Maine's GOP Sen. Susan Collins said Thursday she was "disappointed" by President Donald Trump's decision to pull the United States out of the Paris climate accord.
"Climate change requires a global approach. I'm disappointed in the President's decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement," she tweeted.
Earlier this month, Collins – one of at least three GOP senators who've supported remaining in the accord – wrote a letter urging the administration to stick with the agreement.
Other Republicans who've also supported the climate deal include Sens. Bob Corker of Tennessee, The Hill reported, and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.
But their disappointment contrasts sharply with that of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who praised Trump's move as "yet another significant blow to the Obama administration's assault on domestic energy production and jobs."
