President Trump faces growing backlash at home for withdrawing U.S. commitment to the climate agreement. DkWQ3′

In just under a day — ten governors, 82 mayors, and 86 university presidents expressed outrage at Trump. They also expressed continued support for the climate agreement. All of this despite Trump’s insistence that withdrawing from the agreement is precisely what Americans want.

In addition to which, Trump’s announcement on the Paris Climate Accord has cost him high-profile members of his own advisory council, known as the Strategic and Policy Forum. So far the most notable departures from the council include Elon Musk (Tesla & SpaceX), and Bob Iger (Disney). Both Musk and Iger each cited Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the emissions-limiting agreement as reason for leaving the Strategic and Policy Forum.

From the official Statement by President Trump on the Paris Climate Accord —- “We don’t want other countries and other leaders to laugh at us anymore.”

Is there any evidence of that?
