US cannot exit until it completes a 4-year withdrawal period

Cohn to world leaders: US will exit Paris accord

President Trump’s chief economic adviser, Gary Cohn, emphasized to foreign climate and energy officials on Monday that the U.S. still intends to withdraw from the Paris climate accord.

Speculation was heightened after the European Union’s climate chief, Miguel Arias Canete, said in an interview that the U.S. had signaled it wants to seek new terms from within the agreement, rather than withdraw outright and then renegotiate. French President Emmanuel Macron said before a meeting with Trump on Monday that the two leaders would talk about the accord.
