ugg pumps Trump pulls United States out of Paris climate agreement

US President Donald Trump has decided to withdraw the United States from the 2015 Paris climate accord, after months of heated debate among members of his administration. More than 190 nations agreed to the pact in December 2015, pledging to hold average global temperatures to 1.5 2C above pre industrial levels.

“The United States will withdraw from the Paris climate accord but begin negotiations to re enter either the Paris accord or an entirely new transaction on terms that are fair to the United States and its businesses, workers and taxpayers,” Trump said during a press conference in the White House rose garden on 1 June. “This agreement is less about the climate and more about other countries gaining a financial advantage over the United States.”

The president added that “as of today,” the United States would stop implementing its Paris pledges, including contributions to the Green Climate Fund to help developing countries deal with the effects of climate change. But Trump also pledged to “ensure that the United States remains the world leader on environmental issues”.

The mechanics of the US exit are complicated. The terms of the Paris agreement prevent the United States from withdrawing from the pact for four years, which means that the final word on US participation would not come before November 2020 around the time of the next presidential election.

Meanwhile, the United States remains a party to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the foundational agreement under which the Paris accord was negotiated. This means that the country is likely to participate to some degree in international climate talks, just as it did when former President George W. Bush pulled out of another global climate pact the 1997 Kyoto Protocol.

In a statement, the UNFCCC said that the Paris agreement “cannot be renegotiated based on the request of a single Party”.

Changing of the guardTrump’s announcement fulfils one of his campaign promises and plays well to his core Republican supporters. But it goes against the wishes of many US business leaders including some representing fossil fuel interests who had lobbied fiercely to remain in the agreement. Twenty five companies, including technology giants Apple, Facebook and Google, took out an advertisement in major newspapers on 1 June arguing that exiting the Paris accord would harm US economic competitiveness.

The White House has also faced fierce pressure to participate in the Paris agreement from the leaders of other nations, who have vowed to push forward with or without the United States. China, which has overtaken the United States to become the world’s largest greenhouse gas emitter, has said that it will continue to uphold its Paris pledge.

China is expected to announce a new climate partnership with the European Union on 2 June. But it is not clear whether China and the EU can fill the leadership void left by the United States, which under President Barack Obama played a major part in negotiating the Paris agreement.

“I think it’s very hard to fill the American shoes here,” says David Victor, a climate policy expert at the University of California, San Diego. “This is more about the diminishing of American leadership and credibility than about the rise of others yet.”

He notes that even before Trump intervened, the United States was probably not going to meet its Paris commitment, and many other industrialized countries are likely to come up short.

Climate impact of US exitTrump’s move could still give some countries the political cover to scale back their efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, says Niklas Hhne, a founding partner at the NewClimate Institute in Cologne, Germany. But the US decision does not yet spell doom for the climate itself. That’s because big companies and US states have said that they will go on with their own plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and energy markets continue to shift away from coal and toward renewable energies.

“Even with the Trump administration in place, the global trend toward renewable energies is continuing including in the United States,” Hhne says.

An analysis by the Climate Action Tracker, a consortium of researchers, suggests that climate change policies instituted by Obama would have cut US greenhouse gas emissions by 10% below 2005 levels in 2025. That is well short of the country’s Paris pledge to reduce emissions by 26% over the same period.

The consortium also estimates that US emissions would remain relatively flat if Trump succeeds at rolling back those Obama policies, increasing the country’s total greenhouse gas emissions by 400 million tonnes of carbon dioxide by 2030, compared with previous projections. By contrast, the analysis finds, China and India’s efforts to shift from coal to renewable energy are gaining momentum, and could reduce projected emissions by 2 3 gigatonnes of CO2 by 2030.

