WASHINGTON—Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) issued the following statement on President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement:

“I applaud President Trump for his decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate agreement. Simply put, it is a bad deal that placed political goals above the American people. Americans, American energy, American jobs, and the American economy must come first, and President Trump is staying true to his word to always act in the best interest of the American people and the country.”

Blackburn represents Tennessee’s Seventh Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. She serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
