The fallout from President Trump's announcement that he was withdrawing America from the Paris Climate Agreement was that corporations and states nationwide, as well as global leaders, decided to withdraw from Trump. The President made his announcement from the White House Rose Garden on Thursday, saying that the non-binding agreement was restricting American innovation because it would not allow them to lead. After his announcement, supporters of the climate agreement have stated that the President misled everyone who saw, read and heard his speech as it was full of inaccuracies.

Trump continues destroying Obama legacy

The Trump administration's head of the EPA, Scott Pruitt, came to the defense of the administration's decision, saying that CO2 levels had already been reduced through innovation and technology and not by government mandate.

The Paris Climate Agreement was organized with both President Obama and Chinese President Xi-Jinping last year where they were able to get the non-binding cooperation of 195 countries. As a candidate, Donald Trump vowed to withdraw the U.S. from the agreement which falls in line with Republican views that environmental protection is more government regulation with claims that it stagnates productivity.

Blasting News reported on when the Trump administration went after former President Obama's Clean Air Pact to empower Pruitt to start dismantling those regulations, which they've gladly started to do.

In a recent interview with Trump's Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley on CNN's State of the Union, she described President Obama's commitment to the Paris Climate Accord as something separate from the United States, saying that it was his doing and not America. It's in this case with Trump's withdraw, however, that Haley -- and most likely Republicans -- will see this as being America united.

Trump administration designed to attack environmentalism

During his campaign, Trump promised to lift all government regulations for the same reasons and has even put people such as the former CEO to Exxon Mobil Rex Tillerson as his Secretary of State, a corporation which environmentalists have labeled as a mass polluter.

Scott Pruitt has also for years led an attack on the EPA with multiple lawsuits and because of that, was put in charge with the idea to weaken the agency rather than enforce those regulations.

President Trump has also signed executive orders that allow fossil fuel industries to drill in areas that were initially protected under the Obama administration.

Of those committed to agreement

German Chancellor Angela Merkle and France's new president Emmanuel Macron have made statements to condemn the Trump administration for its decision. Trump said during his speech that they would try to renegotiate the deal but said that if they didn't, then it would be fine.

European leaders have already said that they would not renegotiate the deal and in a similar gesture of defiance, innovators like Tesla's Elon Musk and Disney CEO Robert Iger resigned from presidential advisory roles in protest. Corporations like Shell, Apple, Facebook and Morgan Stanley had apparently signed a letter that was sent to Trump asking him to stay in the agreement from which the U.S.

cannot withdraw from any earlier than 2020.
