On Thursday, President Trump dropped the truth hammer and defended his decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement. He later held a press conference to address critics about his decision.

That's when President Trump made a big time statement. In a speech on Thursday, he said: " I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris."

Fans were quick to support the President's words. Many of them used social media to show they stand with the President and believe in what he did. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz also praised President Trump for his decision.

The move shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. During his 2016 campaign, President Trump vowed to cancel the deal in one of his first major policy speeches about energy.

According to Fox News, The Paris Climate Agreement is a pact between nearly 200 nations to voluntarily reduce their greenhouse gas emissions in an effort to fight climate change. 

So, what do you think about this? Was it good for President Trump to cut ties with the Paris climate deal? Do you think this will help Americans?
