The leftist/globalists are beside themselves with anger over President Trump's decision to pull America out of the Paris climate accord. If they just listened to his speech objectively, they would see that he would have been foolish not to do so. It was mainly a legalized extortion scheme to transfer American wealth and jobs to other countries. That's why the leftist/globalists are so upset.
A lot of the unhinged reactions to the decision are based on just that, but some are happening because people are simply ignorant of (1) the economic damage America would endure, and (2) the serious misconceptions and weaknesses of the accord. It's a political agreement designed to get American money, made by people who should know that if everyone involved did everything the accord required, it would have no positive effect on the climate, and a very negative effect on America. Mr. Trump explains –
The globalists and leftists, here and abroad aren't concerned with the bad results the accord would bring for the U. S., they just want America to sacrificially support the globalist agenda. Germany is especially upset, because they would not get to impose the accord on us, forcing a substantial surrender of American sovereignty. Like France, we would be ruled to a considerable extent by Angela Merkel. And they somehow can't understand Trump's decision.
Trump is wise to fulfill his campaign pledges about this and other matters pertaining to foreign entanglements that put our country at a distinct disadvantage. Bravo, Mr. President!
