In announcing plans to pull the us out of the Paris climate accord, President Donald Trump declared that he was "elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris". "He has received awards as a businessman, in that regard".
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson answers a question from the media.
In his first public comments on President Donald Trump's move, Tillerson called it a policy decision by the president.
Taking the podium after Pruitt, White House press secretary Sean Spicer also dodged questions about Trump's beliefs regarding climate change. A Vox analysis found that Trump has tweeted such skepticism at least 115 times since 2011, describing global warming as "mythical", "nonexistent", "fictional", an "expensive hoax" and "bulls--".
Pruitt resorted to talking about the advances the US has made in curbing its carbon emissions.
And whenever NY was hit with a cold spell or snowstorm, Trump would often tweet a joke about global warming. Reilly told Reuters the White House did not contact MIT scientists or offer them a chance to explain their work before Trump used it in his speech at the Rose Garden this week.
Pruitt was criticized for a March interview with CNBC during which he asserted that carbon dioxide is not the main cause of global warming, which he repeated on Friday using different wording. Nevertheless, the announcement was appalling in its rejection of the science and history of climate change, and smacked of the U.S. president's contempt for India and China.
Second reporter: I'd like to go back to the first question that was asked that you didn't answer. "I'm a little anxious that you're putting your head in the sand on that", Acosta said. Spicer responded: "I will try".
It's a fine line to walk for even the most dextrous of White House communications teams - let alone one that has to be concerned that the next time the president is asked the question, there's no telling what he might say.
Spicer said Friday, when asked again, that he had not had the opportunity to have that discussion. "As of today, the United States will cease all implementation of the non-binding Paris accord and the draconian financial and economic burdens the agreement imposes on our country", Trump said.
"We're going to have the cleanest air". Together with Governments and civil society, the UN Global Compact stands ready to mobilize a global movement of responsible companies and stakeholders to create the world we want.
President Trump walks to a White House gathering Thursday to announce his plan to withdraw the us from the climate pact. They asked White House advisor Kellyanne Conway during a television appearance Friday morning.
It's clear at this point that the administration has no interest in clarifying Mr Trump's position on climate change. "That's the discussion I've been having with the president, so that's been my focus".
The reporter followed up: "So is that a yes?"
"I think the people of Pittsburgh understand that this is a global problem", said Angeli, a 29-year-old digital communications manager.
The high court has a 5-4 conservative majority, with the administration needing five votes to put the ban into effect. Even with Gorsuch aboard, though, Justice Anthony Kennedy probably will be in the majority whatever the outcome.
