German Chancellor Angela Merkel was disappointed by Trump’s announcement that he is pulling the U.S. out of the Paris climate accord, which binds nearly 200 countries to take steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
“I regret the decision of the US president,” her spokesman wrote on Twitter:
Kanzlerin #Merkel: Ich bedauere die Entscheidung des US-Präsidenten. Weiter alle Kraft für globale Klimapolitik, die unsere Erde bewahrt.

The German Foreign Minister, Sigmar Gabriel, wrote on Twitter: “Anyone who announces the Paris Climate Treaty blocks the path to growth – and puts hand to the lifebloods of future generations.”
Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel said Trump’s decision was a “brutal attack” on the Paris Climate Agreement.
