Donald Trump declares flooding disaster day after US withdraws from Paris climate change agreementDonald Trump declared a major flooding disaster in Missouri just a day after pulling the US out of the Paris climate agreement. “Historic” flooding that began in April has destroyed or damaged 1,200 homes and caused at least $ 58m (£45m) in damage to public infrastructure in the mid-Western state, according to its State Emergency Management Agency. On 2 June Mr Trump approved state Governor Eric Greitens’ request to declare the catastrophe a major disaster, the day after he had withdrawn the US, one of the world’s biggest polluters, from the climate change accord joined by almost every country on Earth.
