Trump withdraws from Paris agreement

President Trump announced Thursday that the United States would pull out of the Paris accord, which addresses greenhouse gas emissions in an effort to reduce climate change.

“To fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the United States will withdraw from the Paris climate accord but begin negotiations to re-enter either the Paris accord or an entirely new transaction on terms that are fair to the United States,” the president announced in a Rose Garden ceremony. “We are getting out.”

The U.S. becomes one of only three countries not participating in the accord. Nicaragua bowed out, saying the agreement didn’t go far enough. Syria is overwhelmed by a civil war.
