President Donald Trump announced Thursday he will pull the United States out of the Paris climate accord, making good on his campaign promise to buck the agreement. Trump described the 195-country deal as a job killer that’s unfair to American taxpayers. “So we’re getting out—but we will start to negotiate, and we will see if we can make a deal that’s fair,” Trump said. Starting today, the United States will no longer comply with the requirements of the pact and instead will begin new negotiations to reenter the accord on different conditions, Trump declared.
