“Exiting the Paris agreement would make it all but impossible for Trump to work with other world leaders on a global stage.”
Yes, but does Trump know this? Does he care? He’s already demonstrated his utter lack of proficiency at foreign policy. And I think he truly believes he has a mandate here at home to get out of the Paris agreement and trash the earth as much as he can.
I honestly don’t believe that Trump understands the concept of political capital. He only understands what will benefit himself financially, and everybody else be damned. Unfortunately for him, this will probably be his undoing.
