President Donald Trump has officially made the decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement, which has been confirmed by numerous mainstream media outlets.
This decision was a key point of his campaign promise that was made to his supporters as he was running for President.
Many Republicans feel that the Paris Climate Agreement is unfair and jeopardizes the American economy, so getting out of it is a great thing.
This is in perfect contradiction to what former President Barack Obama did during his role in leadership and it will undo some of the damage that he has done.
This is definitely going to leave some sore spots on Obama, who defended his stance on this policy he instated during his time in office only a few weeks ago. He said that the treated was “the best possible shot to shave the one planet we’ve got.”
Ivanka and Jared Kushner are very supportive of President Trump’s decision and have worked behind the scenes to help make this decision easier on everyone in involved.
“I will be announcing my decision on the Paris Accord over the next few days,” he wrote. “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” The decision wreaks havoc on former President Barack Obama’s legacy as president, despite pleas from world leaders for the United States to show leadership on climate change and remain in the agreement Trump’s decision fulfills a key campaign promise to supporters of his run for president, widely supported by Republican members of congress who felt that the treaty unfairly jeopardized the American economy. Opponents of the climate deal were concerned after White House economic advisor Gary Cohn told reporters that the president was “evolving on the issue” during his trip overseas. His daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner reportedly channelled support for the deal behind the scenes at the White House, encouraging climate change activists that Trump might change his mind. Trump’s Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, the former Exxon CEO, also supported remaining in the treaty.
On May 9th, Obama defended his climate change legacy, calling the agreement “the one that will define the contours of this century more dramatically perhaps than any other.” In October 2016, Obama described the deal as “the best possible shot to save the one planet we’ve got.”
