John Legend Calls Trump ‘Our National Embarrassment’ After Withdrawing U.S. From Paris Climate Pact
President Donald Trump’s startling decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate agreement, a deal that helps countries work collectively to combat global warming, on Thursday (June 1) exploded social media timelines.
Initially signed by President Barack Obama in December 2015, the pact includes 200 nations, but is said to hurt the U.S. economy and hinder job growth for factory workers. Withdrawing from the agreement makes America one of only three countries not onboard with the effort. Nicaragua and Syria are the other two not participating.
As you might have guessed, some of your favourite stars, including John Legend, Katy Perry and Bleachers' Jack Antonoff, had a whole lot to say about the issue. However, they did the trick with 140 characters or less. Take a look below to see how Hollywood is reacting!
