Trump announced on Thusday that the United States will withdraw from the Paris Agreement, making it one of of three countries not to follow it.

Stanton said there is a symbolic aspect to mayors reiterating their commitment to acting on climate change as the White House withdraws from the deal.

On June 1, President Donald Trump announced that the USA will exit the Paris Agreement on climate change.

University presidents from Emory, Brandeis and Wesleyan are on board, the governors of New York, California and Washington have signed up, and companies, such as Hewlett-Packard and Mars, have also joined the group.

So far, Bloomberg has recruited the governors of California, Washington and NY to pledge to help meet the carbon emissions reductions goals set out by the Paris agreement.

The Democratic governors' new pact commits to that same goal, which requires a 26 to 28 percent reduction in emissions from 2005 levels.

In a joint statement, the European Union and China said climate change and clean energy "will become a main pillar" of their bilateral partnership. "Americans don't need Washington to meet our Paris commitments, and Americans are not going to let Washington stand in the way of fulfilling it", Bloomberg said following a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron and Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo on Friday.

"Republicans and Democrats alike recognize that the Paris Agreement is about so much more than climate change", Raimondo said.

Paris bathed its City Hall in green lights and French President Emmanuel Macron made a forceful speech - in English.

Meanwhile, three other nations that the US has designated as "rogue" - Iran, North Korea, and Sudan - are all part of the accord. Executives with Google, Amazon, General Electric, Microsoft, and IBM are also among those in corporate America blasting Trump's decision.

Trump said the deal was "very unfair" to the United States and would impact the job market.

Trump stated that the US might be interested in renegotiating the conditions of the accord, but Mayewski said he believes the chances of that happening are "pretty slim because they've already seen what the current administration has done to existing environmental regulations and legislation".
