Republican President Donald Trump referred to the city of Pittsburgh during his remarks Thursday on withdrawing the United States from the Paris climate accord: "I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris."
And that apparently got under the skin of the Democratic mayor of Pittsburgh.
Because Bill Peduto hopped on Twitter after the announcement and indicated that the Steel City would be standing with the Paris climate accord, despite Trump's declaration:
"As the Mayor of Pittsburgh," Peduto wrote Thursday, "I can assure you that we will follow the guidelines of the Paris Agreement for our people, our economy & future."
The mayor also took a jab at Trump concerning support from Pittsburgh's voters in last year's election:
"Fact: Hillary Clinton received 80% of the vote in Pittsburgh," Peduto tweeted. "Pittsburgh stands with the world & will follow Paris Agreement."
Think he was done? Not a chance.
Peduto said that "it's up to cities to lead" in the wake of Trump's announcement:
While many users backed Peduto's stance against Trump, others were less agreeable:
#powerless You have no power to do anything like that its all macro economic.... wth ever, another leftist grandstanding clown
