President Donald Trump's top economic adviser said at the United Nations Monday that the U.S. stands by its plans to abandon the Paris climate pact without a renegotiation favorable to Washington, a step for which the international community has little appetite. Trump in June announced his decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement, saying it would harm U.S. industries, cost U.S. jobs, weaken American national sovereignty and put the country at a permanent disadvantage to other nations.Cohn, who is overseeing the issue for Trump, Monday declined to elaborate on suitable terms that the United States would consider to remain in the accord.It takes four years for a country to withdraw from the Paris Agreement, so the United States will be a party to it until two days after Trump's first term ends, if it follows through on the pullout.
