Hmmm. Things being reported, then the WH says its not so. Sounds like the DACA deal.

Should his base be outraged? Another "mis spoken" Presidential gaffe?


NEW YORK—Trump administration officials said Saturday the U.S. wouldn’t pull out of the Paris Agreement, offering to re-engage in the international deal to fight climate change, according to multiple officials at a global warming summit.


The WH says otherwise:


“There has been no change in the U.S.’s position on the Paris agreement,” said deputy press secretary Lindsay Walters. “As the president has made abundantly clear, the U.S. is withdrawing unless we can re-enter on terms that are more favorable to our country.”


Interesting and as with DACA reform, perhaps even positive. I can only wonder if these two things really happen and there is a deal made with the Dems, what is Trump getting in return?

Paris Accord - yes or no?

How is this different than what Trump stated from the beginning? He said No based on the bad deal the prior administration created. He always said he wanted to re-negotiate a better deal for America.

The Wall Street Journal started that FAKE story yesterday, because they want more subscribers and page hits. Here's the OFFICIAL White House response:


There has been no change in the United States' position on the Paris agreement. As the President has made abundantly clear, the United States is withdrawing unless we can re-enter on terms that are more favorable to our country," the White House said in a statement Saturday.

Is it a lie? That's kinda the point of the OP. Do you trust what is coming out of the white house considering the recent shift in attempting to actually get something done across the table?

It really isn't any different. It was widely reported we were pulling out to the PA, but it was not widely reported we set a time table to re-engage.

I find it interesting how the story is reported. Why such a large difference in tone when the same thing is being said?

Trump has flipflopped on so many issues but his base refuses to criticize any of his # ups.

A true cult of personality....they have developed the powers of rationalization to a high art.

More and more the conspiracy that the Ds and Rs are really in bed together but with a thin boundary is becoming more evident. Oh, that conspiracy, by the way, has at its roots the simple fact that there is a secret power structure that call the shots. It is a mistake to call it a "secret/dark/black" government. They are simply the controllers and don't need to hold office or be elected.

You don't have to read past #1 not to spit coffee.


Before becoming president: "NATO is obsolete." (April 4, 2016)

Since becoming president: NATO is "no longer obsolete." (April 12, 2017)

When he is out of office, sociologists will have their work cut out for them (although it should be both interesting and fun) to figure out what happened to cause this; how a group of people could support a man, and sustain that support though thousands and thousands of lies and absolute idiotic childish behavior, broken promises, clear corruption as well a racist mentality). Additionally installing his incompetent family in the Westwing, blowing millions of dollars on weekend getaways, tainting our relations with foreign countries, while befriending and flattering our enemies, taking from the poor to give to the rich, and let's not forget removing people's healthcare from them and their familie's so he can hand it t over to the people who don't need it, and build a wall we don't need.

And people still support him. They manage to find a way to justify every single contradiction, flip-flop, every single asinine tweet, and every frivolous dollar he spends (on himself).

When a Candidate's own state doesn't support him, that speaks volumes, does it not?

Yes, I envy the sociologists who get to explore the demographics, and the whys and wherefores. It will be interesting! (I will pray they won't get shot when trying to do surveys).

That sort of depends on the outcome. If the US does get more favorable terms and gets to stay in the accord, it is a win.

But I tell you what, right now a lot of leaders are getting very worried - if the US stay in, they just lost their excuse not to live up to the part of the accord, that 'encourages' them to provide $100bn a year through 2025 to poorer countries, and at that point set a new goal “from a floor of $100bn”.

That was always going to be the biggest challenge for the accord. No one wants to come right out and say it, but nobody really wants to pay up, and that is a very big part of why there was no treaty but only a non-binding accord.
