In a highly anticipated speech at the White House Rose Garden today, Trump announced that he would pull out of the Paris Agreement. Although widely condemned by the international community, Trump struck back.

While he thought he could scapegoat a random blue-collar city with no knowledge of Pittsburgh’s support for the pact, the Mayor of Steel City quickly responded.

Once again underestimating the American people, Trump figured he could get away with pandering to his cronies in the fossil fuel industries in the name of supporting the will of his voters. Evidenced by this tweet, however, Trump was gravely mistaken.

It is also important to note that, once again, Trump did not do his homework when invoking his supposed “supporters,” as he lost all three counties in Pittsburgh to Hillary Clinton in the election.

Even a city steeped in such a rich tradition of manufacturing is aware that renewable energy is the future. As the rest of the world adopts this technology, Trump’s futile attempt to reverse this trend will only serve to position the United States far behind the international community. In his short time in office, the President’s policies are a far cry from “America First.”
