Trump Vows to Cut US Funding for UN Climate Programs If Elected
Trump, who used a teleprompter, said that if elected he would kill certain policies including theParis climate agreement, arguing the agreement “gives foreign bureaucrats control over how much our energy and how much we use right here in America.”
A nonbeliever in man-made climate change, Trump said he would stop all payments of U.S. tax dollars to U.N. Global Warming programs.
In his keynote speech, he argued, “We can’t be sending our money all over the world” and touted that a Trump administration will develop an “America-first energy plan.”
“We’re going to rescind all the job-destroying Obama Executive Actions including the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the United States Rule,” Trump said to applause from the audience.
