The mayor of Pittsburgh fired back at President Trump Thursday for his use of the city in rationalizing withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement, saying the city will continue to follow the deal.

Bill Peduto (D) tweeted Thursday that “it’s now up to cities to lead” after Trump announced that the U.S. will pull out of the Paris climate deal.

Trump referenced Pittsburgh in his speech announcing the decision to withdraw, saying, “I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris.”

Peduto fired back, tweeting, “Fact: Hillary Clinton received 80% of the vote in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh stands with the world & will follow Paris Agreement.”

    This is actually the way things should be in the U.S. Since major cities are the worst offenders of air pollution, major cities should be more diligent about pollution. If mayors clean up their cities, the country will be better for them having done so without having had to have the U.S. give money to foreign nations. Kudos to you, Mayor of Pittsburgh. I hope other big city mayors follow your lead. Now leave the rest of us alone and take care of your own backyard.

    Pittsie, you can always junk up your land with solar and windmills. You don’t have to be part of a criminal mob to do that. Just do it.

    Even if the mayor of pittsburgh does act like an idiot as threatened at least all the rest of the country are free to ignore this piece of global warming nonsense.

  • Bob S

    Trump represents the citizens of Pittsburgh and Peduto represents Hillary Clinton. Now that’s funny!

    • bobnstuff

      For the President to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh he would have to do things that they support, he has done nothing. He came to Western Pa. and made some campaign promises, non of which he has done anything to fulfil, Steel jobs are never coming back. He has done nothing for Pittsburgh but has done and is trying to do much that hurts the city. The Healthcare bill will hurt the local economy, his cutting EPA regulations will hurt the environment. The cuts in funding of education will hurt local colleges, his cuts in research funding with do the same since our local colleges and universities do a lot of research. If Trump does represent the city he needs to first understand what it wants and what it needs. As of right now he does neither. The people of the city knew this before he became president and didn’t vote for him.

        He has only been in office 120 days. Give the man a chance. Who knows what the future holds. Most certainly it will be better than under Hillary.

        • bobnstuff

          Hillary had a plan, Trump has a bunch of tweets, big difference. By now every other president in history has gotten some things done, big things.

          • Kay F Cook

            If Trump didn’t tweet he could not connect with the people. The media does nothing but bad publicity. That’s why you haven’t heard stuff.

          • bobnstuff

            Two things, Tweets are not good communications and Trumps are worse then most. Second the media does report on what he says and does, it’s not their fault that he does and says stupid things and twists facts and lies. The first part of his trip he got good marks from the media, it was only after he made a fool of himself, weaken our influence and insulted our allies that they printed negative things.

          • bobnstuff

            If you had gone to Clintons web page you would have found details on what she planned to do and how she was going to do it. Page after page of details. Trump web page was very shout and gave no details just like his tax plan that fit on one page. Trump has no plan for anything he promised. I’m no big Clinton fan but at least she thought things our.

          • Bob

            Hillary had a plan that many Americans disagreed with, which is why she is no longer in public office.

          • bobnstuff

            I dough that you or most other people ever went to her web sight. The Clinton hatters didn’t, the non voters didn’t and most of her supporters didn’t. I’m pretty sure you didn’t even go to Trumps sight. You have little clue what she planned to do. As I say 4 months into his term Trump still has no plan and just wings everything. Answer this, what is Trumps plan to create jobs? He had a one page tax plan, more of a list then anything else. Have you seen a healthcare reform plan from him? He spent over a year running for president and the three months to create plans before he took office. Where are the details? As I said I’m no big Clinton supporter but at least she had a clue how to get things done. Trump needs to figure out how to be a president and soon.

          • Bob

            Homer, you can “dough” all you want, but I did read Hillary’s page and was not impressed. I also wen to Trumps “sight” and was also not all that impressed. I was more impressed listening to what was said, and not said, during the campaigns. Hillary lost because she alienated so many Americans and made it clear she could care less about so may of us. You and others can troll these sites all you want and try, along with the Democrats in Congress (the party of WAH WAH NO NO MINE MINE) to make it your mission in life to make it harder on the President to accomplish anything, and what will it get you? Not one dang thing because the American people have said they do NOT like your way of governing and were ready for real change, not just hope for change.

