Trump tells U.N. U.S. leaving Paris climate accord

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SAYING: "The United States will withdraw from the Paris climate accord." It was a pledge U.S. President Donald Trump made back in 2017... and on Monday, his administration made a it a reality, formally notifying the United Nations that the United States will withdraw from the Paris Agreement.

It's the first formal step in a one-year process to exit the global pact to fight climate change.

In a bid to boost U.S. oil, gas and coal industries, Trump had vowed to pull out of the accord, citing an economic disadvantage if it were to remain part of it.

The United States, the world's largest historic greenhouse gas emitter, would become the only country outside the accord.

The State Department letter to United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres started the clock on a process that would be completed one day after the 2020 U.S. presidential election, on Nov.

4, 2020.

Environmental groups said they hoped Trump would be defeated in 2020 by a rival who would re-join the agreement with bold new targets.
