President Donald Trump declared on Thursday that the United States will withdraw from the 2015 Paris accord and try to negotiate a new global deal on climate change.
Trump complained that the deal, which was signed under his predecessor, Barack Obama, gives other countries an unfair advantage over US industry and destroys American jobs.
“So we’re getting out but we’ll start to negotiate and we will see if we can make a deal that’s fair. And if we can, that’s great. And if we can’t, that’s fine,” he said.
