On President Joe Biden’s first day in office, he signed an executive order that began the process for the U.S. to rejoin the climate accord.

In 2017, President Trump announced that he would be withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris agreement.

During his June 1, 2017 announcement, President Trump said, “I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris. I promised I would exit or re-negotiate any deal which fails to serve America’s interests. Many trade deals will soon be under re-negotiation.”
