>> A wave of disapproval for Donald Trump from across Asia on Friday after his decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Accord. The US president claims the deal would undermine the American economy but that's cold comfort for many other nations that back it.
>> I believe President Trump's decision means completely turning his back on the wisdom mankind has developed so far, so I am deeply disappointed.>> Well, some Asian leaders openly voiced their unhappiness, others were less surprised.>> President Trump's position on this matter has been very, very well known.
His announcement today from our point of view it's disappointing but not at all surprising. It was entirely as expected and as predicted and as promised by him.>> China which leapfrogged the US to become the world's largest greenhouse gas emitter is also voicing concern. State media calling Trump's decision a global set back.
A Friday editorial also rejected the presidents claim that exiting the deal will create many more new jobs in America. Because fossil fuels industries are already highly automated.
