Washington, DC –In light of President Donald Trump’s imminent announcement to remove the United States from the Paris climate agreement, Club for Growth President David McIntosh offered the following statement:

“Today, the Club for Growth applauds President Trump’s forthcoming decision to begin the process of withdrawing the United States from the Paris climate agreement,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh.

For far too long the Obama Administration allowed foreign governments and alarmist environmentalists to dictate, not only climate change policy, but worse our nation’s economic policy.  President Trump’s decision sends a strong message to the environmentalist movement: no longer will the United States be strong armed by their scare tactics intended to harm our economy and inhibit economic growth.

With this announcement, President Trump takes a significant step toward putting American taxpayers and businesses back in the driver’s seat.  We encourage the President to continue to take actions that will unleash economic growth and create more American jobs and opportunities.”
