President Trump has gotten quite a bit of flack for his decision to remove the United States from the Paris climate agreement, but what the CEO of General Electric just tweeted will really get under Trump’s skin.
From the Vatican to President Obama, many political figures have spoken out against Trump’s ridiculous decision, but after the immature move a few weeks ago when he refused to wear his headphones to hear french translators, it was pretty much understood that Trump was only there so he could be photographed.
Jeff Immelt took to Twitter after learning of Trump’s naive choice:
“Disappointed with today’s decision on the Paris Agreement. Climate change is real. Industry must now lead and not depend on government.”

Trump made the announcement from the White House Rose Garden Thursday afternoon. The president said:
“In order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the United States will withdraw from the Paris climate accord,” Trump said Thursday afternoon in a ceremony in the White House Rose Garden.”
“The bottom line is that the Paris accord is very unfair at the highest level to the United States.”
