A new ABC News/Washington Post poll found that voters oppose Trump’s decision to pull the US out of the Paris Climate Accord by a 2 to 1 margin, but the bigger problem for the White House is that people don’t believe his reasons for leaving the deal.
Overall, 59% of respondents oppose the decision and just 28% of those polled support Trump.
The Washington Post reported, “The survey also finds broad skepticism toward Trump’s argument that leaving the Paris agreement will benefit the U.S. economy. While 32 percent of respondents say his action will help the nation’s economy, 42 percent think it will hurt and 20 percent say it will make no difference. On a separate question, slightly more people surveyed say that exiting the climate accord will cost jobs, such as those in renewable energy, than it will create jobs in the coal, oil and gas sectors.”
Trump’s constant lies are coming back to haunt him, as a sizable number of Americans aren’t buying what he is selling. This president has lost the ear of the American people. When he talks, many tune him out, and many many more don’t believe him. The White House thought that pulling out of the Paris climate deal would be a win for them, hence the Rose Garden ceremony, but the opposite has happened.
Donald Trump has destroyed the credibility of the presidency. An endless stream of lies big and small have taught the American people that Trump isn’t a reliable source of information. The White House has a ton of problems, but the biggest problem remains Trump’s non-existent relationship with facts and truth.
