France is ready for a new meeting of the leaders of the Normandy format (Ukraine, France, Germany, and Russia), where new prerequisites for the settlement of the situation in Ukraine's east should be developed, French President Emmanuel Macron has said. "Glad to work on it with @schwarzenegger".

The ceremony comes weeks after US President Donald Trump announced that he would pull the United States out of the Paris Agreement. As seen across social media on June 23, Schwarzenegger made a decision to continue trolling Trump, this time joining forces with the president of France.


As for Mr Schwarzeneggar, he is a noted supporter of climate-friendly policies and in a video posted earlier this month he said that "one man can not destroy our progress". Schwarzenegger heads up R20 Regions of Climate Action, a non-profit organization geared toward helping build a greener world economy.

After his meeting with Macron, Schwarzenegger met Saturday with former United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and high court judges from multiple countries to discuss the possibility of a global pact for environmental protection, ABC News said.

"One man can't stop our clean energy revolution".

Shortly after Trump announced that the USA was withdrawing from the Paris accord, Schwarzenegger released a video denouncing the decision.

Macron's English is a little off, but the burn is on-target for anyone familiar with Trump's campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again". The former California governor notes on the vid: "I'm here with President Macron. And one man can't go back in time - only I can do that", he added, referencing his time-traveling cyborg character in Terminator.

Macron previously said he would seek sanctions on Poland, whose nationalist-minded, eurosceptic government has angered the European Union with its efforts to impose greater control over judges and state media and its refusal to take in any migrants. "I'm not sure about that", she said.