          • bobnstuff

            Clinton lost because she was a terrible candidate and no one showed up to vote. 54% turnout means only 27% of the registered voters voted for Trump.

          • Bob

            And 27% was enough for her to lose. She, and so many who supported her, will never admit it was because she was a miserable candidate who could not get her message across even with the compliance of 95% of the media.

          • gvette

            What you don’t understand is, It was part of Barry redistribution of OUR wealth, to others around the world. Smarten the fuck up Bob.

          • bobnstuff

            You never even looked or check out what she had planned, you excepted other opinion without even checking if they were lying. You are repeating the party line. Obama wasn’t trying to redistribute wealth he was trying to prevent the looting of America by the rich. You don’t have to fear that from Trump.

          • gvette

            Trump is one of the most greedy people on earth and he doesn’t pay good money. He is in the hospitality industry, one of the lowest paying fields. People have to sue him to get paid the money he owes them.

          • bobnstuff
          • gvette

            What a joke you are Bob. Before Trump was a politician, he was a business man.
            Killary Klinton received millions on the uranium one deal.

            As a Russian state nuclear corporation sought a majority share of Uranium One, a leading Uranium producer with mining rights in the U.S., former President Clinton was invited to Moscow to give a speech to Renaissance Capital.

            Renaissance Capital is an investment bank, “with ties to the Kremlin” according to the NY Times. Clinton was paid $500,000 for the one-hour speech.

            Then we have Maxine Waters with investments in Russia.
            Let me get this straight, It’s Ok for DemonRATS, but not for republicans.
            Now the funny part about Trumps income tax. The IRS is in the pocket of the DemonRAT party. They know exactly what’s in his returns. You’re still simple minded, Bob.

          • bobnstuff

            Please tell me you aren’t that stupid to believe the Uranium story. It has been disproved so many times that only a real sucker would fall for it. Here’s one little proof of how stupid it is. Who controls all exports of Uranium? I will give you a clue the agency is now headed by a guy with a degree in animal husbandry.

            Before Trump became president he was a businessman with a problem, no one would loan him money anymore. No American bank, no European bank. He had burned so many people that they stopped taking his calls. With out construction loans nothing gets done so he went to his friends in the Russian Mob for money. His sons bragged about having all the money they could want from them.

            He also got a line of credit from a bank, a Chinese bank. He has hundreds of millions of debt to both groups. Unlike the Uranium story these tails haven’t been disproved and in fact there is lots of proof out there. You see when you spend money it leaves a trail. Follow the money.

            Like I said, It’s Ok when DemonRATS deal with Russia, but not republicans. You never commented on Maxine Waters. Her investments in Russia!
            Let’s not forget the funny part. We give China financial aid, and then the government borrows from them. I guess, you being a liberal, see nothing wrong in that!

          • bobnstuff

            Russia bought a Canadian company that mines Uranium in the US. It’s kind of like buying a car that you can’t drive and can’t take home. All exports or even sales of Uranium are controlled by the department of energy. Also did the Russians also give money to the other eight people that had to sign off on this. If you read the article you will see that Clinton was only one of eight people who OKed the deal.

          • gvette

            LOL…She facilitated the sale, Bob, for a large donation.While she was Secretary of state! You didn’t read the article I sent, did you.

          • bobnstuff

            The sale of what, they got nothing from the US. What did the Russians get to take home? Also you should check the dates of those donations. I read that article and a number of others like it but I also checked the facts of the matter.

          • bobnstuff

            As far as I’m concerned to know someone with a plane you can use is much better then all the trouble of owning one. It sounds great to jet around but it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. The biggest pain is that you land about as far away from everything you can. If you want a rental car you are about a mile or more from the agency so you had better have someone that can get you their. You had also better have brought your own food unless you like vending machine snacks because at the private terminal in most cases there are no restaurants. It all looks great from a distance. Been there done that. It’s easier to just buy a ticket.

            One thing killary wanted is to do away with all power sources, other gang green energy. Here’s a partial list of Onggers green failures. Tax dollars gone!

            List Of Failed Green Energy Jobs & Companies – By Obama

            Update: 7/19/16: The Amonix Solar: FAIL! – manufacturing plant in North Las Vegas, subsidized by more than $20 million in federal tax credits and grants given by Obama Administration, has closed its 214,000 square foot facility a year after it opened.