uggs boots Trump proposes military parade

WASHINGTON (CNN) Defense Secretary James Mattis said Wednesday that the Pentagon is preparing options for a possible military parade to send to President Donald Trump for consideration.In a rare on camera appearance at the White House briefing, Mattis told reporters that the President’s respect for the military was apparent in his request of a military parade.”We’re all aware in this country of the President’s affection and respect for the military,” Mattis said. “We’ve been putting together some options. We’ll send them up to the White House for decision.””The President’s respect, his fondness for the military I think is reflected in him asking for these options,” he added.White House press secretary Sarah Sanders defended Trump’s desire to have a military parade when she was pressed by a reporter on whether that was the best way to show appreciation for the troops.Sanders said the White House has not made a final decision and that they are “exploring different ways that he could highlight and show the pride we have in the military.”She added that “it’s literally in a brainstorming session” and that the President did not give a directive that this is something that must happen.Former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta raised concerns Wednesday about the motivations behind Trump’s parade request.”Any other president, you would assume that it would be to honor our men and women in uniform, and would be done in good taste,” Panetta said. “With this president, it’s just worrisome as to what exactly he has in mind.”And at least one veterans group is already worried.”So far its going over in the military and veterans community like a lead balloon,

ugg trainers with fur Trump promises Americans

uggs boots sale Trump promises Americans

WASHINGTON President Donald Trump on Monday promised a tax overhaul by Christmas, even as a nonpartisan tax analysis group said the Senate package would leave half of taxpayers facing higher levies by 2027.

Speaking before a Cabinet meeting, Trump said, “We’re going to give the American people a huge tax cut for Christmas hopefully that will be a great, big, beautiful Christmas present.”

Trump spoke as the Tax Policy Center said that while all income groups would see tax reductions, on average, under the Senate bill in 2019, 9 per cent of taxpayers would pay higher taxes that year than under current law. By 2027, that proportion would grow to 50 per cent, largely because the legislation’s personal tax cuts expire in 2026, which Republicans did to curb budget deficits the bill would create.

The policy centre, a joint operation of the liberal leaning Urban Institute and Brookings Institution, found that low earners would generally get smaller tax breaks than higher income people.

In 2019, those making less than $25,000 would get an average $50 tax reduction, or 0.3 per cent of their after tax income. Middle income earners would get average cuts of $850, while people making at least $746,000 would get average cuts of $34,000,
ugg trainers with fur Trump promises Americans
or 2.2 per cent of income.

The centre also said the Senate proposal would generate enough economic growth to produce additional revenue of $169 billion over a decade. That’s far short of closing the near $1.5 trillion in red ink that Congress’ nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation has estimated the bill would produce over that period.

The top Democrat on the Senate Finance panel, Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon, said the study showed that “middle class Americans will ultimately see a tax hike under Republicans’ plan while corporate sponsors line their own pockets with multi trillion dollar giveaways.”

Antonia Ferrier, spokeswoman for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R Ky., cited a separate study by the Tax Foundation. That conservative leaning group has said the Senate bill would produce higher wages, nearly 1 million new jobs and enough economic growth to generate nearly $1.3 trillion in federal revenue.

“The Tax Foundation has laid out in unambiguous terms how critical the Senate tax bill is to hard working families and job creators,” Ferrier said.

The House approved a tax measure Thursday slicing corporate and personal taxes by $1.5 trillion over the coming decade. That evening, the Senate Finance Committee approved a similar plan, which like the House version devotes the bulk of its reductions to corporations and other businesses.

The Senate bill would repeal a requirement that Americans have health insurance or pay a fine. The provision is not in the version of the tax overhaul passed last week by the House.

Striking the health care provision might satisfy some GOP moderates who oppose repealing the language, but would also blow a hole in the senators’ tax cut plan, leaving them $338 billion short of their revenue goal over the next 10 years.

Trump did not directly address the issue Monday. He said that the administration would focus on health care, infrastructure and welfare “soon after taxes.”

Trump’s budget director, Mick Mulvaney, said Sunday that the White House is open to scrapping the provision, which would repeal a key component of the health care law enacted by President Barack Obama. Trump had pressed for the provision to be added to the bill, partly to show progress on the GOP goal of undoing the health care law following Congress’ failed attempts to repeal it earlier this year.

“If it becomes an impediment to getting the best tax bill we can, then we’re OK with taking it out,” he added.

Moderate Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, whose vote the White House needs,
ugg trainers with fur Trump promises Americans
said Sunday the tax advantage that some middle income consumers would reap under the tax bill could be wiped out by repealing the mandate under the Affordable Care Act.

