In announcing the nation's withdrawal from the accord Thursday, Trump argued that the climate agreement negotiated under President Barack Obama was unfair to USA workers.
In the UK, BBC Newsreported that Theresa May, the prime minister, told Trump of her "disappointment" with his decision. The country, she said, is prepared to "aggressively participate in the worldwide climate governance".
Climate change, or global warming, refers to the damaging effect of gases, or emissions, released from industry, transportation, agriculture and other areas into the atmosphere.
The President argued that even if the accord was fully implemented it would only have a "tiny, tiny" impact.
He is breaking from many of America's staunchest allies, who have expressed alarm about the decision.
The Russian president said he thought the U.S. did not need not to abandon the Paris Agreement because it was a "framework". The decision has no direct impact on major US regulations on power plants and vehicle rules now aimed at reducing carbon emissions, although those are now under review by Trump as well.
A top European Union official says the EU and China believe that President Donald Trump made a mistake by pulling the United States out of a landmark global climate agreement. The U.S.is the world's top producer of oil, thanks to its rich shale reserves and its extraction technology. He said he wanted to be "in the room where it happens", a famous line from the Broadway musical (which nearly certainly will be made into a movie one day - maybe by Disney).
The consortium also estimates that USA emissions would remain relatively flat if Trump succeeds at rolling back those Obama policies, increasing the country's total greenhouse-gas emissions by 400 million tonnes of carbon dioxide by 2030, compared with previous projections.

"Climate finance is the biggest bad (from Trump's decision)", said Clare Shakya, director of climate change at the International Institute for Environment and Development think-tank in London.
Total pledges add up to $10 billion, including an unmet U.S. promise of $3 billion by U.S. President Barack Obama.
Stephanopoulos cut Conway off as she filibustered his question, interjecting to ask once again whether Trump believes global warming is a hoax. "On the contrary. We in Germany, Europe and the world will combine our forces more resolutely than ever to address and successfully tackle challenges for humanity such as climate change".
But "countries like India would not do anything that is not equitable", he added. Even though the country has signed the agreement it has not yet ratified it and the final decision will be taken not earlier than in January 2019. "The U.S. withdrawal means that we have lost a very strong supporter and partner of the Paris Agreement and the main goal of the agreement - to limit the increase in temperature to under two degrees - will be much more hard to achieve".
The agreement was hailed as a landmark when it was passed, with nearly 200 countries pledging to follow it.
