Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO): . (YouTube, 20:57min) “Donald Trump plans to withdraw the United States from the Paris agreement on climate change. That’s bad news for anyone who happens to live on this planet.”

President Trump: “The Green Fund would likely obligate the United States to commit potentially tens of billions of dollars, of which the United States have already handed over $1 billion. Nobody else is even close.”

John Oliver: “It would have been equally as accurate for him to say “Compliance with the Paris agreement would likely require all ducks to wear jean shorts and that it would potentially cost each and every American citizen five fish and a dump truck full of hamsters.”
