De Blasio: NYC Will Defy Trump, Stick to Climate Agreement

"We'll take matters into our own hands."

President Trump may have pulled the United States out of that quagmire of a deal known as the Paris Climate Agreement, but that's no bother for NYC's commie mayor Bill De Blasio, who declared that his city will "take matters into our own hands" and he would "sign an executive order maintaining New York City’s commitment to the Paris Agreement."

The climate agreement enacted by Obama tied the United States into cutting greenhouse gas emissions by at least 26% by 2025 while simultaneously giving hundreds of billions of dollars to the U.N. Obama did this without congressional approval by refusing to call the deal a treaty. 

Then came along President Trump with the ultimate MAGA moment Thursday by telling the globalists to stick their carbon scale elsewhere. Prior to that on Wednesday, De Blasio held a press conference where he announced a coming executive order to keep NYC from ever becoming great again.  

“If cities and towns and counties and states all over the country step up and agree to abide by the Paris agreement, we can forestall the worst,” de Blasio said. “We can stop what President Trump may be about to do from having a devastating effect on our own people.”

“The Paris Accord was the biggest step forward we’ve taken in many many years,” he continued. “It’s unconscionable for the President of the United States to step away from it.”

De Blasio cited Hurricane Sandy as a reason to fear climate change. 

“I want to remind everyone that here in Red Hook we saw the destructive power of nature in the age of climate change,” he said. “We saw this community disrupted so tremendously by something that was directly affected by climate change there’s no question about it.”

Once Trump's decision materialized on Thursday, De Blasio went apocalyptic on Twitter, saying it would be "horribly destructive for the planet, the country, and this city."

"But we'll take matters into our own hands," he wrote defiantly. "I plan to sign an executive order maintaining New York City’s commitment to the Paris Agreement."

Good luck there, Bill.
