President Trump decided that the Climate Accord Agreement was not in the best interests of the American people. It seems he has really done his homework on this one.
Earlier last week when meeting at the G7 Summit, President Trump refused to sign the agreement, saying he would make his decision after returning home.
As reported by CBS News, the “Obama administration committed the U.S. to the agreement without seeking ratification in the Senate, meaning Mr. Trump can withdraw support unilaterally. The U.S. joins Nicaragua and Syria as the only countries not participating in the agreement.”
To me it seems he was being pressured here and abroad, into signing the agreement. Trump won’t let anyone pressure him. When he makes a decision, it is a very informative one, carefully thought out.
Today the President said he would welcome if the Democrats would sit down with him to discuss a possible renegotiation on the Climate Accord. But, Reuters has reported that Macron says there can’t be any renegotiating.
Since when does anyone just say here, sign this, accept this, without any question? That is the most outrageous thing I have ever heard! This is bullying the United States as far as I am concerned.

Today, President Trump took one more important step towards restoring the primacy of American workers and American businesses by unshackling them from the terrible deal that is the Paris Climate Accord. That deal imposes little responsibility on the world’s largest emitters, while costing the U.S. economy three trillion dollars in reduced output, six million industrial jobs, and three million manufacturing jobs. That amount of economic carnage is unjustified, and so we welcome this long overdue action in defense of the American people.
