Kasim Reed is one of the 92 (and growing) mayors and governors who will continue to honor the Paris Climate Accord, even if the United States won’t.
Using the conservative saw that local leaders know what’s better for their people than officials in D.C., this proves Trump’s decision was bad for Americans.
According to my count, 33 states and D.C. have officials that will honor the Paris Accord. Ipso facto, the majority of America knows Trump is wrong.
Mayor Reed published a statement on Thursday calling Trump’s decision “disappointing and isolates our country.”
Reed also signed the letter from the Mayors National Climate Action Agenda that denounced Trump’s decision. College Park is listed on the group’s website as a “Partner City”.
