Trump: Time to end Paris accord, lower taxes

Commenting on the Yellow Vests protests in France, United States President Donald Trump called for the termination of the Paris Accords on Saturday, proposing tax cuts as a way to "return money back to the people."

"Very sad day & night in Paris. Maybe it’s time to end the ridiculous and extremely expensive Paris Agreement and return money back to the people in the form of lower taxes? The U.S. was way ahead of the curve on that and the only major country where emissions went down last year!" Trump tweeted.

Earlier today, Trump stated that the Paris Agreement "isn’t working out so well for Paris," adding that people do not want to pay "large amounts of money" to "maybe protect the environment."
