 Paris climate deal designed to destroy US economy: Donald Trump

  • US President Donald Trump has once again defended his departure from the Paris Climate Agreement, saying it was not designed to protect the environment but to destroy the US economy.
  • In a virtual address to a sideline meeting of the G20 group of the world's 20 largest economies, Trump said the United States has cut more carbon emissions than any other country in the world since the Paris Agreement.
  • We are proving that the United States can protect its own environment without a unilateral global agreement, Trump said.
  • I separated the United States from the unilateral and unfair Paris Agreement and did not compromise on the employment of millions of Americans, he said.
  • I have refused to pay trillions of dollars to the world's biggest environmental criminals who have harmed the environment, and since I came to power, the atmosphere in the United States has been 7% cleaner than before, he said.
  • It should be noted that in the Paris Agreement reached in 2015, most of the countries of the world had agreed to reduce their carbon emissions for the protection of the environment.
  • The agreement was signed by then-President Barack Obama on behalf of the United States, while Trump opposed the Paris Agreement during his election campaign and announced his withdrawal from the agreement in 2017 after becoming president.
