US President Donald Trump's reported decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement is an abdication of American leadership on the global stage, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said in a statement on Tuesday.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, Axios reported that Trump allegedly decided to exit from the Paris climate agreement.

"President Trump’s decision to pull the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord is a stunning abdication of American leadership and a grave threat to our planet’s future," Pelosi stated.

Trump smiles as he is introduced to speak to U.S. military troops and their families at Naval Air Station Sigonella, Saturday, May 27, 2017, in Sigonella, Italy.

Pelosi noted that walking away from the agreement aimed at curbing climate change would mean that Trump is denying science, taking away safeguards that protect US health and environment, and threatening national and global security.

Trump will also ensure that other countries will receive the investments in clean energy that could bring jobs to the United States, Pelosi added.

Trump said on Wednesday that he will reveal his decision on whether the United States will remain in the Paris Climate Agreement in the next few days. But according to US media reports, he will withdraw the country from the historic accord.
