Paris tense ahead of protests

Protesters threw flares and other projectiles, and were repeatedly pushed back by tear gas.

"The Paris Agreement isn't working out so well for Paris", Trump tweeted Saturday morning. Subway stations in the centre of town were shut down.

"The protesters want President Trump because some of them recognize that in 2016 the American people found the courage to elect a president who would be willing to stand up against the united forces of Marxism, globalism and political correctness".

Macron's government warned that Saturday's "yellow vest" protests in Paris will be hijacked by "radicalized and rebellious" crowds and become the most unsafe yet after three weeks of demonstrations.

Nominally, the demonstrations began last month over a proposed environmental fuel tax, directly inspired by the Paris climate accords of 2015, under which France promised to cut its carbon emissions by 75 percent. The national gendarme service posted a video on Twitter of police tackling a protester and confiscating his risky material, which appeared to be primarily a tennis racket.

Offshoot movements have emerged elsewhere, and yellow-vest protests are planned on Saturday in Belgium and the Netherlands.

Anticipating a repeat of last weekend's violence, monuments including the Eiffel Tower and numerous French capital's metro stations remained closed with about 8,000 police on the streets of Paris with tens of thousands more deployed across the country.

Police installed special reinforced barricades in the posh streets around the presidential Elysee palace.

Fearing increasing violence, hundreds of businesses planned to close Saturday, preferring to lose a key holiday shopping day rather than have stores smashed and looted, like they were a week ago when protests over rising taxes turned into a riot.

Others lined up for police searches and bag checks throughout central Paris.

Authorities deployed barricade-busting armored vehicles and 8,000 police in the capital alone; nationwide, some 89,000 security forces fanned out to deter or confront troublemakers expected at multiple protests.

Since his election in 2016, Trump has cultivated a fractious relationship with most Western leaders, regularly clashing with them over the role of supranational bodies such as the WTO, or the International Criminal Court, and issues like trade, emissions and immigration.

"We're asking him to meet us to negotiate on spending power, which is what underpins all this anger", Mr Cauchy said. "Me, I'm not here to break things because I have four children", said protester Myriam Diaz. "People don't want to stop because we want the President to go".

Cyril, a garbage truck driver in Normandy who earns 1,430 euros ($1,625) a month, said Macron's mistake was trying to reform France too quickly.

Apart from Paris, there were demonstrations in several other cities on Saturday including Lyon, Bordeaux, Toulouse, Marseille and Grenoble.

Almost 1,400 people were detained across France, according to Interior Minister Christophe Castaner. In total, Castaner claimed that 125,000 people had taken part in the Yellow Vest protests across the country.

"The movement has given birth to a monster", Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said Friday as he detailed security measures at a news conference.

Since the anti-government unrest began on November 17 in reaction to a sharp increase in diesel taxes, four people have been killed in protest-related accidents. Christmas markets, national football matches and countless other events have been cancelled or duisrupted by the protests.

Demonstrators waving French flags and wearing the movement's signature neon vests gathered before dawn Saturday near the Arc de Triomphe, which was damaged in last week's rioting.

US President Donald Trump said the protests in Paris were "very sad" and called on the French government to cancel a 2015 global agreement to tackle climate change. 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.
