Donald trump with daughter Ivanka

The President of the United States Donald trump rejected the idea to bring the country out of the Paris climate agreement, which has been repeatedly voiced during the election campaign. This decision was influenced by his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner. This is with reference to own sources reported by the newspaper The Wall Street Journal. Excerpts from the publication quotes The Hill.

The interlocutor of the edition said that the criticism of the agreement was contained in one of the upcoming presidential decrees. Ivanka trump and Kushner, who served as senior adviser in the White house, insisted that the item was deleted from the document. The official representative of the presidential administration Sean Spicer refused to confirm this information.

The climate agreement signed in 2015, involves, inter alia, the allocation of $ 100 billion to developing countries for climate solutions. It should replace the Kyoto Protocol, adopted in 1997 as a Supplement to the UN framework Convention on climate change. Trump called the agreement a hoax, created under the influence of China, and criticized the environmental policies of his predecessor Barack Obama.

In early February, a daughter and son-in-law of the President of the United States helped to block the draft of the decree which has cancelled the former head of state Barack Obama to protect the LGBT community from discrimination. Media reported that the draft decree was involved Vice-President Mike Pence, known for their conservatism.
