Emmanuel Macron has posted a video of himself learning to say "Make the Planet great again".

The French leader has used the phrase before as a jibe at Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris global climate accord.

During his first trip to China since becoming president, Macron is trying to form an alliance with the world's second superpower to address environmental issues.

The video, posted to his Twitter account, showcases the informal relationships Macron claims to have with his staff as he jokes with them and snacks while his make-up is done.
