“This President put America first when he made the decision to withdraw the US from the Paris Climate Accord,” Pence said in his remarks at the National Association of Manufacturers 2017 summit.

He said Trump put America first by withdrawing from “this terrible deal”.

“He left the door open to renegotiating the deal or coming up with a different agreement. But he put America first, and I promise the manufacturers in this room that President Donald Trump always will," Pence said.

He said Trump has put a renewed emphasis on American energy.

“He approved the Keystone and Dakota Pipelines early in this administration, and the Dakota Pipeline is already rolling and Keystone is being built as we speak,” Pence said.