Mulvaney and Collins were interviewed on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Collins also appeared on ABC’s “This Week.”.

ugg boots new zealand Trump order would target worker visa program

uggs mens slippers Trump order would target worker visa program

Privacy Policy Terms of Service Ad Choices Public FileWASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump is planning to sign an executive order that seeks to make changes to a visa program that brings in high skilled workers.Trump is heading Tuesday to Kenosha, Wisconsin, where he plans to sign an order dubbed “Buy American, Hire American,” said administration officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity despite the president frequent criticism of the use of anonymous sources.The officials said the order, which Trump will sign at the headquarters of tool manufacturer Snap on Inc., would direct the departments of Homeland Security, Justice, Labor and State to propose new rules to prevent immigration fraud and abuse. Those departments would also be asked to offer changes so that H 1B visas are awarded to the “most skilled or highest paid applicants.”The White House said the program is currently undercutting American workers by bringing in cheaper labor and said some tech companies are using it to hire large numbers of workers and drive down wages.Administration officials said the order also seeks to strengthen requirements that American made products be used in certain federal construction projects, as well as in various federal transportation grant funded projects. The officials said the commerce secretary will review how to close loopholes in enforcing the existing rules and provide recommendations to the president.The order specifically asks the secretary to review waivers of these rules that exist in free trade agreements. The administration said that if the waivers are not benefiting the United States they will be “renegotiated or revoked.”During his campaign, Trump said at some points he supported high skilled visas, then came out against them. At one debate, he called for fully ending the program, saying: “It very bad for our workers and it unfair for our workers. And we should end it.”The officials said the changes could be administrative or legislative and could include higher fees for the visas, changing the wage scale for the program or other initiatives.About 85,000 H 1B visas are distributed annually by lottery. Many go to technology companies, which argue that the United States has a shortage of skilled technology workers.But critics say the program has been hijacked by staffing companies that use the visas to import foreigners often from India who will work for less than Americans. The staffing companies then sell their services to corporate clients who use them to outsource tech work.Employers from Walt Disney World to the University of California in San Francisco have laid off their tech employees and replaced them with H 1B visa holders. workers are sometimes asked to train their replacements to qualify for severance packages. after getting degrees in high tech specialties and they can always find enough American workers with the skills they need.Congress is considering several bills to overhaul the visa program. One, introduced by Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin and Iowa Republican Sen. priority in getting H 1B visas.Trump stop at the world headquarters of Snap on Inc. would come as the president faces an approval rating of just 41 percent in Wisconsin, a state he barely won in November. The visit also would take him to the congressional district of House Speaker Paul Ryan, who won be joining the president because he on a bipartisan congressional trip visiting NATO countries.Trump has traveled to promote his agenda less than his recent predecessors. White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Trump wanted to visit “a company that builds American made tools with American workers.”Trump carried Wisconsin in November by nearly 23,000 votes less than 1 percentage point making him the first Republican to win the state since 1984. He campaigned on the promise of returning manufacturing jobs that have been lost in Upper Midwest states.Founded in Wisconsin in 1920, Snap on makes hand and power tools, diagnostics software, information and management systems, and shop equipment for use in a variety of industries, including agriculture, the military and aviation. Its headquarters are in Kenosha and it has eight manufacturing sites in North America, including one in Milwaukee. The company employs about 11,000 people worldwide.

childrens ugg slippers sale Trump official talk offshore drilling

womens ugg boots cheap Trump official talk offshore drilling

(AP) North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said he had a good conversation Saturday with a top Trump administration official over plans to expand drilling for gas and oil off the state’s coast, but added that residents need to continue to be loud to make sure their opposition is noted. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, telling him that drilling could cause unrecoverable damage to the state’s $3 billion tourism and fishing industries if there is ever an accident.

“We told him there is no 100 percent safe method to drill for oil and gas off the coast, particularly in our area off of North Carolina that sees Nor’easters, that sees hurricanes,” Cooper said. “We don’t call it the ‘Graveyard of the Atlantic’ for nothing, it would be a catastrophic if there were to be an oil spill.”

The Democratic North Carolina governor wants the Republican presidential administration to give him a similar exemption that was offered to GOP Florida Gov. Rick Scott.

Last month, Zinke told Scott that Florida’s waters would remain closed under President Donald Trump’s five year plan,
childrens ugg slippers sale Trump official talk offshore drilling
which would open 90 percent of the nation’s offshore reserves to development by private companies. Interior officials later said Zinke’s promise wasn’t a formal plan and the proposal was still under review.

