Trump's Parting Shot to Europe: Pulls out of Paris Climate Agreement

By Douglas V. Gibbs

The left-wing liberal political hot heads are angry.

I have a saying.  If I am not pissing them off, I am doing something wrong.  Hate mail from Democrats, left-wing crazies, and opponents to the principles and philosophies of the United States Constitution are worn by me like a badge of honor.

Congratulations, President Donald J. Trump.  You have the leftists peeing in their pants, they are so angry.  Elon Musk has said bye bye, and the Europeans, between your words about them paying their fair share regarding NATO, and pulling out of the Paris Climate Change Accord, are looking especially grumpy, these days.

When it comes to the hoax of man-made climate change, it is as if this massive worldwide hypnosis has claimed billions of victims, but Trump snapping his fingers has not only not brought them out of their trance, but has enraged them beyond any kind of rationality.

Pulling the United States out of the "agreement", which was never ratified by the Senate (because they named it an "accord" rather than a treaty) was among Trump's campaign promises.  President Obama got us into it without Congress, so Trump can get us out of it without Congress. . . so the screams he needs Congress are false, by the way.

And the nail driven into the heart of the socialist vampires in Europe was the crowning cap of a very successful European (and Middle East) trip by our president.  

Now, it's time for Europe to make a decision.  Trump correctly called out our NATO partners for failing to spend the required 2 percent of gross domestic product on defense.   He demanded that Old-guard Europe, these "champagne socialists," realize that America is working to get back where we belong, and a part of that journey requires Europe to take care of their own responsibilities - or at least pay and do what they originally agreed to pay and do.

World leaders also flipped out at the G-7 summit when President Trump merely suggested he was going to live up to his campaign promise to pull the United States out of the Paris climate agreement. The president then followed that up by doing it.

Why would we stay in the agreement?  Aside from the fact that climate change is a natural phenomenon and the socialists are trying to use it for monetary and power gains, the climate agreement has a very high price tag that will essentially do nothing based on their own models, as well as in the reality of the real world.  Its regulations would increase energy costs for American families and businesses, causing an overall average shortfall of nearly 400,000 jobs and total income loss of more than $20,000 for a family of four by the year 2035.

Europe is crying, the Democrats are screaming, and President Donald J. Trump is doing exactly what he set out to do.  He is dismantling the Democrat Party's damaging agenda, and is making America great again.

Next stop?  Likely heavier sanctions on North Korea.
