Donald Trump Plans to Renegotiate Paris Climate Deal, Saying Agreement Bad for the United States
The republican presidential aspirant has boldly announced that if ever he was elected as the next president of the United States, he will do his best to renegotiate America's role in the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, potentially derailing the so-called last stand of man against the reckoning force of nature.
In an interview, Trump told Reuters that all the agreements are all one-sided and bad for the United States.
"I will be looking at that very, very seriously, and at a minimum I will be renegotiating those agreements, at a minimum. And at a maximum I may do something else," said Trump.
The New York real estate mogul also noted that China won't keep in its end of the bargain.
"Not a big fan because other countries don't adhere to it, and China doesn't adhere to it, and China's spewing into the atmosphere," Trump continued.
Trump has been known to deny that climate change is induced by man. He even dubbed global warming as hoax, con job and Chinese plot to overthrow the manufacturing industry of the United States.
The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.

The United States, under the Obama Administration, has pledged to reduce its production of domestic green house gases by 26 to 28 percent until 2025. China, on the other hand, promised to halt the increase of their carbon emissions by 2030.
In previous report, former Alaska governor and huge supporter of Donald Trump, Sarah Palin voices out her own opinions on climate change while lashing out in the credibility of Bill Nye, the Science Guy, as a scientist.
She even endorsed the anti-climate change film "Climate Hustle", a 75-minute film featuring scientists debunking man-made global warming.
The Paris Agreement on Climate Change was developed in hopes to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change by keeping a global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
