President Trump announces U.S. withdrawing from Paris climate change agreement

(Associated Press) President Donald Trump announced that the United States is withdrawing from the Paris climate change accord, but says U.S. will begin negotiations to re-enter agreement.
Trump says US will immediately cease `all implementation' of Paris climate change accord standards.
He made the announcement Thursday afternoon in the Rose Garden.
Trump will argues that the Paris pact is a bad deal for American workers and was poorly negotiated by the Obama administration.
Obama responded saying the Trump administration is joining `small handful of nations that reject the future' with climate pact withdrawal.
Abandoning the pact was one of Trump's principal campaign pledges.
