Discussing the Paris Climate Accord on Fox & Friends

On Sunday morning, I was on Fox & Friends (watch here) to discuss criticism at the G20 summit of President Trump’s decision to leave the Paris Climate Accord. I got very positive feedback (except about the lighting on my end, which I will fix next time). Here is a key part: Host: If you listen to leaders of other countries, they say America’s being left behind, we’re on the sidelines. Would you call it that, or would you say that …