            Solar Trust of America: FAIL! – Filed Bankruptcy in Oakland, CA, April 3, 2012

            Bright Source: FAIL! – Bright Source warned Obama’s Energy Department officials in March 2011 that delays in approving a $1.6 billion U.S. loan guarantee would embarrass the White House and force the solar-energy company to close. Bright Source lost billions of dollars but is getting more money to keep trying. Can you say, “This isn’t working Mr. President?”

            Solyndra: FAIL! – Obama gave $500,000,000 (that’s a HALF BILLION!) in taxpayer money to Solyndra who shut its doors and laid off 1100 workers in August 2011 after billions in losses due to failure to make a solar product that works! Barack Obama was not vetted before being elected President and neither was Solyndra before Mr. Obama threw that taxpayer money down the drain of unproven technology.

            LSP Energy: FAIL! – LSPEnergy LP filed bankruptcy protection and a sale of its assets in Feb 2012

            Energy Conversion Devices: FAIL! – On February 14, 2012 Energy Conversion Devices, Inc. and its subsidiaries filed for bankruptcy

            Abound Solar: FAIL! – Abound Solar received a $400 million loan guarantee from Barack Obama then announced in June, 2012 that it would file for bankruptcy. Many of these failed corporations, such as Abound, donated MILLIONS and continue to donate to Barack Obama’s campaign. Can you say, “Democrat Slush Fund”? Yes this is illegal. But Democrats are being protected from being prosecuted, for now.

            SunPower: FAIL! – SunPower stopped producing solar cells in 2011 at near bankruptcy then restructured with the help of, get this, oil giant TOTAL, Inc. who owns 60% stake in SunPower. Irony? The company is still struggling.

            Beacon Power: FAIL! – Beacon Power Corp filed for bankruptcy protection in October, 2011 just a year after Obama approved a $43 million Government loan guarantee. They remain barely in business, still struggling to make energy that makes sense or that works at all.

            Ecotality: FAIL! – ECOtality, a San Francisco green-tech company that never earned any money and remains on the verge of bankruptcy after receiving roughly $115 million in two loan guarantees from President Obama, who wants to do some more of this kind of Democrat Slush Fund Guarantees after he is elected to a 2nd term.

            A123 Solar: FAIL! – A123 Solar received $279 million from taxpayers thanks to President Obama’s Department of Energy loan guarantees even after the Solyndra bankruptcy and is getting another $500M from Obama after a loss of $400M.

            UniSolar: FAIL! – Uni-Solar filed for Ch 11 bankruptcy in June 20, 2012 after laying off hundreds of workers. UniSolar received even more Obama money after showing now progress, no profits and is still failing… yet they still remain in business with Obama’s help.

            Azure Dynamics: FAIL! – Azure Dynamics filed for bankruptcy in June , 2012 wasting millions in Obama “Stimulus” money and received abatement on taxes owed and and several tax credits. Azure Dynamics LLC filed for bankruptcy protection in Canada and the US. Azure laid off 120 of its 160 employees in Oak Park; Boston; Vancouver, British Columbia; and the UK.

            Evergreen Solar: FAIL! – Evergreen Solar received $527 Million in Taxpayer money from Obama and filed bankruptcy in late 2011. Evergreen, which closed its taxpayer-supported Devens factory in March, 2011 cut more than 1800 jobs. Evergreen’s $450 million factory, turned out to be a colossal “waste” of taxpayer money.

            Ener1: FAIL! Ener1 Inc. received a $118 million U.S. Energy Department grant from President Obama to make electric-car batteries but filed for bankruptcy protection January 2012 after defaulting on bond debt.

          • bobnstuff

            Gee, all those bankruptcies and Trump didn’t even own them. How much taxpayers money went down the drain in Atlantic City. How many Green jobs were created by the Green Energy, Renewable energy employees over 3 million people.

        And exactly how did Obama represent the citizens of Texas? Or Mississippi? Or Alaska? Or a myriad of other states he ignored to keep his good standing with the costal liberal elites? Did he ever represent, or even respect, the opinions of Conservative Americans? Or did he just tell Republicans to “get tot he back of the bus”?

