Protesters rallied outside the White House on Thursday, June 1, the day that President Trump announced the United States’ withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement. This footage shows participants at the rally calling Trump a “puppet of the polluters” and holding anti-Trump signs. In his announcement of the withdrawal, Trump said the treaty was not actually about climate change but a “a redistribution of US wealth to other countries,” giving them an “economic advantage over the US.” Trump added that he “will begin negotiations to reenter either the Paris Accord or, really, an entirely new transaction.” French President Emmanuel Macron, along with other world leaders, responded by calling climate change “one of the major issues of our time.” Syria and Nicaragua are the only other countries not to have signed the agreement.
