President Biden apologizes to world leaders at COP26 for Trump pulling out of the Paris climate agreement

At the COP26 global climate meeting on Monday, November 1, President Joe Biden apologized to his fellow world leaders for Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw the US from the Paris Climate Accord. Trump announced the US’s departure from the agreement in 2019, but it didn’t go into force until November 2020.

However, once Trump withdrew the United States from the Paris climate deal, Biden promptly rejoined it after taking office in January.

 Biden at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Scotland on Monday said he “shouldn’t apologize, but I do apologize” for the fact that the Trump administration pulled out of the Paris accord and “put us sort of behind the eight ball a little bit,” The Associated Press reports.

.During his speech at the climate conference, also pledged to have America help other countries financially when it came to financing climate change, arguing nations who caused most of the environmental damage should pay more.
  ‘The United States has an obligation to also step up and finance other countries who have not had the opportunity to do as much damage as we have,’ he said.
 ‘Those of us who are responsible for much of the deforestation and all of the problems we have so far,’ Biden said, have ‘overwhelming obligations’ to the poorer nations that account for few of the emissions yet are paying a price as the planet has grown hotter.
