ALG urges President Trump to affirm U.S. withdrawal from the Paris climate accord and put America first

May 31, 2017, Fairfax, Va.–Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging President Donald Trump to publicly affirm U.S. withdrawal from the Paris climate accord:

“President Trump will absolutely be doing the right thing by withdrawing from the Paris climate accord, which like all the other bad economic deals the has U.S. entered into, is designed to shift production, jobs and growth away from the U.S. to foreign markets. Paris is economic redistribution writ large. It might as well have been called the Grow China Treaty.

“After the worst decade of average annual economic growth in U.S. history from 2007 to 2016, even worse than the Great Depression, it is time for the U.S. to put America first for a change. We are under no obligation to enter an economic suicide pact to help the rest of the world to grow at our expense. The federal government’s first responsibility is to the American people, and to put in place policies that serve U.S. interests, including creating jobs here and rebuilding the middle class that decades of globalization have shattered.”

“Leaving the Paris climate accord is the only real choice to restoring American economic growth.”
