Trump Announces US Withdrawal from Paris Climate Accord
« on: June 02, 2017, 12:21:44 AM »

President Donald Trump said Thursday he is pulling the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement signed by his predecessor, Barack Obama, but will try to negotiate a better deal to benefit American businesses and taxpayers.

Ending days of speculation about what course he would take, Trump announced he is ending U.S. compliance with nonbinding portions of the Paris agreement immediately, while also calling for talks to come up with "a deal that's fair."

"We're getting out," Trump said, as an invited audience in the White House Rose Garden applauded enthusiastically.

“The Paris climate accord is simply the latest example of Washington entering into an agreement that damages the United States,” Trump said. "...As of today the United States will cease all implementation of the non-binding accord.”
