President Donald Trump withdrew from the Paris climate agreement because it did not include any means of enforcing the regulations it laid out, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday according to The Hill. Trump announced in 2017 that he would withdraw the U.S. from the accord.

"Go look at the countries that are still in the Paris agreement and see what their CO2 emissions were. It's one thing to sign a document; it's another thing to actually change your behavior," Pompeo said.

"Go look at Chinese carbon emissions since they entered the Paris agreement. They may feel good about being in the deal. Their people may, you may feel good about their people being in the deal, but it didn't produce — if you're looking for a change, it didn't change a thing," he added. 

"Indeed, this was why President Trump withdrew, because it was a document without any enforcement mechanism that was going to cost the American people a fortune for no benefit," he said.
