Should Trump withdraw from the Paris Accords?
I have a degree (with honors) from the University of London in Public International Law. This includes the study of treaties.
I also have a Juris Doctorate from the US and 40 years of practice primarily in Constitutional Law and 17 years of teaching Constitutional Law at the collegiate level.
I am qualified to evaluate the intersection of treaty law and constitutional law as it pertains to the Paris Accords.
This document is a treaty in international law. It has 100% of the legal attributes of a treaty. If you examine the UN website all the reporting on this accord treats it as a treaty.
Under our Constitution, treaties must be ratified by the United States Senate.
Obama claimed to have unilaterally ratified the treaty. He had no such power.
The United States is not legitimately a party to this treaty. Thus, President Trump is not withdrawing from the Paris Accords. A nation must be a party to withdraw.
President Trump is simply giving the world notice that this act of Obama acting as a dictator was not valid.
The fact that Obama refused to send it to the Senate is all the evidence you need to know that it is an unwise treaty. If it was good for America, it could get ratified.
In all of the hyperbole, the person who acted irresponsibly is the one who circumvented the Constitution and attempted to impose international control over this country all by himself.
Now you know the straight story.
