Secretary Acosta statement on Paris climate accord

WASHINGTON – U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta today released the following statement on President Trump’s announcement on the Paris climate accord:

“President Trump and I are committed to supporting policies that grow jobs and stimulate the economy. The United States’ withdrawal from the Paris climate accord is this administration’s bold commitment to promoting pro-growth principles and rebuilding America’s manufacturing base, which was under siege by the Paris accord. The U.S. Department of Labor remains laser focused on ensuring all Americans have access to good, safe jobs and will continue standing arm-in-arm with the American worker.”
