Climate Activists To Protest Trump's Paris Exit Friday

Mr Obama led the chorus of disapproval after Mr Trump confirmed his decision to pull out, saying the Trump administration had chose to join "the small handful of nations that reject the future".

Former Secretary of State John Kerry ripped President Trump's decision to abandon the Paris climate deal yesterday, arguing it could be "the most self-defeating action in American history". The two wrote a letter to Energy Secretary Rick Perry saying that maintaining the commitment to the agreement and to U.S. leadership on climate change will help protect future generations.

U.S. allies have publicly criticized the Trump administration's decision to leave the deal, which was signed by the Obama administration and took effect in November.

Mr Peduto responded by saying: 'Pittsburgh stands with the world and will follow Paris agreement'.

Tapping into the "America First" message he used on the election trail, Trump announced the withdrawal on Thursday, saying that participating in the pact would undermine the USA economy, wipe out U.S.jobs, weaken national sovereignty and put his country at a permanent disadvantage.

Meanwhile, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, and Macron issued a joint statement that read as a direct response to Trump's willingness to reenter the agreement on terms that he found more favorable.

Brian Webb, director of Climate Caretakers, a group that advocates for prayer as part of its approach to combating the effects of climate change, said Pence's claim was wrong. "As a business leader concerned with creating American jobs, I disagree with the decision to exit the Paris Accord".

Youngstown, Ohio, Mayor John McNally (D) said he supports the Paris agreement in a phone interview Friday, adding he was surprised at the shoutout from Trump.

Northwestern University has signed an open letter to the worldwide community to endorse actions being taken at the state and local levels to address climate change in support of the Paris Agreement.

Mrs May said she spoke to Mr Trump at the G7 summit last week and again last night, making the concerns of the United Kingdom known. "So I think we're going to continue to be the world's leader in it".
