Pres. Trump: US withdraws from Paris Climate deal

“The Paris Accord disadvantages the United States to the exclusive benefit of other countries, leaving American workers, who I love, and taxpayers, to absorb the costs in terms of lost jobs, lower wages, shuttered factories and vastly diminished economic production.” — President Donald Trump, June 1, 2017

Fulfilling his campaign promise “to put American workers first,” President Donald Trump has announced the United States’ exit from the Paris Climate Change pact entered into by his predecessor Barack Obama — who imperially bypassed seeking senate authorization to enter into the deal that hamstrings the U.S. Trump left open the possibility of a renegotiation that’s fair to America.

Declaring “I was elected to represent the citizens in Pittsburgh, not Paris,” President Trump took aim at the costly Climate Change restrictions imposed on American citizens, their jobs and the U.S. economy.

“As of today, the United States will cease all implementation of the nonbinding Paris Accord,” Trump said during a White House Rose Garden announcement. The president noted the agreement disadvantaged the U.S. “to the exclusive benefit of other countries,” leaving American businesses and taxpayers to absorb the cost.

    The leftist loons will go nuts. How dare the president of the USA do what is best for America. Great scientists like the pope and Al Gore may have to turn off their air conditioning. Cool aid drinkers are spilling on themselves.

      The secular lefties are going nuts. They’re even invoking the pope, their favorite Communist and global warming emissary.

  2. Conservative Since Birth says:

    Makes me happy! Nobody owns him so he can do what’s best for the U.S. He can renegotiate this scam in 2020 and says he’d do what’s best for this country.

    He wasn’t influenced by his daughter and son-in-law, who didn’t appear in the Rose Garden to hear his speech. Even while President Trump was still speaking, Obama was giving the media his two cents. His “legacy” is disappearing before his very evil eyes.

    The 10 Dumbest Reactions to Trump Quitting the Paris Climate Accord

  4. Michael Bryan says:

    You mean left wing loons like Exxon, Shell, Cargill, IBM, and Goldman Sachs, all of whom opposed Trump’s move? Wake up! The Paris Accord was good for the American economy (the clean-energy and -tech sectors are the fastest growing in our economy) and good for American global leadership. Republicans used to care about such things as American economic competitiveness and our role as the world’s leader. Now all they seem to care about is the massaging the vanity and catering to the ignorance of the Cheeto Messiah.

    I wonder if the reason this post makes no effort to explain or defend Trump’s actions is that you really can offer no rational defense of him other than it was what he promised during the election? How many positions Trump took during the election has he now abandoned? Most of them; and this should have been one of them.

    Go President TRUMP!!!!! Great decision!

    To all who are screaming foul – follow the money!!! This has nothing to do with climate.

  6. Saguaro Sam says:

    This so-called climate agreement was merely the way to solidify one-world government.

    But if Obama had his way, Americans would be regulated back into the stone age. The man who pretends to want to level the playing field really wants to bulldoze America.

    Al Gore, the bloated fraudster, is a one man carnival act.

    And of course pope frankie has to weigh in because he’s a socialist puppet.

    Interesting as to how many of these people have no advanced degrees in the subject matter or experience in the real world.

    Trump must be under a Lot of pressure because Ivanka and Jared were Climate Change believers.
    The Kushners failed to show up in the Rose Garden for the announcement today.
    Remember that Ivanka escorted Al Gore into Trump Tower to meet with DJT just days after the election.

      It’s difficult to buck your family, especially when they are trusted advisers in a country populated by looney leftists who want to see you out of office. But they are not right on this issue and I’m happy to see Pres. Trump going it (mostly) alone on this very defining matter. When it turned out that Al Gore’s predictions of massive global turmoil brought on by global warming were incorrect, the libs rushed to rename this hoax “climate change,” which covers all errors in forecasting.
      My next door neighbor, who was angry over the Trump/Pence sign in my front yard surprised me today by coming to the door and telling me he wished he’d voted for Trump!! I started laughing and he said, “No. Really.” He told me he is appreciating Donald Trump more with each passing day. Imagine that.
