Donald Trump believes climate is changing, says Nikki Haley

"That's the reason it put us at an economic disadvantage internationally".

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, also on Sunday's "Meet The Press", was one of the members of the administration to push President Trump to exit the agreement, and firmly defended the president's decision Sunday morning, including repeating his assertion that other nations around the world applauded the USA previously signing on because "it put us at an economic disadvantage".

"The withdrawal of the United States from the Paris accord indicates the government's lack of responsibility regarding the global community and it will increasingly isolate them", foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi said, according to the IRNA news agency.

Days after President Trump announced that he would be pulling the USA out of a global agreement to fight climate change, more than 1,200 business leaders, mayors, governors and college presidents have signaled their personal commitment to the goal of reducing emissions.

Iran is concerned that Trump may also make good on his threat to pull out of the nuclear deal signed with the United States and five other world powers in 2015 that lifted sanctions in exchange for curbs to Tehran's atomic program.

On Sunday, Pruitt accused what he called the "environmental left" of false outrage at the president's decision to exit the agreement, which was signed in late 2015. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., ranking member of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Europe and Regional Security Cooperation, released a statement Thursday chastising the president for his decision.

"We've had over 50,000. coal jobs, mining jobs created in this country" in the last few months, Pruitt said.

"There are ... thoughtful leaders who care about the environment, who care about the world that we have inherited from our ancestors, who care deeply about the world that we're passing on to our chidlren", said Benjamin. But we can't sit there and have Angela Merkel telling us to worry about Africa. "But American sovereignty matters", Haley said. "Climate change is real. He is absolutely intent on making sure that we have clean air, clean water, that he makes sure that we're doing everything we can to keep America's moral compass in the world when it comes to the environment", she said.

"We've done that in the past". "It was not flawless, some critics at the time felt that it did not go far enough", says the host, "but the key achievement was for the very first time getting virtually the entire world, including China and India, to commit to taking action".