        • bobnstuff

          Unlike Trump he listened and understood the needs of people. He did his best to serve the average man with healthcare, job creation and stabilizing the economy. Trump claims to have saved a few thousand jobs, Obama saved GM. Trump went on a trip and managed to weaken our alliances Obama got the nations of the world to work together. Do you see Trump uniting the planet, he can’t even unite his own party.

          Trump claims to care but his actions have all been aimed helping the very rich and big business. He figures if you give enough money to the rich so will trickle down to everybody else, We have heard this one before.

          • Bob

            “Obama saved GM” – BS, he gave it and Chrysler to the Unions. Ford saved itself despite Obama. Obama was an embarrassment and lead from behind in foreign policies. Do you wonder why Trump was so well received on this trip?
            “Obama got the nations of the world to work together.” by buying them off, as he did in this country. Trump is stopping the almost $1B given to dictators under the guise of “Climate Change”.

            Good you think Saudi and Israel are the minor league. Just like your man was convinced ISIS was the JV.
            “Just how do you buy China off?” $1B to a climate fund that they have some control over. They get our money for, what? The US has reduced emissions by about 18%, how about China and India? And the Paris accords were done by Executive signature, and can be undone the same way. Obama bypassed Congress cause he knew he’d loose.

            In fact if you look at where they are in the world they are minor players. They are not the world powers that the EU is or China, Russia or India. Oh and even EO’s aren’t all that easy to undo. You think a billion dollars for climite change is a lot of money. We give EXXON MOBLE $4.5 Billion each year.

        LOL..is that you, AK?

      • Josh Parker

        What are you talking about? The whole point of him pulling out of this thing was so that he can now implement those promises made? How could that not be clear? Furthermore, your oversimplified citations of things you are claiming Trump has done that will “hurt” this thing and that thing is hurting any reader who buys into such b.s. as they, like you, may not spend the time to research facts and instead will remain ignorant and jump on the same libtard brainwash train you seem to have jumped on. The mayor is an idiot. Like Bob S on here said: “Trump represents the citizens of Pittsburgh and Peduto represents Hillary Clinton. Now that’s funny!”

        • bobnstuff

          Frist thing Peduto’s views are pretty much shared by those that voted him in and it wasn’t a close election.

          Second you know those regulations to protect the environment , they are there for a reason. Pittsburgh was once one of the dirtiest cities in the country, our rivers were dead because of pollution and you couldn’t breath the air. Now you can fish in the rivers and bicycle without dying from the air. It took a lot of work but it was worth it. The environmental movement has its roots in Pittsburgh.

          Third the people in Pittsburgh are not as easy to fool as some people, we can see BS and know when we are being lied to. Trump came in here and said he would bring steel jobs back. We aren’t that stupid. We know those jobs are long gone. Our growth industries are Bio Tech and Robots.

          Forth and finale people don’t vote to get handout, That’s a myth made up by the right. More people get government aid in Republican states then in ones run by Democrats.

      • Bob S

        You didn’t mention how cutting government spending and allowing business and citizens to derermine how to spend their own money will hurt them.
        You seem to believe that the free market is bad and that everything the government does is wise and good and efficient…. after all, they are the best and brightest and have nothing but good intentions for us. Right?

        • bobnstuff

          So have you seen any cutting of spending? It’s not happening. What’s happening is they are cutting spending on the poor and middle class but increasing spending that profits the rich. Who makes money when we spend more on the military? Who makes more money when regulations are removed? Do you? I believe in the free market, where in Trumps plans is the free market? What his plans are is free greed. All Trump is doing is making it easier for the big companies to make more money at the expense of everyone else. Forget what they are saying and look at what they are doing.

          • Bob S

            You just said they are cutting spending on the poor and then ask who makes money on military spending. The folks who work the jobs, that’s who. Businesses make the money too. More money for the productive parts of society. A rising tide lifts all boats. The poor are better off when they have jobs and can control their own destiny, not when they’re on the government plantation. You mistake profits with greed but in reality, profits are the result of efficiency. How is it solar competes with fossil fuels? Government subsidies to greedy capitalists who bs us into the global warming, er… climate change hoax.
            And yes, I make more money when government regulations are relaxed. I have a cabinet business and the cost of finishing chemicals has risen 600 to 1000 percent in 10 years largely because of regulations.
            Remember, businesses are owned by people. Don’t be so quick to demonize business. That’s where most folks get a job and a paycheck that allows them possibility to live their dreams.
            Finally, what exactly is Trump doing that’s so bad? Don’t tell me what they are doing is bad. Use examples that speak for themselves, otherwise you’re asking me to believe you because you say so.

