Congressman Biggs Applauds President Trump’s Decision to Withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement
Gilbert, Arizona – Today, President Donald Trump announced that the United States will withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement. Congressman Biggs issued the following statement:
“This afternoon, President Trump followed through on another significant promise to the American people by removing the nation from the Paris Climate Agreement. This agreement was the capstone of the Obama administration’s attempt to circumvent the constitutional powers of Congress and the antithesis of job creation and American energy production. By withdrawing from the agreement, President Trump has signaled to foreign powers and bureaucrats that the United States will not be subject to unattainable and unproductive environmental standards that will have a detrimental effect on hard-working Americans and do not come with a guarantee of compliance from other nations. I applaud President Trump for his forward thinking, commitment to his promises, and protection of American sovereignty.”