“As we were leaving the meeting I said, ‘well, we will take the exemption now if you want to give it to us.’ And he did not quite go that far,” Cooper said.

Cooper has joined at least 10 other coastal governors from both parties asking Zinke to remove their states from plans to expand offshore drilling from the Arctic Ocean to the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Republican South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster had a similar meeting Friday with Zinke, his staff reported.

Zinke didn’t meet with reports after either meeting.

It wasn’t all pleasantries between North Carolina officials and Zinke. State attorney general Josh Stein reminded Zinke the state was ready to sue if the Trump administration approves offshore drilling.

Cooper said he wants more time for the public to speak. Currently, the Interior Department plans just one public meeting on the proposal in Raleigh. Cooper wants more meetings along the coast in Wilmington, Morehead City and Kill Devil Hills.

The public also can have a say through comments to the department. “I call on the citizens of North Carolina to be loud about this issue,” Cooper said in his news conference after the meeting with Zinke.

ugg i do Trump meeting with ‘Chuck and Nancy’ is back on ahead of shutdown deadline

(CNN) The on again, off again meeting between President Donald Trump and the top two congressional Democrats is back on, ahead of a Friday deadline to avoid a government shutdown.

In a statement Monday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California, said they would travel to the White House Thursday to meet with Trump and GOP Hill leaders to discuss the spate of year end issues that need to be resolved.

“We’re glad the White House has reached out and asked for a second meeting. We hope the President will go into this meeting with an open mind, rather than deciding that an agreement can’t be reached beforehand,” the two Democrats said in a joint statement, referencing a tweet from Trump that blew up their last scheduled meeting when Trump said he doubted he could reach a deal with “Chuck and Nancy.”

That negative assessment from Trump caused Schumer and Pelosi to abruptly back out of the meeting, which was held without them. Photographers were invited in to take pictures of the empty chairs where they were supposed to sit.

Trump and lawmakers have a long to do list before the end of the year, including wrapping up the GOP led tax reform effort, reaching deals related to keeping the government funded into the new year, and possibly passing two health care bills that are tied to the repeal of the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate, which is part of the Senate passed tax bill.

“We need to reach a budget agreement that equally boosts funds for our military and key priorities here at home including the opioid crisis, pension plans and rural infrastructure,” Schumer and Pelosi said in their statement. “We have to provide funding for community health centers and (the Children’s Health Insurance Program), as well as relief for the millions of Americans still reeling from natural disasters. And we must also come together on a bipartisan deal to pass the DREAM Act along with tough border security measures. There is a bipartisan path forward on all of these items.”

They added, “As negotiations with our Republican counterparts continue, we are hopeful the President will be open to an agreement to address the urgent needs of the American people and keep government open.”

In a TV interview Sunday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell still ecstatic by the Senate’s narrow passage of tax reform early Saturday morning dismissed the notion that the government might shutdown in the next few weeks over disagreements with Democrats.

“It’s just not going to happen,” the Kentucky Republican told ABC News.

McConnell, aides say, is reluctant to permit a shutdown on his watch. A destructive shutdown could raise doubts in the minds of voters about GOP stewardship of Congress and steal positive attention from tax reform, which still has significant hurdles left before Republican leaders hope to send to the President by Christmas.

The GOP led Congress is expected to pass by Friday a two week funding bill to keep the government operating through December 22,
girls ugg Trump meeting with 'Chuck and Nancy' is back on ahead of shutdown deadline
the Friday before Christmas.

Passage of a short term bill will give “the House and Senate time to complete their work on a long term solution,” McConnell said in floor remarks Monday.

If they do, they would likely pass another stopgap bill until early next year, which would give lawmakers time to draft the agreement into legislative text so it can be formally adopted. That bill, aides say, likely would keep the government running through September 30, 2018.

“Nobody should want to see a government shutdown,” Schumer said on the floor Monday, adding that only Trump has suggested, in a tweet, that a government shutdown might be a good way to fix Washington.

Democrats, while in the minority, still have substantial leverage in the talks. That’s because some conservative Republicans in the House may vote against a spending deal, forcing GOP leaders to rely on Democrats to pass it. The same is true in the Senate where 60 votes would be needed for passage. That means Republicans would need the support of at least eight Democrats to get it approved.

