Isolated US Lashes Out at Climate Critics

Greenpeace activists wearing masks of U.S. President Donald Trump protest against his decision that the United States will withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement in front of the U.S. embassy in Prague Czech Republic

U.S. President Donald Trump said he represented "the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris" when he announced the U.S. withdrawal from the historic climate agreement signed in the French capital.

Haley's comments are the closest acknowledgement by an administrative authority since Trump took office that the President -who has called climate change a "hoax" on multiple occasions - believes global warming is occurring and humanity has a role in it. "I just want to be clear on this: You're not willing to acknowledge that calling climate change a Chinese hoax is just a big box of insane?"

And her interpretation of Trump's decision that the US should no longer participate in an worldwide agreement seeking to curb global warming?

In the excerpts of the interview released on Saturday, Haley did not explain why the United States did not stay inside the accord and amend United States targets. "That is where we are".

Amid furious worldwide criticism of Trump's decision Thursday to quit the Paris climate agreement, White House spokesmen had refused on Friday to say whether the president even believed the climate was changing.

The US will "continue to be a leader in the environment", but do so "under our terms", she added. On Thursday, he made scarce mention of it in his lengthy remarks announcing America's exit from the Paris accord.

"The withdrawal from the Paris Agreement, when set against the backdrop of the earlier withdrawal from TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership), further narrows the window for us business and workers to participate in - and benefit from - some of the fastest growing markets in the world", said Livingston.

Although Putin's government signed the Paris climate accord in 2015, the Russian leader has delayed formally ratifying the agreement for at least two more years. "Just because we got out of a club doesn't mean we don't care about the environment". A recent Yale University poll found that nearly 70 percent of Americans, including almost half of Trump voters, supported the USA sticking with the Paris agreement.

Spicer won't say whether Trump has confidence in Sessions
Top White House spokesman Sean Spicer won't say whether the president has confidence in Attorney General Jeff Sessions . The investigation of potential Trump campaign collusion with the Kremlin has gotten under the President's skin.

Rather than mourn the huge setback that Trump's decision represents in the battle to save the planet from highly destructive changes in climate conditions, many US state and local leaders are treating Trump as irrelevant to what they are trying to accomplish.

Other Trump administration members have outright dodged this issue.

As Buzzfeed points out, Trump's said in the past that we shouldn't trust what his aides tell us.

"The president said actually back during the campaign that climate change occurs", Pruitt told host Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday".

Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors will be looking to take a commanding 3-0 series lead after flexing their muscle in Game 2. Lebron James had a triple-double with 29 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds for the Cavs .

"In some ways, I don't think Trump's decision to pull out is as meaningful as he might think it is when the train has already left the station", Hoagland added.
