Trump says he was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris; but Pittsburgh mayor sides with Paris Agreement!

Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto (D) issued an executive order Friday reaffirming the city’s compliance with the Paris climate change agreement despite President Trump’s decision to remove the United States from the deal.

Trump referenced Pittsburgh in his speech announcing the decision, declaring, “I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris.”

Peduto fired back on Twitter, saying: “Fact: Hillary Clinton received 80% of the vote in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh stands with the world and will follow Paris Agreement.”
