Under President Donald Trump's leadership, the United States took another major step toward establishing itself as a rogue state on June 1 when it withdrew from the Paris climate agreement.This was not the reason Trump advanced for withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris accord. Rather, the agreement, he alleged, was bad for the U.S. and implicitly unfair to it.On the contrary, the Paris accord is very good for America, and it is the U.S. that continues to impose an unfair burden on others.In fact, the major flaw in Trump's reasoning is that combating climate change would strengthen the U.S., not weaken it.More generally, moving to a green economy would increase U.S. income today and economic growth in the future.America under Trump has gone from being a world leader to an object of derision. In the aftermath of Trump's withdrawal of the U.S. from the Paris accord, a large sign was hung over Rome's city hall: "The Planet First". Fortunately, large parts of the U.S., including the most economically dynamic regions, have shown that Trump is, if not irrelevant, at least less relevant than he would like to believe.
