The Trump administration is pushing back hard against published reports that the president was considering backing off his pledge to remove the United States from the Paris Climate Accords, which are really not designed to “reverse climate change” but instead are nothing more than a major wealth transfer.
Over the weekend The Wall Street Journal claimed that President Donald J. Trump was reconsidering whether to leave the accords on the advice of an unnamed White House advisor, who reportedly suggested that the president agree to a revision of the agreement in exchange for U.S. re-engagement, the Washington Times reported.
But Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and White House chief of staff H.R. McMaster refuted the report.
Tillerson offered the closest thing to a potential reversal when he said that the administration might consider it “under the right conditions.” McMaster said that Trump could reexamine the deal if the parties agree to fix what he called a “flawed agreement.”
