June 1st Morning Rush: President Trump expected to announce climate change decision

1. We could know by this afternoon whether President Trump plans to pull the U.S. out of the Paris Accord or renegotiate it. Former President Obama entered into that agreement last year. The agreement calls for nearly 200 nations, including the U.S., to reduce carbon emissions. Trump has said that abandoning the accord would be a victory for the American economy. Some economists say pulling out likely wouldn’t add jobs. New Mexico U.S. Senator Tom Udall tweeted that withdrawing would “endanger a healthy future for our children.” Steve Pearce, New Mexico’s only Republican congressman, has yet to comment on the looming decision.

A warrant charging Wilkerson with custodial interference has been issued. Wilkerson was last seen driving a white Nissan sedan with tinted windows and a large dent on the passenger side. If you have any information you’re asked to contact Taos Deputies.

CNN also fired Griffin from her New Year’s Eve hosting gig with Anderson Cooper. Griffin has since apologized on Twitter.