          • bobnstuff

            Total US government investment in renewable energy is $34 billion. Annual subsidy to fossil fuel is $37.5 billion.

            So you are a businessman, wouldn’t you love it if when someone ordered a cabinet you could quote a price then be late delivering it and ask for more money even before you have finished it. That’s the defense contractors game. Who owns these companies? Wall St. fund managers. They invest in these companies because the make good money, a much higher percentage then most on there investments. So a good bit of our tax dollars end up in pockets of those fund managers.

            Instead of investing in weapons we don’t need and that are over priced you invest the same money in people. You create jobs just like you do with defense but you in fact create more jobs because more of the money is being spent on goods and services, You also invest in education and culture, both good investments that pay off in the long run.

            Now you ask what is Trump doing that is bad? He is weakening our countries international standing and influence. He is giving comfort to our enemies and stress to our allies. He isn’t leading, he is trying to boss people around and doing a bad job of it. We lost a seat at the table of the Paris Accord and have a weaker standing in NATIO. He isn’t creating all those jobs he promised or much of any of the thing he said he would do day one. Most of all he has lied to the American people time and time again and his followers just eat up those lies. His reasons for pulling out of the Paris Accords were all based on lies. He said it was a bad deal, it wasn’t because we set the terms and even those weren’t binding. He said we couldn’t build coal fired power plants under the agreement even though the word coal isn’t in it any where. He said China was building 100’s of coal fired power plants but in fact they are shutting then down and have scraped plans for any new ones.

            Last but not least you claim your finishing chemicals went up 600% to 1000%, I find that very hard to believe. That means that what you paid $1 ten years ago now costs $600 to $1000. Sorry but I am not professional but I know that my supplies for doing the finishes on my projects hasn’t gone up all that much. I’m still paying less the $50 a gallon for polyurethane.

          • Bob S

            Indisputable
            #1 -government is wasteful
            #2- you’re not very good with math, 600 percent is 6 times not 60 times, MEK I buy rose from $5 to $30 a gallon.
            Maybe with this new found understanding of math you might revisit all of your previous conclusions on the goodness of government.
            So what if we (Obama) made up the rules for the Paris accord, it’s a bad deal whereby the cost of everything increases based on a big lie.

  • Norman Fox

    What a jack ass this liberal dumocrat is. The President stated what he stands for, and represents, and this ass just booted him to the side. He (mayor) should move to Paris and get the hell out of the United States of America. After all President Trump using a specific place Pittsburgh to say he represents the American people.

    • Dona McGilvary

      The mayor is not doing any research just having a knee jerk reactions. Too bad Pittsburgh didn’t vote for someone with enough brain cells to spark an a flame of understanding.

  • Humble Servant

    I expect nothing less from any mayor to keep the coarse, but blast Trump for what?? You are more then free to make your state a better place for us all to live but what does you statement have to do with anything but to give you your 5 minutes on TV. Go back to work and let your efforts define your time in office and stop grand standing for political favors. If what you believe is good for your state and the people are behind it you will have a great future in governing. If your state does not want to become a European nanny state you will be FIRED!!! Let your public be your guide. Choose well and live long. (sorry Star Trek was my favorite)

    • Dona McGilvary

      Great comments!

  • KT

    Well, Mayor of Pittsburgh…..you sure showed President Trump! What childish & immature behaviors are surfacing out all this political bull crap! No wonder the government can not get anything accomplished. Back bitting, slandering, purjuers, false accusations, Media bearing false witness & reporting lies, strife and all kinds of evil intents! Awaken America! We are closer to the return of Jesus Christ, than ever before…..Choose this day whom you will serve!

    • Dona McGilvary

      Pray that God will save our country, because these Democrats are trying hard to ruin what Obama left of it.
