TRUMP: Paris Accord Is A Plan To ‘Redistribute Wealth Out Of The US’

President Donald Trump said a U.S. withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement is “in America’s economic interest and won’t matter much to the climate.” 
“The United States will withdraw from the Paris climate accord,” Trump said in the Rose Garden Thursday, announcing his pulling out of the Paris agreement, which the Obama administration joined in 2016. 
“I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris,” Trump said. Trump made good on his campaign promise to withdraw from the Paris agreement after months of internal struggle within the White House. 
Trump said Paris puts the U.S. at an economic disadvantage and is being pushed by economic competitors. 
“This agreement is less about the climate and more about other countries gaining a financial advantage over the United States,” Trump, specifically singling out China and India. China and India joined the Paris agreement in 2016, but neither have plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. 
China said it would “peak” emissions by 2030 and India has been promised foreign aid to boost green energy production. 
“They can do whatever they want for 13 years. Not us,” Trump said of China.

ChicagoTrib: Obama library will NOT house original documents....Surprise!
Scheduled to open in 2021, the Obama Presidential Center will rise in Jackson Park on the South Side. In a break from tradition, former President Barack Obama's official papers and artifacts will not be housed there but will be digitized and stored elsewhere by the National Archives and Records Administration and made available through loans.
