    Default Trump on Paris accord: 'We're getting out'

    President Donald Trump proclaimed Thursday he was withdrawing the US from the Paris climate accord, a sweeping step that fulfills a campaign promise while acutely dampening global efforts to curb global warming.

    Speaking from the White House, Trump said he was open to renegotiating aspects of the agreement, which was inked under his predecessor and which all nations except two have signed onto.

    But he was withering in his criticism of the pact, which he cast as a humiliating defeat for American workers that unfairly advantaged foreign countries.
    "At what point does America get demeaned? At what point do they start laughing at us as a country?" Trump inquired during an afternoon event held in a sun-drenched Rose Garden.

    "We want fair treatment," Trump said. "We don't want other countries and other leaders to laugh at us anymore."

    Trump, who has governed with an "American First" policy, said Thursday he was carrying out the will of the voters who propelled him to the White House.
    "I was elected by the citizens of Pittsburgh," Trump said, "not Paris."

    "Massachusetts Institute of Technology officials said U.S. President Donald Trump badly misunderstood their research when he cited it on Thursday to justify withdrawing the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement."

    We already knew he can't read. No surprise here.

    Leading without regard or working with bad intelligence? Please don't tell me there is little or no evidence of intelligence concerning Trump.

    Considering the source, I'd say Trump must be a Rhodes Scholar!!
