President Trump announces that the US will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord: "We're getting out"

President Trump: "The economy is starting to come back and very, very rapidly."

While Germany's Angel Merkel and the Italian President joining the new French president as sane and adult leaders for the free world (on this matter the world in total), Macron of France spoke eloquently.

Our former president also spoke and issued a written response to the ridiculous decision from Trump.
Read Mr Obama's statement in full below: 
A year and a half ago, the world came together in Paris around the first-ever global agreement to set the world on a low-carbon course and protect the world we leave to our children. 
It was steady, principled American leadership on the world stage that made that achievement possible.  It was bold American ambition that encouraged dozens of other nations to set their sights higher as well. And what made that leadership and ambition possible was America’s private innovation and public investment in growing industries like wind and solar – industries that created some of the fastest new streams of good-paying jobs in recent years, and contributed to the longest streak of job creation in our history. 
Simply put, the private sector already chose a low-carbon future.  And for the nations that committed themselves to that future, the Paris Agreement opened the floodgates for businesses, scientists, and engineers to unleash high-tech, low-carbon investment and innovation on an unprecedented scale. 
The nations that remain in the Paris Agreement will be the nations that reap the benefits in jobs and industries created.  I believe the United States of America should be at the front of the pack.  But even in the absence of American leadership; even as this Administration joins a small handful of nations that reject the future; I’m confident that our states, cities, and businesses will step up and do even more to lead the way, and help protect for future generations the one planet we’ve got. 
What would a good day be without a Trump Fact Check: Politifact on Trump's Paris Agreement withdraw comments? Link

A deeper consideration is the scope and depth of money to politicians who may have privately and publicly urged Trump to dump the US into an Earth-killing environmental dump.

This is a list of the 22 Republicans who pushed for us to pull out of Paris Climate Agreement. The amount of donated monies they receive from related industries are also listed.

And, the lie about his tax bill moving along in Congress. 

Trump also mentioned jobs and the US economy "coming back." Well, the US economy started to come back in mid-2009. Month to month jobs numbers since January 2007.

Donald Trump is a very dangerous person. We have allowed 63 million sycophants to place a man in the White House who seems determined to undermine our democracy. Even more pathetic, the 66 million who voted for Trump's opponent have to now watch as the person given the election by 46.9% of eligible voters who did not vote.
