It's a globalist power grab to control nations. Redistribution of wealth from the American tax payer to poorer countries. It puts the US at a economic disadvantage as we are supposed to do the heavy regulatory lifting while heavy polluters like China don't have to even think about cutting back until 2030.
The Paris Climate Accord is a world party for liberal elitist to congratulate each other on "saving the planet". Meanwhile, it will actually have zero effect on the climate.
To liberals, results don't matter. Doesn't matter that it would have cost us billions to stay in it. To them, it's the thought that counts.
Trump kept his promise and is doing a good job at infuriating the left.
