Statement from U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross on Withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement

Today, President Trump took one more important step towards restoring the primacy of American workers and American businesses by unshackling them from the terrible deal that is the Paris Climate Accord. That deal imposes little responsibility on the world’s largest emitters, while costing the U.S. economy three trillion dollars in reduced output, six million industrial jobs, and three million manufacturing jobs. That amount of economic carnage is unjustified, and so we welcome this long overdue action in defense of the American people.
