Merkel calls out Trump over Paris accord, renews commitment to fight climate change
June 20, 2018
German Chancellor Angela Merkel took aim Tuesday at U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris accord, calling the move "very regrettable" at a time when the overwhelming majority of countries worldwide are trying to limit global warming.
"We know climate change isn't a matter of faith," she told an international climate meeting in Berlin. "It's a fact."
Trump announced last year that the U.S. will pull out of the accord negotiated by his predecessor unless he can "get a better deal."
