Trump Supporters: In There Own Words

At today’s announcement that the United States is pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement, the White House video feed was streamed live on Facebook. I cut and copied a swath of comments, not edited at all (and not all of them by any means. But reading them is instructive.

Dale Haagenstad Like he said anything we do and all the money we spend on this would be wiped out by China and All the many many country’s spuing crap all over the place.

Tatiana Alexandrov Leftist libs open your minds, hearts to reality and to the truth-you’ve been hoodwinked for so long by by the politicians you’ve venerated! No more!

Greg Zahn John Carpenter, I really think you’d love the Ivory Coast …. or maybe Uganda or Somalia ….. why don’t you take your pathetic countenance there? You’re not going to like the continued losing in 2018, 2020, 2022 and beyond! :D

Angela Padovani Good try Christopher — the people who are so hatefully applauding this do read or think and will be tragically unmoved by you evidence or pleas

Roy Preston North Korea or ISIS is going to kill us long before the environment.

Pamela Horsburgh Amazingly these left people are crying about the climate when everyone of their protests trashed this country hypocrisy all left idiots.

Lew Pepper Anyone out there concerned about the impatc of carbon-based climate change? CO2 doesn’t recognize national boundaries even if you think it is the only thing that matters. What do you propose? Should we just ignore the problem?

George Hutchinson Well it’s about time we’ve got an honest politician who does what he says he’s going to do. We can leave the nothing burgers To the Hillary Clinton’s of this world. What a breath of fresh air after eight years of Obama.

Carl Forscht I wish the damage from climate change only effected conservatives, their children and other deniers. Sadly it doesn’t work that way. Leading from behind is not possible.

Tom Bowen Mr president disregard nasty comments from people who walk around with the blinders on. There are millions that support you, and your doing a great job.

Mike Brisbois YOU are giving up our economic edge by yielding our world leadership position.

Jo Wilcox Ebbert No deal necessary, man caused climate change is a hoax and carbon tax credits are the biggest scam of all. Look who’s behind that scam and you’ll see, it’s all about the money.
