USA cities, states and businesses can fulfil commitments made by the United States under the Paris climate change agreement even though the us has withdrawn from the pact, former NY mayor Michael Bloomberg said in Paris.

Mr. Trump announced Thursday that he is pulling the US out of the Paris agreement, which was one of President Obama's major achievements in office.

"We also hear that our actions and leading role are applauded by the worldwide community", Hua told reporters.

A day after he announced that the USA is pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement, officials from the esteemed Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have claimed Trump misunderstood research he cited during his speech to justify his radical decision.

I know many of you share my disappointment with the White House's decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate agreement.

The Global Times, an influential state-run tabloid, said in an editorial published on Thursday before Trump's announcement that China was not interested in discussions about the leadership of fighting climate change and would focus on its own promises to reduce emissions. "On behalf of the people of New York City, and alongside mayors across the country, I am committing to honor the goals of the Paris agreement with an Executive Order in the coming days, so our city can remain a home for generations to come".

May indicated to the American president that "the United Kingdom remained committed to the Paris agreement, as she set out recently at the G7".

She said while the USA leader had made the decision, the private sector can still do its part.

"Americans are not walking away from the Paris Climate Agreement", the billionaire philanthropist and former New York City mayor said on Thursday, according to the Washington Examiner.

The foundation will provide the $15 million commitment the United Nations climate change secretariat will lose from Washington to ensure there is no disruption in their work, he said.

"Trump and his cronies refuse to realize that jobs and investments are heading to China and India, which are set to exceed their Paris climate pledges".

Emmanuel Macron called on signatory countries "to stay within the framework of the Paris agreement and cede nothing".

"Today's announcement by the president leaves the full responsibility of climate action on states and cities", Inslee said. The leaders of France, Germany and Italy joined to "note with regret" the Trump decision and express doubts about any change in the accord.
