrected Trump’s MAGA catchphrase to “Make Our Planet Great Again.”
France is on fire.
