US President Donald Trump has pulled the United States out of the 2015 Paris agreement on climate change. The decision has horrified world leaders, who widely condemned his decision.
Mr Trump claimed he did it for economic reasons, saying it would cost American jobs. The US coal industry backed the move, citing the Paris climate agreement would have badly affected the US economy. The US President said it was fulfilling his “solemn duty to protect America and its citizens.”
US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said, “The US had a terrific record on reducing our own greenhouse gas.”
The 2015 Paris agreement on climate change committed the 195 countries, including the USA, to keeping rising global temperatures to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels, and endeavour to limit them even more to 1.5°C.
Today we will discuss Donald Trump. What do you think of him so far? Is he doing everything you expected? Is he living up to your dreams? Are you disappointed with him? Is he the right man for the job? Should Hillary Clinton have been president?
Donald Trump is now the 45th President of the USA. He’s running the United States of America. The new American president stepped into the White House on Friday January 20th. Depending on your politics, you either love him or hate him. His deputy, Mike Pence, is the new Vice President of the USA.
Love him or hate him, the Republican Party candidate Donald J. Trump is to be the new 45th President of the USA. In a stunning upset, The Donald has beaten Hillary Clinton, from the Democratic Party, to the White House.
The result has shocked many in the USA and around the world. It sent convulsions throughout the USA and the world. Many world leaders and celebrities are now back-tracking fast on any derogatory statements and speeches they previously made.
The result was a devastating blow to Hillary Clinton, 69, who many pundits thought would easily win the presidency. Mike Pence will be the new Vice President of the USA.
Will Donald Trump or Hilary Clinton be the next American president? It’s an interesting question that’s got a lot of Americans talking!
It looks like billionaire Trump will be the Republican Party nominee after the other contenders dropped out. Critics once said ‘it could never happen’ (Trump being elected) but so far he has proved them all wrong.
If Clinton is chosen she will have a hard fight between herself and Trump. She wants to break down barriers, yet she is establishment that many Americans currently dislike.
