Fact Checking Trump's Paris Agreement Speech

Trump veered into inaccurate territory several times

President Donald Trump announced his intention for the United States to leave the Paris climate agreement on Thursday in a lengthy and rambling speech that veered into inaccurate territory several times, NBC News reported.

In his speech, Trump painted a picture of a global cabal dictating America's actions and economy.

"We can't build the [coal] plants, but [China] can, according to this agreement," Trump said.

But the Paris accord doesn't bar America, or any of the countries that are a part of it, from doing anything.
