In a sweltering Rose Garden, VP Pence took to the podium at 3:29 and gave brief introductory comments before introducing POTUS, who spoke for nearly 30 minutes and announced the U.S. would exit the Paris climate deal. Remarks were open press. Pence, Priebus, Bannon, McMaster, and other top WH officials were seated in the front row. It does not appear Secretary of State Tillerson was at the event.
EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt spoke briefly following POTUS, and the event concluded about 4:05 p.m.
