Trump pulls United States out of climate pact: is China set to lead?

Peabody Energy, the US's largest publicly traded coal company, also praised the decision, claiming the current agreement could have damaged the USA economy.

A number of figures from US industry expressed their dismay at Trump's move.

It takes place alongside the two-day EU-China political summit, which began on Thursday.

"Americans will honour and fulfill the Paris agreement by leading from the bottom up - and there isn't anything Washington can do to stop us", former NY mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg said. China would "be allowed to build hundreds of additional coal plants" and "increase its emissions by a staggering number of years - 13".

A group of leaders from USA cities, states and corporations are working to negotiate with the United Nations to combat climate change in the United States after the federal government began the process of withdrawing from the Paris agreement.

Supporters of the accord called Trump's move a blow to global efforts to curb the warming of the planet that threatens far-reaching consequences for this century and beyond.

Youngstown, Ohio, Mayor John McNally (D) said he supports the Paris agreement in a phone interview Friday, adding he was surprised at the shoutout from Trump.

"The UK's position on the Paris agreement remains as it always has been", she said.

"We are grateful to Bloomberg Philanthropies for this generous contribution", UNFCCC Executive Secretary Patricia Espinosa said in a news release about the funding pledge. Many major corporations like Exxon, Shell, and Walmart had urged Trump to keep the United States in the Paris accord.

"It's not what China needs to do, it is not about what the United States has pushed China to do: quite the contrary, it's what China wants to do".

They said the pair had also agreed on the importance of continued cooperation on wider energy issues.

The group is still hashing out the details after an initial rush of statements from mayors condemning Trump's decision, Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton (D) said in a phone interview Thursday.

The U.S. was supposed to provide an additional $2 billion, but Trump has balked at that idea, and his proposed budget includes cuts to worldwide climate programs.

Climate issues were expected to dominate discussions between Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, who is leading a large delegation of ministers to Brussels, and EU Council President Donald Tusk and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker.
