President Trump is expected to announce Thursday that his administration will back out of the Paris Climate Agreement that was agreed upon in 2015 by nearly 200 countries, including Obama’s administration, two sources told Fox News.
Trump, who vowed to pull out of the deal during the 2016 campaign, is expected to withdraw, but officials cautioned that there may be “caveats in the language,” leaving open the possibility that the decision is not final, a senior White House source told The Associated Press.
The accord would have forced the U.S. to reduce fossil fuel emissions by nearly 30 percent by 2025.
Word of Trump’s decision comes a day after the president met with Scott Pruitt, the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. Like his boss, Pruitt has questioned climate scientists who claim the Earth is warming and that man-made climate emissions are to blame.
