Today, President Trump cemented his position as the worst and most dangerous president in US history and dragged America to a shameful new low.
Withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord not only removes the US from the community of nations and ends America’s historic global leadership, it also kills economic growth and squanders millions of jobs of today and tomorrow.
Americans 5 to 1 and just about every Fortune 500 company and financial institution favor staying in the Paris Climate Accord and they’re right. Here are some facts:
Cities of the future will be hubs of smart, connected, green innovation. But if Trump has his way, those cities will be Tokyo and Dubai, while US cities under Trump hang tragically onto the fossil fuel past.
Why are we giving away jobs and leadership of the future? Where would we be if Carnegie, Ford and Edison didn’t believe in scientific advancement, steel, motorized transportation and electric lights?
Mr. President, this is not one of your real estate deals. This is a gigantic job-killing blunder.
