Trump: Paris deal was 'massive redistribution of United States wealth' & Trump energy agenda gets boosts

Via Billy

Trump argued

President Trump said Thursday that he had decided to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate deal because it imposed unfair restrictions on American energy while allowing other signatories to develop theirs.

"We have among the most abundant energy reserves on the planet," Trump said during a speech delivered at the White House. "Yet under this agreement we are effectively putting these reserves under lock and key."

Trump said he was willing to work with Democrats to re-enter the Paris pact or craft "something that's much better than the Paris accord," but only on terms that proved more favorable to the American economy.

"The reality is that withdrawing is in America's economic interest and won't matter much to the climate," Trump said. "We will be environmentally friendly, but we're not going to put our businesses out of work."

  1. Just now to my people.
    On this trip alone Donald outshone all the Presidents since Reagan. Neither he, nor anyone else, has to hit a home run every time, and he’s batting above .500 by my scoring. Keep America’s oil pumping.

    1. In my view, Trump's well ahead of Reagan already.

      Guest workers might not be expanded now.

      I wish voters could understand "redistributing America's wealth" tends to mean redistributing the poor and middle class's wealth and opportunity.

      And the Paris deal hurt small businesses, which is very important in the power structure of America. Small helps conservatives, to put it simply.
