The Paris Agreement is an agreement that deals with greenhouse gas emissions mitigation. Many countries have signed it, including the United States. Barack Obama has agreed that his country will make its contribution in order to reduce global warming. Now that Trump is our president, he decided to withdraw our country from the agreement. According to him, it harms the American economy and sovereignty. He also wants to negotiate a new deal with better terms for the United States. Of course, this didn’t make Obama happy and he condemned Trump for pulling our country from the Agreement.

Obama Criticized Trump for Killing His Climate Legacy- the only Legacy he Had Left.
What Barack Hussein Obama does not realize is that President Trump is not “rejecting the future”, he is moving way from poorly negotiated deals where the American people and American lose out by bearing most of the cost and receiving very little, if any, of the benefits. President Trump announced that he would renegotiate and re-enter the Paris treaty if it is fair and beneficial to the US.
“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’ve got.”

According to Breitbart:
Obama recalled his “steady, principled” leadership on the climate change agreement and “bold American ambition” that convinced other countries to follow their lead.
“The nations that remain in the Paris Agreement will be the nations that reap the benefits in jobs and industries created,” he said.
Obama praised business interests for investing in green energy, but did not mention the government subsidies that made it possible.
Despite his assertion that he wanted to remain silent after leaving office, Obama has broken that promise on multiple occasions to criticize President Trump.
The reality is this: The Paris climate agreement was not a good deal and President Donald J. Trump is here to make good deals for the American people. It’s not about whether or not climate change exists, it’s about America First when we negotiate on behalf of the American people. The United States is no longer going to pay way more than our share for everything and protect our European allies while apologizing for not doing more and kissing everyone’s a**. That was the weak Obama way. He’s gone and his speech yesterday confirmed what a fool he is.
“Consider this, if the Paris agreement was so good for us all, so widely supported, and so vital to our planet’s survival – why wasn’t it a treaty, agreed to by the Senate, and set in stone. If President Obama had done that, we would not be discussing withdrawal. But he knew he couldn’t get a treaty through the Senate, so now another part of his legacy will be reversed.” Stuart Varney— Varney & Co.
Barack Obama can say whatever he wants, after all, we have freedom of speech. However, this doesn’t mean that he will change Trump’s mind. Also, Obama attacks Trump for all his moves so the latest attack didn’t come as a surprise.
