In the middle of President Trump’s speech announcing his decision to pull America out of the Paris global climate agreement, former President Barack Obama released a statement urging environmentalists to stay the course.

During a ceremony in the White House Rose Garden, Trump attempted to explain that exiting the climate agreement would boost job growth in the U.S.

“In order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the United States will withdraw from the Paris climate accord,” Trump said, “but begin negotiations to reenter either the Paris Accord or an entirely new transaction on terms that are fair to the United States, its business, its workers, its people, its taxpayers. So we’re getting out, but we will start to negotiate and see if we can make a deal that’s fair. And if we can, that’s great. And if we can’t, that’s fine.”

As Trump was going on…and on, Barack Obama released a statement addressing Trump’s reversal of his decision in September 2016 to address climate change by joining the Paris Agreement.

Obama’s statement:

“A year and a half ago, the world came together in Paris around the first-ever global agreement to set the world on a low-carbon course and protect the world we leave to our children,” said the former president in the statement, which credited “bold American ambition” in the landmark global move.

Adding in part, “The nations that remain in the Paris Agreement will be the nations that reap the benefits in job and industries created. I believe the United States of America should be at the front of the pack. But even in the absence of American leadership; even as this Administration joins a small handful of nations that reject the future; I’m confident that our states, cities, and businesses will step up and do even more to lead the way, and help protect for future generations the one planet we got.”

    Trump is so dumb that if you gave him a quiz about the basics of the Paris Climate Control agreement, he would get a big red “F.” He hasn’t spent anytime reading about climate control or global warming to have an intelligent opinion. He was outclassed by the other leaders on the disastrous trip and he reacted out of spite. Of course, he reacts to any of Pres. Obama’s accomplishments. He rather destroy the U.S.’s standing in the world than to support Pres. Obama’s well reasoned policies or ideas. He acted out of spite regarding the Paris Climate Control agreement because of Obama, and because of the more intelligent and classier French president Macron who refused to let that idiot yank his hand and shoulder out of his armpit. Trump and his supporters are the worse bunch of morons.

    #45 can take away every accomplishment that President Barak Obama achieved, but there will be one thing this animal #45 with clothes on cannot do, and that is take away the fact that America had her first Black President of the United States. #45 is so jealous of the Obamas. Unfortunately, you can’t compare apples to oranges, or better yet, class (Obama) to a$$$$$$$ (#45).

    • No the super predators are those that would walk in a church and blow away 8 people or those on the police force that will kill a man if he don’t move fast enough, or shoot people in the back and say they’re life was in danger or bomb a church full of people or kill a young man for some perceived slight [Emitt Till] and the list goes on and on. Super predator! Sit FOOL U CRAZY!

      • Or the ones who hide in the trunk of a car and kill innocent people just for the thrill. Or the ones who kill prostitutes and have sex with the dead corpses. The list goes on, and involves all races. Trying to separate evilness by race is just plain ignorant. For every act of depravity committed by one race, you can find the same act committed by any other race. Stop the ignorance.

    Mr. Obama continues to be the class act that #45 will never be. He never attacks #45 (since the campaign trail), we he speaks out, he only encourages and restores faith to the good intelligent and competent folks of America. The ignorant will stay that way until they die, so there is no hope for them. But we that know better, will continue to do better and stay the course. Kudos to Mr. Obama for always seeing the positive. He the real ROYALTY of the U.S.
    Years from now, even after we’re dead, #45 will always be on the wrong side of history. What a terrible legacy to leave.

      The trumpster’s legacy will be that he rescinded everything good the blk man did. He is so jealous of prez Obama, it makes his head spin. But it’s all good because he can’t destroy Obama’s legacy, but he’s ruining his own. This clown thanks global warming is a hoax. The hoax is him being elected prez. Oh, my bad. It’s a damn nitemare.

  7. Diane on said:

    Anything with Obama’s name on it, this racsit in Cheif will do away with. He’s too ignorant to realize, he’s not hurting Obama, he’s hurting the American ppl with his asinine decisions. Elections have consequences and we are reaping the deplorable results of ppl not getting off their asses and voting. And we have to deal with an incompetent, narcissistic, ass hole, who doesn’t knw his ass from the hole in the ground. PATHETIC.
