U.S. Withdraws From Paris Accord

Excellent. It is refreshing to see a president putting America’s interests first again.

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump announced his decision to withdraw the US from the Paris climate accord Thursday, a major step that fulfills a campaign promise while seriously dampening global efforts to curb global warming.

The decision amounts to a rebuttal of the worldwide effort to pressure Trump to remain a part of the agreement, which 195 nations signed onto. Foreign leaders, business executives and Trump’s own daughter lobbied heavily for him to remain a part of the deal, but ultimately lost out to conservatives who claim the plan is bad for the United States.
“In order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the United States will withdraw from the Paris climate accord but being negotiations to reenter either the Paris accord or an entirely new transaction under terms that are fair to the United States,” Trump said from the White House Rose Garden.
“We’re getting out. And we will start to renegotiate and we’ll see if there’s a better deal. If we can, great. If we can’t, that’s fine,” he added.

    Well done Mr. President!

    Well Done!

    You continue to impress me with your bold decision making.

    Excellent report on jobs numbers today as well!   Economy can finally roar ahead when we throw out the socialist dreck.

    I think President Trump made some great points in his speech for his reasons to pull out of the non-binding Paris Accord.  Good job to pick the low hanging fruit and avoid the questionable data argument that many claim is “settled science.”  Especially liked the “if the Democrats stop being obstructionists and instead want to work us” line but I think the establishment Republicans aren’t much better.

    One more campaign promise fulfilled.  Keep up the good work.
