Donald Trump will withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement for the second time in history if he wins the presidential election in November.

This was stated by his campaign spokeswoman Caroline Leavitt in an interview with Politico.

Here is a timeline of how the United States went back and forth:

  • in 2015, under the presidency of Barack Obama, the United States joined the Paris Agreement, which is designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Donald Trump comes to power in 2020 and reverses this move. He first announced his decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement back in 2017.
  • in January 2021, Joe Biden brought the US back into the deal on the very first day of his presidency.

Analysts say that conservatives have been laying the groundwork for another withdrawal from the global agreement for years. They have prepared draft orders that Trump can quickly sign if he returns to the White House.

Trump's move was not a surprise, given his first appearance and lobbying by conservatives. During a debate with President Joe Biden on June 27, Trump railed against the Paris Agreement, calling it a "robbery from the United States" and a "disaster."

In May, EcoPolitic wrote about what Bloomberg NEF analysts named 2 updated scenarios for achieving the main goal of the Paris Agreement, and also about what world court recognized the inadequacy of the Paris Agreement to combat global warming.
