President Trump has decided to withdraw the United States from the international climate accord of the Paris Agreement. European allies have been begging Trump to not ditch the pact last week but the White House responded that they were deciding to get rid of it. This means that:
TRUMP IS DOING EXACTLY WHAT HE PROMISED.
Take a look at what he said about this on Dec. 6th.
1. Here’s why this matters: This is the biggest thing that he could do to screw up Obama’s legacy. It shows the rest of the world that nothing that Obama did mattered.
2. Here’s why it happened: According to Axios, a letter was sent by 22 Republican Senators – w/ Mitch McConnel – that asked for a clean exit with the Paris Accords. Trump has been working with confidants saying his instinct was to pull out.
3. Here is what Trump said about it today.
“I will be announcing my decision on the Paris Accord over the next few days. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
It’s exactly what he promised he would do. It’s not shocking.
Here is what Fox News is saying about this.
