John Kerry said...'The inescapable fact is that Trump is not putting America first by pulling out of something for a phony reason – for a nonexistent burden. There is no imposed burden by the world. Getting out of Paris is completely contrived and an extremely damaging step. It doesn't put America first, it puts America last. It makes America walk away from the leadership that we have shown for years now. The Paris agreement was not some overnight back-room move on a real estate action. It was 10 years in the making, enormously hard to get at, a product of a major diplomatic effort, and he's just walking away from that. He threw it away. He threw away America's leadership. That's extremely damaging to our credibility, it's damaging to the momentum, which is critical, and it's damaging to America's economy.'
