President Donald Trump announced Thursday that the United States will withdraw from the Paris climate agreement. In doing so, the United States will join Syria and Nicaragua as the only countries that reject the agreement.

The chairman of the Cache County Democratic Party, Danny Beus, says he feels disappointed and also scared over Trump’s decision.

“Scientists have shown that climate change is real,” Beus exclaims, “and that the earth is warming. The Paris climate agreement was to ensure that countries were being held accountable to reduce our impact on global warming.”

Beus says unfortunately once again Trump is taking actions to help a few millionaires and billionaires at the expense of the American people. He says withdrawal from the Paris agreement is a step in the wrong direction.
