The president has announced the US plans to trigger the withdrawal process of the UN COP21 Paris climate change agreement, and renegotiate its contribution to the deal.

Trump’s intention to quit the climate change deal has been highly rumoured this week. 

He said the agreement gave the US a “bad deal” and benefited other countries over the US. 

“In order to fulfil my duty to protect its citizens, the US will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord but begin negotiations to renter the Paris accord on terms that are fair to the US, its businesses, its workers and its tax payers.
