MOSCOW (Sputnik) — US Secretary of State John Kerry refused on Wednesday to speculate on President-elect Donald Trump’s climate policies but added they could change once he was in office.
"While I can't stand here and speculate about what policies our president-elect will pursue, I will tell you this: in the time that I’ve spent in public life one of the things I've learned is that some issues look a little bit different when you are actually in office compared to when you are on the campaign trail," Kerry told the UN Climate Change Conference (COP22) in Morocco.Paris Agreement, reached at last year’s meeting in France.
Trump, who won a surprising victory over Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in the November 8 presidential election, spoke critically of the Paris pact throughout the pre-election campaign. Four years ago, he tweeted global warming was a plot by China to undercut US manufacturers.
The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 6 ноября 2012 г.
