President Trump Reneges Paris Agreement Withdrawal

President Trump Reneges Paris Agreement Withdrawal

An official with the European Union told the Wall Street Journal that the USA will not be pulling out the deal, something that Trump said he would do in June. "As the President has made abundantly clear, the United States is withdrawing unless we can re-enter on terms that are more favorable to our country", White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said in a statement.

After proudly proclaiming to the world that he represents the people of "Pittsburgh, not Paris" earlier this June, President Donald Trump is choosing to renege on this promise and re-enter the worldwide climate change deal.

The Wall Street Journal also reported that President Trump was not planning to pull out of the deal.

What's more, New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush said a White House spokesperson had denied the meeting account, "saying the position hasn't changed".

Trump announced on June 1 that he would pull the United States out of the landmark agreement, as he had promised during his presidential campaign.

The Wallabies have now won 14 of their last 15 games against the Pumas and have lost only once to Argentina in 14 Tests at home. Folau's two tries helped the Wallabies seal a good win.

"It's truly said to see all the fairweather friends turning on Trump", Baked Alaska said on Twitter.

Trump promised to "cancel" the Paris Agreement during his presidential campaign, but his own White House was split on the issue.

"We continue to make the case that, like the United States, we want to create jobs, we want to create economic growth and there's a $30-trillion opportunity when it comes to clean growth and climate action", she said.

The Agence France-Presse (AFP), an global news agency headquartered in Paris, didn't go quite as far, however, reporting that "a United States envoy has signaled that President Donald Trump may be ready to soften his stance on the Paris climate pact".
