As Joe Biden edges closer to becoming the next President of the United States, he’s already giving insight into what we can expect if, or maybe when, he steps foot in the White House.
Back in 2017, Donald Trump controversially announced that the US would be withdrawing from the Paris Agreement.
In a statement three years ago, the President said:
As President, I can put no other consideration before the wellbeing of American citizens. The Paris Climate Accord is simply 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.
But America’s plans to back out of the agreement could be overturned in just 77 days if Biden wins the election.
In a tweet, Biden confirmed:
Today, the Trump Administration officially left the Paris Climate Agreement. And in exactly 77 days, a Biden Administration will rejoin it. https://t.co/L8UJimS6v2— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) November 5, 2020
One thing is for certain, the next 77 days will certainly be eventful.
