President Trump Announces U.S. to Withdraw From Paris Climate Accord

Trump also promised the United States will begin negotiations to re-enter the accord on terms that are more favorable to the American people.

President Trump announced on Thursday that the United States will be withdrawing from the Paris climate accord and seek to negotiate a better deal that favors the American people, or possibly enter a new pact.

“I am fighting every day for the great people of this country,” Trump declared. “Therefore, in order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the United States will withdraw from the Paris climate accord.”

Trump’s announcement was met with applause from those gathered at the White House to hear the announcement.

Then Trump told the crowd that America will “begin negotiations to re-enter either the Paris accord or an entirely new transition on terms that are fair to the United States, its businesses, its workers, its people, its taxpayers. So we’re getting out.”

“We will start to negotiate, and we will see if we can make a deal that’s fair. If we can, that’s great. If we can’t, that’s fine,” Trump concluded.
