Trump slams global climate agreement Biden intends to rejoin
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump railed against the Paris climate accord on Sunday, telling world leaders at a virtual summit that the agreement was designed to cripple the U.S. economy, not save the planet.

“To protect American workers, I withdrew the United States from the unfair and one-sided Paris climate accord, a very unfair act for the United States,” Trump said in a video statement from the White House to the Group of 20 summit hosted by Saudi Arabia. His comments came during a discussion among the world’s largest economies on safeguarding the Earth.

President-elect Joe Biden, who takes office in January, has said he will rejoin the global pact that the U.S. helped forge five years ago.

Trump contended the international accord was “not designed to save the environment. It was designed to kill the American economy.”

Trump, who has worked to undo most of President Barack Obama’s efforts to fight climate change, said that since withdrawing from the climate agreement, the U.S. has reduced carbon emissions more than any nation.
Well isn't that odd. Donald Trump, who had no ideas of his own and whose sole edict for governing was to write executive orders that attempted to undo what the previous administration did is upset that the President Elect intends to do the same to him?

Trump legacy will be easy to write. An incompetent and inept leader who accomplished little beyond cutting taxes for the wealthy/corporation and putting judges on the bench. Fewer people were working when his term ended than when it started, he passed no meaningful legislation during his term and stood idly by as over 250,000 Americans died on his watch.

Because the "global climate agreement" is complete bull####. Until China, India, Africa and every other massive polluting country cleans thing up, why should anyone take this nonsense seriously?

They only want our money as with virtually every other pact, treaty, agreement, we enter in to with other nations. They spit on us daily yet demand our money. It is time to tell them to where to go and what to do when they get there. They get enough of our money in unbalanced trade, humanitarian relief, military support and a host of other feel goods. Screw them all. When they clean up their own polluting spews then we can rejoin. We have reduced our pollutant emissions on our own to record lows, let them do the same.
