White House denies reports that United States changing stance on Paris climate pact

"As the President has made abundantly clear, the United States is withdrawing unless we can re-enter on terms more favorable to our country".

These sycophants now officially have egg on their faces, as the Wall Street Journal reported today that Trump is reneging on his pledge to remove America from the Paris Climate accords that would destroy national sovereignty while restricting economic growth. In June, Trump vowed to renegotiate the deal or strike a new one.

In June, Donald Trump announced that the United States would withdraw from the agreement, an expected move on his part.

The Journal quoted European Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy Miguel Arias Cañete as saying top Trump officials stated that the US will not renegotiate the Paris accord, and will review the terms of how the USA can engage in the existing agreement.

The announcement was reportedly made by senior White House adviser Everett Eissenstat during a meeting of more than 30 worldwide ministers Saturday in Montreal. "The United States can do whatever it wants either way".
