World Leaders Slam Donald Trump After Withdrawing From Paris Agreement

0

In a perfect #covfefe world, Donald Trump would have led the world in coming up with solutions to reverse the effects of climate change, as is the goal of the Paris Agreement.

However, the U.S. President seem to have decided that he has better things to do than save the environment and the 8 billion people who inhabit it – like maybe, Tweet typos at 12:00 AM from his White House bathroom?

Trump said that the Paris Agreement imposed unfair rules and standards on America, which is why he and his administration decided to withdraw support.

“I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris,” he said in a speech.

This, he said, despite knowing that America is the second largest contributor of green house gases all over the world, next to China.

Shortly after the announcement, world leaders expressed their disappointment towards Donald Trump.

“We are deeply disappointed that the United States federal government has decided to withdraw from the Paris Agreement,” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wrote on Twitter.

He added, “Canada is unwavering in our commitment to fight climate change and support clean economic growth.”

Meanwhile, Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon called Trump’s move, “irresponsible.”

Former Mexican president Vicente Fox Quesada didn’t mince his words in a series of Tweets either.

“United States has stopped being the leader of the free world. @realDonaldTrump, single handed, took care of that,” Quesada wrote. “You’re leaving a dark legacy just to satisfy your greediness. Today, you’ve surrendered the hopes and future of a nation.”

French President Emmanuel Marcon called Trump’s Paris Agreement withdrawal a “mistake for the U.S. and for our planet.”

“We all share the same responsibility: make our planet great again,” he said in a speech.

He also called on engineers, scientists and engineers to work with them in coming up with “concrete solutions for our climate, our environment.”

“I want to say that they will find in France a second homeland,” he added.

During Obama’s time, the U.S. pledged to cut carbon emissions by 26 to 28 percent below 2005 levels by the year 2025, The New York Times reported.

It also pledged to grant $3 billion in aid for impoverished countries.
