Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Your World,” Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) said President Donald Trump decision to withdraw from the Paris agreement on climate change “showed courage” by beginning “a transfer of power from Washington D.C. back to the American people.”

Lee said, “What he did today showed real leadership. I think it showed courage. I commend him for doing this. I commend him also for moving in the direction of transferring people back to the American people. It’s one of the things he said in his inaugural address that gave me great comfort and something born out by his actions since then.”

Watch:

“He said this is a transfer of power. Not from one president to another or one party to another, it’s a transfer of power from Washington D.C. back to the American people. I’m excited about that. I appreciate his leadership.”
