Amid reports that President Trump is about to ditch the Paris climate accord, Elon Musk offered a warning to the POTUS: He'll quit Trump's advisory councils if Trump withdraws from the Paris deal. "Don't know which way Paris will go, but I've done all I can to advise directly to POTUS, through others in WH & via councils, that we remain," the Tesla CEO tweeted Wednesday. And then, in response to a question about what Musk will do if Trump decides not to remain in the accord, Musk replied: "Will have no choice but to depart councils in that case."
Musk is one of 18 business leaders on Trump's business advisory council and has also worked with the president on other initiatives, CNNMoney reports. On Wednesday, Trump told reporters that his decision on the deal will be known "very soon." Meanwhile, economists tell the AP that, despite Trump's assertion that abandoning the deal would boost the US economy, that's likely not true. (Read more climate change stories.)
