Published on 2 June, 2017 at 12:36 pm By

Trump said that the Paris Accord is unfair to the United States and not ‘tough enough’ on countries like China and India.

The pact, which pledges to fight climate change, Trump said was bad for his country, its economy and added that countries like India and China were among the reasons why the Paris Accord was unfair to the United States.

 

He went on to add that he was elected to represent the people of Pittsburgh, not Paris and that in order to protect the people of America he was pulling the US out of the accord.

He though made it clear that the US would only begin negotiations to re-enter either the Paris accord if they are fair to the United States, its businesses, its workers, its people and its taxpayers.

He added that the US don’t want other leaders and other countries “laughing” at them anymore and after he pulls out, they “won’t be”.

Supporters of the accord, including many leading U.S. business figures, have expressed regret over Trump’s move and said it’s a huge blow to international efforts to curb global warming.

The move also didn’t go down well with Elon Musk who immediately tweeted in support of India and China and announced his withdrawal from Trump’s council.
