Trump On Climate Deal: I Was Elected To Represent The Citizens Of Pittsburgh, Not Paris (VIDEO)

This will go down in history as one of Trump’s greatest lines. He announced today that he was taking the U.S. out of the Paris climate change accord and used this line as part of his explanation for doing so.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

President Trump said he was elected to represent the citizens of “Pittsburgh, not Paris,” during remarks Thursday explaining his decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement.

“We want fair treatment for our taxpayers,” he said. “We don’t want other leaders and other countries laughing at us anymore, and they won’t be. They won’t be. I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris.”

Trump appeared to name-drop Pittsburgh because of its historic ties to the coal and manufacturing industries.

However, Democratic Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto rejected Trump’s words, saying his city would follow the guidelines of the agreement to curb greenhouse gas emissions.

It’s been said many times before but it bears repeating: This is why Trump won. His desire to put America and American workers first is a welcome change.

It’s something so basic yet it has been forgotten by almost everyone in Washington, DC.
