President Trump Considers America First, Including the Environment
US President Donald Trump believes in climate change, he thinks humans may have a role in it
“President Trump believes the climate is changing and he believes pollutants are part of the equation, He knows that it is changing and that the United States has to be responsible for its part in it and that is what we’re going to do,”US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said Saturday.
Amb. Haley made the comment in an interview to air on Sunday on CBS that President Trump “believes the climate is changing and he believes pollutants are part of that equation.”
When announcing his decision to pull out of the Paris accord, President Trump said his decision was made because of the “draconian financial and economic burdens the agreement imposes on our country.”
President Trump did not use the words “climate change” in his speech.
The Paris agreement was reached in Y 2015 between the United States and 194 other nations. With President Trump’s decision, the United States is 1 of just 3 countries around the world not participating in the Paris accord, but it is expected that behind the US leadership, the UK, Canada, Mexico and other will follow.
Amb. Haley says that President Trump is “absolutely intent on making sure that we have clean air, clean water, that he makes sure that we’re doing everything we can to keep America’s moral compass in the world when it comes to the environment.”
At the end of the day, watch what the President does.
What he is doing now is making sure that we have jobs for American citizens, and also making sure that we have a clean environment.
“He believes in clean water, clean air and made clear what he does not believe, which is that the US government should stay in an agreement that gives us too much of the financial burden, too much risk to these industries where the coal miners, people who work in cement and paper, people who looked in the eye in place after place and city after city while he was running.”
Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross Friday called President Trump an “environmentalist,” and that the decision to pull from the Paris climate accor was made for economic reasons.
Saturday, Amb. Haley defended President Trump’s move to pull out of the Paris climate accord, saying that the decision does not change the United States’ commitment to slowing climate change.
“Just because the US got out of that club doesn’t mean we are not going to care about the environment,” she said.
Amb. Haley said she believes President Trump will always consider America First, including the environment.
“The rest of the world wanted to tell us how to do it we will do it under our own terms.”
Have a terrific weekend.
