Trump Delaying Decision on Paris Climate Deal or WATCH OUT, Gore and The Kushners have Trump's Ear Again

It seems that after Trump spoke with AL Gore on Tuesday morning, news came out that he was delaying his decision on the Paris Agreement. This no doubt made the Kushner's Day. Let's see if this will be another Trump promise that bites the dust:
Former Vice President Al Gore personally asked President Donald Trump not to withdraw the U.S. from a United Nations agreement aimed at limiting global warming, a source revealed.
Gore called Trump Tuesday morning to discuss the Paris agreement that the Obama administration joined in 2016, the source told Axios. “Mr. Gore made the case for why the U.S. should stay in the Agreement and meet our commitments,” a source close to Gore said.
Gore praised the Paris agreement when it was first announced in 2015, calling it “a bold and historic agreement.”
The agreement requires countries to voluntarily submit plans to cut greenhouse gas emissions, and those plans are supposed to be ratcheted up every five years. White House officials are split on whether or not the U.S. should remain in the agreement. Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner favor staying while chief strategist Steve Bannon favors keeping Trump’s pledge to withdraw.
