Police arrest 575 in Paris in latest anti-government protest

On Saturday, French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said violent outbreaks in Paris were "under control" despite ongoing disorderly acts he declared "totally unacceptable".

"Yes, we're very concerned with security. but we couldn't cancel the trip", Portuguese tourist Elizabet Monteero said.

The protests in France are not directly linked to the Paris climate agreement which was signed in 2015 and has since been abandoned by Mr Trump, to the dismay of French President Emmanuel Macron and other Western leaders.

The rumble of armoured police vans and the hiss of tear gas filled central Paris as French riot police fought to contain thousands of yellow-vested protesters.

"It's a catastrophe for commerce, it's a catastrophe for our economy", Le Maire told reporters as he walked around Paris while surveying the damage wrought by protesters.

Many shops were boarded up to avoid looting and street furniture and construction site materials have been removed to prevent them from being used as projectiles.

"It's with an vast sadness that we'll see our city partially brought to a halt, but your safety is our priority", said Mayor Anne Hidalgo. About 125,000 gilets jaunes took to the streets around France with a number of demands. The U.S. was way ahead of the curve on that and the only major country where emissions went down a year ago!

Government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux said earlier on LCI TV station he was "sure (Macron) will know how to find the path to the hearts of the French, speak to their hearts".

The Trump's statement referred to raging "Yellow vest" protests, named after the obligatory attribute of French drivers, which have been shaking both the mainland country and its overseas territories since November 17.

Some "yellow vest" activists, clad in their emblematic high-visibility road jackets, joined the Paris march after breaking off from their own demonstration. Macron, since returning from the G-20 meeting last weekend, has kept largely out of sight, a move that has puzzled supporters and critics.

The movement has spread beyond France's borders, with around 400 arrested at a "yellow vest" event in Brussels on Saturday and peaceful demonstrations taking place in Dutch towns. The policy use of such technology provided the President of France Emmanuel macron.

While Macron has since abandoned the fuel tax hike, protesters have made new demands to address other economic issues hurting workers, retirees and students. Trade unions and far-left parties have lashed out at perceived police brutality.

Groups of vandals tore steadily through some of the city's wealthiest neighbourhoods, smashing and burning items.

"We will do all we can so that today can be a day without violence, so that the dialogue that we started this week can continue in the best possible circumstances", he said on French television.

The Eiffel Tower and Louvre Museum reopened Sunday after closing for Saturday's rioting.

US President Donald Schrumpft, who is literally Hitler and strangles puppies in his spare time, certainly consorted with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin before writing the following hate tweets that single-handedly set the entire nation of France ablaze.
