This is EXACTLY what America needs right now! Politicians who are willing to stand up and remind the rest of the world that Trump doesn’t speak for all Americans.
California Gov. Jerry Brown appeared at the Global Citizen Festival in Hamburg, Germany and made a major announcement to all world leaders concerning climate change. Brown will host a summit on climate change in San Francisco in September.
“Yes, I know President Trump is trying to get out of the Paris Agreement, but he doesn’t speak for the rest of America. We in California and in states all across America believe it’s time to act, it’s time to join together, and that’s why at this Climate Action Summit we’re going to get it done.”
Donald Trump made the controversial decision to withdraw from the Paris agreement in June. Trump claims the agreement is a bad deal for America. In reality, the only reason he thinks that way is because Obama helped create the agreement, and everyone knows he’s obsessed with destroying everything Obama created.
During his Rose Garden speech on June 1, Trump stated:
“The United States will withdraw from the Paris climate accord … but begin negotiations to reenter either the Paris accord or a really entirely new transaction on terms that are fair to the United States, its businesses, its workers, its people, its taxpayers.”
Luckily for America, Brown doesn’t care about Trump’s decision. He’s taking the lead on climate change, and Americans are behind him.
