At a December climate change summit there will be one person missing from the discussions. President Donald Trump is not invited to the summit “for the time being” that is scheduled to be held in France next month, Reuters reported Tuesday.
The guest list for the summit features more than 100 countries and nongovernmental organizations committed to implementing the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement that President Trump pulled the United States from back in June. The information about the invitation was told to Reuters by an official from France’s President Emmanuel Macron’s office. While President Trump won’t be invited to represent the U.S. a lower-level official might be able to make the list if they wished, according to Reuters.
President Trump made the decision to withdraw the U.S. from the agreement because he believes it is bad for America. In his speech during which he announced that the country would no longer agree to the terms of the agreement he called the accord, “the latest example of Washington entering into an agreement that disadvantages the United States to the exclusive benefit of other countries, leaving American workers — who I love — and taxpayers to absorb the cost in terms of lost jobs, lower wages, shuttered factories, and vastly diminished economic production.”
