President Donald Trump made the decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate agreement -- which is either a product of his own ideology or the agenda of #White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon. It has also been speculated that this was possibly created by right-wing Republicans for whom climate change is nothing but a hoax. But, there is widespread consensus over the fact that the present administration is hell-bent on opposing all the Obama-era reforms.

Trump's decision for a pullout

The decision as it relates to withdrawing from the Paris agreement was one of President Trump’s main goals during the 2016 election cycle, but since he has moved into the White House, several other factors have solidified his resolve:

  • President Trump received a letter of support from twenty-one hardliner Republicans including the party's majority leader, Mitch McConnell -- urging Trump to withdraw #United States support from the Paris accord.
  • American Conservative Think Tanks and Activist Groups advocate the fact that the money that belongs to the development of the hard-earning American taxpayer should not be used in such an obsolete and worthless program. A similar petition was signed by forty such groups, urging the White House to abandon the Paris agreement.
  • Moreover, Conservative news outlets and some Trump supporting media organizations like Breitbart and Fox News have also come out strongly in favor of the pullout from the #Paris Climate Agreement.
  • As it is evident that the Trump regime is shutting down all Obama-era reforms like ObamaCare, food stamps, and transparency in the education system, how can President Donald J. Trump let go of something as big as the Paris Accord?

The world responds

The Paris Accord was signed on April 22nd, 2016 at the United Nations headquarters in New York by 174 countries and the European Union.

Under the agreement, the United States of America had to cut down its emission levels by 26% (which seems an impossible task). World leaders like German Chancellor Angela Merkel called it a state of total blunder, whereas, the newly elected President of France Emmanuel Macron responded by urging President Donald Trump to make our planet great again.

Nothing can be done

As it has been noted, the Donald Trump administration -- backed by the Republican Party who are in majority in Congress as well as in the Senate -- will not stop until the Democratic reforms of the last 8 years are nullified.
