Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney lobbied for the United States to remain in the Paris climate agreement in a Wednesday Twitter post.
Romney, who served as the governor of Massachusetts from 2003-2007, said the climate agreement is not only about climate.
President Donald Trump is rumored to be leaning toward pulling the U.S. out of the agreement. He posted his own tweet on the subject earlier Wednesday, saying his official decision will be announced in the coming days.
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who finished second to Trump in last year's Republican race for president, urged the president to pull out of the agreement during an interview Tuesday.
The Paris agreement would "reduce American job growth and wages and increase monthly utility costs for hardworking families, [it] would fundamentally disadvantage the United States in the global economy," Cruz argued.
