Looking on while President Trump decides whether or not to honor the Paris climate accord, former Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday urged him to consider how the treaty may affect the next generation.
Back in 2016, Kerry brought his little granddaughter with him to the United Nations and held her perched on his lap as he signed the climate change agreement on April 22. On Wednesday, someone on Twitter remembered the photo and asked if Trump’s granddaughter would be on his lap if he signs an executive order pulling the U.S. out of the agreement.
“Good question,” replied Kerry via Twittter. “But more importantly: billions of grandkids will have to live with this decision, however it lands. Think of them, please.”
It’s been reported that Trump is leaning towards pulling out of the Obama-era deal, which was originally signed by roughly 200 nations back in 2015.
Throughout his presidential campaign, Trump promised he would end the U.S.’ involvement in the agreement. The president will announce his final decision “over the next few days,” he said.
Good question. But more importantly: billions of grandkids will have to live with this decision, however it lands. Think of them, please. https://t.co/mEFY1dKm1w
