I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris. (Applause) I promised to end or renegotiate any agreement that would not serve America`s interests. Many trade agreements will soon be renegotiated. Very rarely do we have an agreement that works for this country, but they will soon be renegotiated. The trial began on the first day. But now we`re on it. A proposal from BNP Paribas Asset Management won a 53% majority at Chevron – it asked the oil giant to ensure that its climate lobby complied with the paris agreement`s objectives. There are also serious legal and constitutional issues. Foreign leaders in Europe, Asia and around the world should have no more to say about the U.S. economy than our own citizens and their elected representatives. That is why our withdrawal from the agreement is a reaffirmation of American sovereignty.

(Applause) Our constitution is unique among all the nations of the world, and it is my supreme commitment and the greatest honor to protect them. And I will. The agreement is a massive redistribution of wealth from the United States to other countries. With a growth of 1%, renewable energy sources can meet part of our domestic demand, but with 3 or 4% growth that I expect, we need all forms of American energy available, or our country – (Applause) – will be seriously threatened by power cuts and power cuts, our businesses will often stop, and the American family will suffer the consequences in the form of lost jobs and a very low quality of life. And if you go down, you`ll fulfill another campaign promise to the American people. Know that I am grateful for your strength, courage and firmness in serving and leading our country. Democratic candidate Joe Biden said that if elected president, he would reinstate the Paris accord early in his presidency. The United States could become a party to the Paris Agreement 30 days after the official information of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

The country is then expected to present a new commitment to reduce emissions by 2030. "What Obama did at the end of his second term was fundamentally undemocratic to sign a Paris agreement without going to the Senate and Congress and doing it instead through an executive," said former U.N. climate chief Yvo De Boer.
