Following news reports that President Donald Trump will withdraw the United States from the costly Paris Agreement, FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon commented:
“The Paris Agreement is too costly for the United States. Americans haven’t seen real economic and wage growth for far too long, and this misguided treaty failed to strike anything close to a balanced between preserving the environment and prosperity. The Paris Agreement would have cost the economy more than $2 trillion and nearly 400,000 jobs.”
“We applaud the decision from President Trump and urge his administration to continue to seek ways to roll back costly regulations that are hurting the economy.”
