President Obama entered into the Paris climate accord “unilaterally and without the permission of Congress,” Trump said.
“This agreement gives foreign bureaucrats control over how much energy we use right here in America,” he said.
“Foreign bureaucrats are going to be controlling what we’re using and what we’re doing on our land in our country.”
His answer to the Paris deal under a Trump administration will be “No way!”
“These actions have denied millions of Americans access to the energy wealth sitting under your feet.”
He also said he would stop all payments to the United Nations’ global warming programs.
The Paris deal is non-binding, but it obliges the U.S. to provide billions of dollars for a fund to help smaller countries cope with the effects of climate change.
