Skip to comments.How Team Trump plans to kill Obama’s Paris climate deal by declaring it a treaty
Posted on 04/27/2017 1:11:59 PM PDT by ColdOne
As President Trumps top advisers prepare to hash out a final policy on the Paris climate agreement dumped onto their laps by President Obama, another option has hit the table: Declare the deal a treaty and send it to the Senate to be killed.
The treaty option could emerge as the middle ground in the increasingly tense battle between remainers on the one hand, who say the president should abide by Mr. Obamas global warming deal, and the Paris agreements detractors, who say Mr. Trump would be breaking a key campaign promise if he doesnt withdraw from the pact.
Mr. Trumps principal advisers are slated to meet Thursday to hash out a final set of recommendations for the president, with several deadlines looming next month.

Need two thirds?
Just reject, revoke, and repudiate it. And move on.

Is this like the SCOTUS was going to take care of ObamaCare and Campaign Finance Reform?
Nope. Need 60 votes. Brilliant solution.
Trump just kill the damn thing, don’t pass the buck to the Senateb they just may pass it.
I love the way this President thinks.
Need two thirds?
I have a better idea Mr. President. Tear it up and call it for what it is...Anti-American bullsquat. Then let us know the names of any "Remainers" in the White House just before you fire their asses!
I don’t trust the Senate one bit. It will only take 12 rinos. I’m willing to bet there at least that many so called Republicans who totally believe the AGW BS.
67 actually. I’d like to know who the so-called ‘Remainers’ are and if any of them work in the White House.
If I where a Senator, just one up close and personal visit from that most prominent and gorgeous of all supporters, I would be all in on the Paris Accord.
This is the Constitutional thing to do. It’s what should have been done in the first place, but its initiator was a muslim kenyan usurper who wanted to tear the Constitution up.
This thing is DOA upon arrival in the Senate.
Enough of the games. If we wanted useless worthless leadership we would have voted for Hillary.
I’m good with calling it a treaty and let the Senate kill it. That is the constitutional process, it re-establishes the real process for international agreements = treaties.
The Iran deal was voted on by the Senate, but not as a treaty, only got 53 votes - never should have happened.
DJT needs to spread/delegate it around a little bit. It would be a small success but a success nonetheless.
Other than requiring us to pay around $3 billion to developing nations like CHINA, Paris requires NOTHING.
I wish Trump would send it to the Senate and tweet how the only thing Paris does is makes us give money to China. And the money could be better spent on the wall. But emphasize that the Paris agreement requires NOTHING except require us to pay developing nations like China.
Fake news has fooled people about an accord that requires NOTHING except redistributing some money.
Allow me to introduce you to your Secretary of Energy, Rick Perry.
Great article here on the global warming issue with lots of good links:
This climate deal is a treaty, so the GOP should debate it and demolish it in the senate.
