cripple the U.S. economy, not save the planet.

If the US economy is so dependent on burning huge amounts of fossil fuels,

if it cannot come up with ways to burn less,

if it cannot come up with alternatives to burning so much,

if it has to be controlled by the same 'elite' fossils,

if US people have to continue to deal with the health problems caused by burning so much,

then it has an economy better suited for the 20th century, not the 21st.

Trump and his fellow fossils are stuck in the 1950s.

Since most of Trump's "accomplishments" were done through Executive Order they might as well have been written in pencil. Look for Biden to pull out the eraser.

As always, the man doesn't know what he is talking about!

“not designed to save the environment. It was designed to kill the American economy."

Or maybe he does know, but wants everything his way again, destroying what has been agreed upon by the majority for the past x-amount of years. It's time for him to leave!

Yes, Trump put the US into the same group as...

Iran, Iraq, Libya, South Sudan, Yemen and Turkey.

Who cares what this fraud thinks?

Global warming is not a hoax created by the Chinese.

It's interesting that he should express his opposition to the Paris Accord in that way, in words specifically chosen to appeal to his conspiracy theorist base. As though it could possibly be true that the rest of the world got together with the deliberate and stated intention of "killing the US economy" and decided to achieve that though a non-binding climate accord. Why would the US's many trading partners and allies, many of whom according to Trump have trade relations with the US that are more beneficial to them than to the USA, want to "kill the US economy" anyway? It'd be like killing the goose that laid the golden eggs.

Of course none of this will matter to the Trump base, who'll just lap it up and regurgitate it as gospel truth.

One of the last Trump's childish sore loser tantrums..

Thank God this pathetic loser clown will go away in Jan20 and Joe will fix the country..

I see he has his golf shoes on in the photo.

And some people were accusing Biden of hiding in his bunker. The current president has had only 2 items on his schedule in the past 2 weeks except lunch with the VP.

The rest of the time has been ‘executive time’ to play golf and spout bs on twitter.

telling world leaders at a virtual summit that the agreement was designed to cripple the U.S. economy, not save the planet.

 One of my daughters, when a rebel teenager, used to use a phrase that really irked me.  But I now see it does have a place and time to be used purposely.  

So to Donald Trump on his words above I say:

Whatever.

Unfortunately I can't say it the totally dismissive way she was able too,  But, whatever.

One of the many things the last four years have shown is that Trump has never met a challenge that he couldn't run away from...

Trump is becoming a fossil.

That’s ok, since the Democrats will make climate the highest priority over jobs, especially small businesses and spending buckets of money in the process that helps solidify the GOP in retaking the House. Losing 11 House seats and Republicans gaining 3 in California is NEVER a good sign for Democrats down the road.

Once completed, they can neuter Biden and his merrily bunch of climate spenders. This just all helps Trump and the GOP down the road. Enjoy.

Not many people are dumb enough to believe that Economy and Climate are mutually exclusive. So you’re in rare company.

People aren’t and don’t overwhelmingly, but the Democrats don’t think so, never have and never will.

So you’re in rare company.

70+ million people..that’s about the entire population of France, rare.....not really.

The rest of the time has been ‘executive time’ to play golf...

He knows exactly what happened in the election, and also that the system will not let it pass, as such he is cool and confident and playing golf, the left would like to see him otherwise..this adds to there frustration.

81 million Think differently. I know math is hard. 81 million is more than 70 something.

My lord, you make it easy....

The only thing that can benefit Trump is if his BFF Putin can cyber bomb his taxes in the IRS server to smithereens...

But that still won't stop his indictment as "Individual-1"...or the massive fraud in the Trump Org that Weisselberg has already testified to...

Enjoyment will be watching Trump on the stand pleading the 5th and Rudy having more hair dye meltdowns...

Let's be honest, the Paris accords are worthless. They are aspirational at best, but actually are just posturing and posing by the leaders. In reality the goals are nothing, and do nothing.

The US has already reduced its Co2 emissions by 20% in the past decade, is transiting to cleaner forms of energy like natural gas, etc. China is still building coal fired power stations.

Trump on the way out the door and still spouting lies. Is anyone really surprised by that?

so they left the treaty on Nov 4th when the election they lost was on Nov 3rd? That's a lot of spite. As well as other decision made now.
