Hollywood star outraged over Trump’s “America First” message

Oscar-winning actress Julie Andrews made it clear on her Facebook page that she is “deeply disturbed” by President Trump’s decision to pull the United States out of the Paris climate agreement, and she scoffed at the notion that “one place, or one person comes ‘first’”.

President Trump’s announcement that the U.S. would no longer be a part of the climate change pact, which included the following sentiments: “In order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the United States will withdraw from the Paris climate accord,” apparently struck the liberal actress as distasteful.

“We’ve been given stewardship of this magnificent planet… shouldn’t we all share the responsibility for its protection and preservation?” she wrote, adding, “I am deeply disturbed by the decision to withdraw America from the Paris Climate Agreement. I stand with the growing number of artists, scientists, educators and business leaders who recognize that no one place or person comes ‘first.'”

She recently spoke out against the president’s proposed budget cuts to the National Endowment for the Arts.
