Us Will Formally Withdraw From The Paris Agreement

The fact that the Paris Agreement is holding the U.S. back while it strengthens some of the world`s most polluting countries should dispel any doubt as to why foreign lobbyists want to keep our great country tied and bound by this agreement: it`s about giving their country an economic advantage over the United States. It won`t happen as long as I`m president. I am sorry. (Applause) No country was able to denounce its withdrawal from the agreement before the expiry of a period of three years from the date of ratification. Our tax bill is moving forward in Congress, and I think it`s working very well. I think a lot of people will be pleasantly surprised. The Republicans are working very, very hard. We would like to have the support of the Democrats, but we may have to do it alone. But it`s going very well.
