President Trump made a bold decision to have the U.S. exit the UN Paris Climate Change Agreement and
kept a campaign promise to leave the deal that President Obama signed in 2016.
Despite significant pressure to remain in the international agreement, Trump made the decision to leave because it was
a bad deal for the U.S.
Under the agreement, the U.S. committed to cut about 25 percent of greenhouse gas emissions by 2025 from 2005 levels while China does
not have to reduce emissions until 2030.
Additionally, the U.S. agreed to provide $3 billion to a green climate fund to help developing nations meet their reduction limits.
The regulations on our energy infrastructure required to meet the U.S. commitment would come at a huge cost to our economy and jobs.
Trump's decision is consistent with his keep America first promise.
