President Trump has upheld yet another promise and announced his intention to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Accords, a decision which is sure to cause much celebration among his supporters.
In one of Trump’s most effective speeches since taking office, the president outlined the disastrous realities of the Paris Accords, which those who support the agreement conveniently overlook. In short, the treaty forces America to carry the responsibility, and the financial burden, of the accords while some of the biggest polluters in the world get to corrupt the environment as much as they want, with absolutely no negative repercussions.
Trump rightfully points out during his speech that the accord is a disaster for America and the working class by saying, “I cannot in good conscious support a deal that punishes the United States, which is what it does, the world’s leader in environmental protection, while imposing no meaningful obligations on the world’s leading polluters.” Trump goes on to mention China, and how under the Paris Accord the country can pollute as much as they want for 13 years.
“The bottom line is the Paris Accord is very unfair at the highest level to the United States,” Trump stated.
It should come as no surprise that the globalist leaders of European countries were pressuring Trump to sign the deal, as once again the American taxpayers and workers would have shouldered the financial burden for the rest of the world.
President Trumps speech is sure to cause the cult of climate change fanatics to go ballistic, which is yet another reason this historic moment will be remembered as a victory for “America First” policies. One of Trump’s most memorable phrases during his speech was his statement of putting American cities first, not Paris.
“I was elected to help the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris,” Trump told those gathered in the White House Rose Garden, as he gave a forceful economic-nationalist condemnation of the global climate agreement, under which the United States is to meet progressively lower caps on certain emissions while subsidizing developing countries in the hope they do the same.
“This agreement is less about the climate and more about other countries gaining a financial advantage over the United States, ” Trump explained.
“It is time to put Youngstown, Ohio; Detroit, Michigan; and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, along with many other locations within our great country, before Paris, France,” Trump said. “It is time to make America great again.”
The President also promised that the withdrawal from the Paris Accord will not be the end of his economic-nationalist reexamination of America’s position in the international economic landscape. “Many trade deals will soon be under renegotiation.”
Yet another key component of Barack Obama’s legacy has been dismantled by Trump, and he hasn’t even been in office 6 months yet. If this rapid pace of undoing the damage that Obama did to the country keeps up, America will be made great again in no time.
