Donald Trump, fresh from posting possibly his most inaccurate tweet ever on Friday, swiftly followed up a day later with a complete misunderstanding of what the current protests in Paris are about.

As police in France clash with protesters angry at President Emmanuel Macron and France’s high taxes, the US President somehow concluded they were rallying against the Paris Climate Accords.

He tweeted: “The Paris Agreement isn’t working out so well for Paris. 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.”

There are no reports of protestors chanting “we want Trump” and the claim originated from a number of American conservatives earlier in the week, none of whom were in Paris.

Trump withdrew from the Paris Agreement on climate change in June of last year in a speech in which he claimed he “cares deeply about the environment”.
