Tea Party Patriots Thank President Trump for Keeping His Promise to Withdraw from Paris Accord


Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots President and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, reacting to President Trump’s announcement the United States is withdrawing from the Paris Accord.

“Tea Party Patriots thanks President Donald Trump for continuing to keep the promises he made during the campaign by announcing the United States will withdraw from the Paris Accord, which is a drag on our economy and a bad deal for American workers. Once again, President Trump has continued to keep his word to the American people both on specific initiatives like the Paris Accord and his broader promise to put our citizens and America first. According to a study by NERA Consulting, the requirements in the Paris Accord agreed to by the Obama Administration could cost our economy almost $3 trillion over the next several decades and have a catastrophic effect on American jobs. We could lose over 6 million industrial jobs, including more than 3 million manufacturing jobs, by 2040 if we insisted on sticking with the terrible deal negotiated by the Obama Administration and signed out of desperation. Thankfully, we have a President in Donald Trump who is dedicated to keeping his promises and putting American workers and America first and we will be much better off as a country thanks to this courageous decision by the president.”