But Democrats know they can’t overreach. They could suffer the wrath of voters if they overplay their hand and get blamed for an unnecessary government closure.

Democrats and Republicans remain at loggerheads over two key issues, which if resolved, could lead to a broad year end deal.

The first point of contention is how to raise mandatory budget caps on funding for defense and domestic programs. Republicans are anxious to raise defense spending but Democrats insist that in return domestic programs must get an equal boost.

They are also at odds about what to do about DACA Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals the Obama era program that allows children brought to the US illegally to stay in the country. While there is a bipartisan push to resolve the emotionally charged issued, many Republicans insist any DACA legislation also include robust new border security funding.

“The negotiations are continuing,” said Sen. Dick Durbin, D Illinois, perhaps the Senate’s most vocal advocate for allowing the DACA participants, commonly known as Dreamers, to stay in the US. “We want to make sure we’re setting the stage for getting this done in December before we leave.”

But top Republicans want to push off action on DACA until early next year, because Trump gave Congress until March to act.

“I don’t think the Democrats would be very smart to say they want to shut down the government over a non emergency that we can address anytime between now and March,

” McConnell said in the interview. “That’s a very untenable position.”

ugg boots knee high Trump insults Arizona senator as ‘Flakey’

President Donald Trump says he thinks Sen. Jeff Flake won’t support the Republican tax overhaul in Congress, issuing an insulting tweet against the Arizona Republican two days after Flake criticized the president.

Flake was caught on an open microphone Friday saying the GOP is “toast” if the party follows Trump and Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. It was not a surprising sentiment given Flake’s previous criticism of Trump.

[READ MORE: Sen. Flake says GOP is ‘toast’ if it follows Trump, Moore]

In a Sunday night tweet, Trump fired back: “Sen. Jeff Flake(y), who is unelectable in the Great State of Arizona (quit race, anemic polls) was caught (purposely) on “mike” saying bad things about your favorite President. He’ll be a NO on tax cuts because his political career anyway is ‘toast.'”

[SPECIAL SECTION: Arizona Politics]

Flake announced last month he’s not seeking re election.

Trump also tweeted Sunday that he should have left three UCLA basketball players accused of shoplifting in China in jail. That remark came after the father of player LiAngelo Ball minimized the president’s involvement in winning the players’ release in comments to ESPN.

Trump tweeted: “Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!”

He revisited the matter in another tweet: “Shoplifting is a very big deal in China, as it should be (5 10 years in jail), but not to father LaVar. Should have gotten his son out during my next trip to China instead. China told them why they were released. Very ungrateful!”

WASHINGTON The Senate top Democrat dismissed President Donald Trump immigration proposal as a list for hard liners on Friday as the plan drew harsh reviews from Democrats, immigration activists and some conservatives. illegally in exchange for major restrictions on legal immigration and $25 billion in border security. as children with their families. But he said Trump plan them as a tool to tear apart our legal immigration system and adopt the wish list that anti immigration hardliners have advocated for for years. shot back with his own tweet, accusing Schumer of complicating the process: has been made increasingly difficult by the fact that Cryin Chuck Schumer took such a beating over the shutdown that he is unable to act on immigration! opposition was shared by some on the right, including conservative figure Richard Viguerie, who labeled the White House proposal the Amnesty Disaster in an email. Roy Beck, the president of NumbersUSA, which seeks to limit legal immigration, called it a framework for mass amnesty. White House officials cast the plan as a centrist compromise that could win support from both parties and enough votes to pass the Senate.

The plan would provide a pathway to citizenship for the roughly 690,000 younger immigrants protected from deportation by the Obama era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program as well as hundreds of thousands of others who qualify for the program but never applied.

Trump announced last year that he was doing away with the program, but he gave Congress until March to come up with a legislative fix.

The plan would not allow parents of those immigrants to seek lawful status, the officials said.

In exchange, Trump plan would dramatically overhaul the legal immigration system. The officials said it would only end new applications for visas, allowing those already in the pipeline to be processed. Still, immigration activists said the move could cut legal immigration in half.

It would end a visa lottery aimed at diversity, which drew Trump attention after the New York City truck attack last year, redirecting the allotment to bringing down the existing backlog in visa applications.
