EghtesadOnline: Senator Kamala Harris, the Democratic Party’s vice presidential candidate, has pledged to rejoin the Paris climate agreement and reenter the Iran nuclear deal to restore "our place in the world" and win back the "trust and support" of the US Asian and European allies, if her party wins the November presidential election.
Harris is the running mate of Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden. At a virtual fundraiser on Friday, she was asked how a Biden-Harris administration would restore the “trust and support of our European and Asian allies”, Firstpost reported.
In response, Harris slammed US President Donald Trump and pledged to “rejoin” the Paris agreement on climate change and “strengthen and reenter” the Iran nuclear deal.
“Joe Biden and our administration is going to have a massive job to repair the damage done by Donald Trump and his administration, and to restore our place in the world,” she said.
In 2017, Trump announced his decision to withdraw from the Paris deal, saying the accord would have cost America trillions of dollars, killed jobs and hindered the oil, gas, coal and manufacturing industries.
In 2018, Trump pulled out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
