The letter reads in part, “…we are concerned about keeping the doors open for the global flow of American manufactured goods and products at this critical time when our manufacturing sector is starting to grow from our competitive energy advantage.

“Based on our vast experience doing business all over the world, we believe there is strong potential for negative trade implications if the United States exits from the Paris Agreement.”
