Mitch McConnell Goes Tom Cotton – Undermines Obama’s U.N. Negotiations


Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) issued a press release warning other countries not to trust President Obama’s promise to significantly reduce U.S. carbon emissions. Much like Tom Cotton’s Open Letter to Iran, signed by 46 GOP senators last month, this is yet another way for Republicans to sabotage international negotiations and to undermine President Obama.
