Trump announced in June that he was, calling it "less about the climate and more about other countries gaining a financial advantage over the United States". "It took away a lot of our asset values", Trump said.
At a press conference with visiting Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, President Trump criticized the deal the US had signed up for in the Paris Agreement. It made it very hard for us to deal in terms of business.
Trump said the Paris agreement was very unfair to the United States because it imposed penalties and took away many USA asset values.
Trump justified his decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate accord, saying there was a "tremendous" penalty for using the countrys rich in gas and coal and oil and that hurt American businesses. "According to some estimates, we would have had to close businesses in order to qualify by 2025".

While Trump announced the exit in June, the accord does not allow nations to submit exit paperwork until November 2019, to be effective in November 2020. The Post posits that Trump, who was reading from a statement, likely saw the number of jets delivered-52-and mistakenly added an "F" designation to it. Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders refused to say if Trump is a Call of Duty fan, and Lockheed Martin, which makes the F-35, wouldn't say if an F-52 is in the works.
"We are very strong on the environment", the president continued. "China, by 2030-they don't kick in until 2030", he said as an example. "So we could conceivably go back in". It made it very hard for us to deal in terms of business.
"The Paris accord really would have taken away our competitive edge, and we're not going to let that happen", he said.Mr Trump has claimed in the past that the agreement would cost the USA $3tn in lost GDP and 6.5 million jobs - while rival economies like China and India were treated more favourably.
