Trump Tells Confidants U.S. Will Quit Paris Climate Deal

2

President Trump has privately told multiple people, including EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, that he plans to leave the Paris agreement on climate change, according to three sources with direct knowledge.

Publicly, Trump’s position is that he has not made up his mind and when we asked the White House about these private comments, Director of Strategic Communications Hope Hicks said, “I think his tweet was clear. He will make a decision this week.”

Pulling out of Paris is the biggest thing Trump could to do unravel Obama’s climate policies. It also sends a stark and combative signal to the rest of the world that working with other nations on climate change isn’t a priority to the Trump administration. Read more at AXIOS.

  1. after all the leaks, including fake news leaks, (that are, coincidentally always critical of Trump) do you really think for one moment that Mr Trump would be stupid enough to be one that “privately told multiple people” what he will or will not do? we are always hearing what Mr Trump thinks from 2nd or 3rd party sources, usually unnamed. He said he was going to decide this week on his “climate change” decision. why not give him a chance? and if he decides NOT to go along with it, isn’t that his choice? the media is not giving him a fair shake and is looking for whatever they can find to bash him. it’s really getting tiring.

  2. Combative ?! Really? maybe were just all tired of the bologna so we should have consequences in order to maybe accomplish something according to somebody who is no more qualified than I am. To determine what effect it really is and whether we have any control over it
