Conservative talk show host, Rush Limbaugh, challenged President Donald Trump to follow through with his pledge to remove the United States from the Paris Accord on so-called anthropogenic global warming. Limbaugh said on his nationally syndicated radio show on Wednesday that if Trump did not do so, he would not be able to “Make America great again,” and he would fail on his most important campaign promise.
“Mr. President, if you don’t take us out of this, there is no way you can make America great again,” Limbaugh said. “America cannot be great in the ways you define it and the ways you have targeted for rebirth and remaking. You can’t do it if we’re signatories to this thing because we become the targets,” he continued. “We become the blame. We become the source of the problem. We must bear the burden, financial, economic, of supposedly addressing this nonexistent issue: Man-made planetary destruction. Don’t forget. It’s not even man-made climate change. What they’re trying to tell everybody is we’re destroying the planet, folks, and they sadly convinced a whole bunch of young people it’s actually in progress and happening. Just take us out! If you want to make America great again, you can’t do it with the United States maintaining its current position in the Paris Accords.” Limbaugh challenged.
You can listen to even more of Rush’s position in the post below. Do you think he is right? Is the benefit gained from pulling out worth the ire of ally nations? Can we reverse what has already become a mindset in so many people, especially young adults? Is Limbaugh’s position right or wrong? Let us hear from you.
