Two days after United States President Donald Trump criticised the French government over the violent 'yellow vest' protests, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian has warned the US President not to meddle in France's internal matters.

On Saturday, Trump had condemned the ongoing fourth weekend of yellow vest protests across France which are being staged against the hike in fuel taxes, linking it to the "ridiculous and extremely expensive" Paris Agreement.

"Very sad day & night in Paris. Maybe it's time to end the ridiculous and extremely expensive Paris Agreement and return money back to the people in the form of lower taxes? The US was way ahead of the curve on that and the only major country where emissions went down last year!" he had tweeted. Responding to the same, Le Drian said: "I am telling Donald Trump, we do not take part in the American debates, let us live our life of a nation. Do not interfere in French politics."
