Macron had this to say, directly, to Trump today, following US dump of Paris Accord.

Let’s Make our Planet Great Again.

Today was disheartening. One could feel our planet, and our future, shudder. But the above—his respect for disagreement, his assured confidence in the Paris Accord…cheered me up. 
A few relephant quotes (pas via Monsieur Macron):
“Can we withdraw President Trump from the US climate?”
“When the last tree is cut, the last river poisoned, and the last fish dead, we will discover that we can’t eat money.”
“Yes, the planet got destroyed. But for a beautiful moment in time we created a lot of value for shareholders.”
“It imposes absolutely no practical or legal constraint on [Trump’s] actions — not on trade policy, not on domestic energy policy, nothing.” ~ Dave Roberts writes. “That means all talk of Paris being a ‘bad deal’ for the US, or hurting US trade, or affecting the US coal industry in any way, is nonsense.”
