No Change On President Trump’s Position on Paris Agreement

There has been no change in the United States’ position on the Paris agreement,” the White House said in a statement Saturday following a report in the WS-J claiming otherwise.

“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.”

The paper reported that a top EU official said The Trump Administration would not re-negotiate the Paris Accord, but White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders echoed the official White House statement on Twitter:

Our position on the Paris agreement has not changed. @POTUS has been clear, US withdrawing unless we get pro-America terms.

European Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy Miguel Arias Cañete said that the shift from President Trump’s decision came during a meeting with ministers from some 30 countries in Montreal to push forward on implementing the Paris deal without the United States.

US President Donald Trump in early June said the US will exit the accord because other countries were “gaining a financial advantage over the United States.”

Have a terrific weekend.
