Kamala Harris to rejoin Paris Climate agreement if voted to power

Vastavam web: Indian-origin Senator Kamala Harris, the Democratic Party’s vice-presidential candidate, has pledged to rejoin the Paris climate agreement and re-enter the Iran nuclear deal to restore “our place in the world” and win back the “trust and support” of the US’ Asian and European allies if her party wins the November presidential election. Harris, 55, is the running mate of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. At a virtual fundraiser on Friday, she was asked how a Biden-Harris administration would restore the trust and support of our European and Asian allies.

In response, Harris slammed President Donald Trump and pledged to rejoin the Paris agreement on Climate Change and strengthen and re-enter the Iran nuclear deal. In 2017, Trump announced his decision to withdraw from the Paris deal, saying the accord would have cost America trillions of dollars, killed jobs, and hindered the oil, gas, coal and manufacturing industries.

In 2018, Trump pulled out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. Part of our strength when, when we as a country, historically, walk into that room around the globe. Part of the strength of our standing it’s not just about our military it’s not just about our economic strength. It’s about the fact that folks believe that when we say something we mean it, the Senator from California said.

We are loyal to our friends that we keep our word, including when we make commitments, be it to NATO or to the Paris agreement that we will follow through. And Donald Trump, he just doesn’t get it. I mean it’s such an extension of his character as a human being I believe that he doesn’t understand the importance of integrity and consistency in one’s word, Harris said.
