Only two other countries, Nicaragua and Syria, have refused to sign on to the Paris deal.

In a televised address, Macron said Trump "committed an error for the interests of his country, his people and a mistake for the future of our planet".

In his speech announcing the United States withdrawal, Trump claimed that the agreement unfairly benefits countries like India.

Greenpeace said: "By withdrawing from the Paris agreement, Trump has turned the US from a climate leader into a climate deadbeat".

There is no substance to the claim the Paris accords placed an unfair burden on the USA, which was historically the world's largest carbon emitter and remains the second largest. "Ibec will continue to work with the Irish Government and partners in Europe to ensure a cost-effective and equitable transition to a low carbon economy", Mr Minogue said.

"To all the scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, and responsible citizens who were disappointed by the decision by the president of the United States, I want to say they will find in France a second homeland", Macron said.

Adding on to Musk's statements, tech leaders of global giants such as Facebook, Apple, Google and Microsoft made their allegiance with the Paris Agreement.

"That is why the rest of the world remains firmly committed to the Paris Agreement, and our own commitment will never waiver".

Merkel, who has had strained relations with the US president even before this decision, reiterated her anger Friday. American senator Bernie Sanders said the decision was an "international disgrace". It said the withdrawal of the United States was a sad day for the world community.

European heavyweights France, Germany and Italy said in a joint statement on Thursday that they regretted Trump's decision to withdraw from the accord, while affirming their "strongest commitment" to implement its measures.

The organisation, which represents $12trn of AUM, said it urges the Administration to reconsider, stating the move would slow progress to tackle climate change.

But he added that he was prepared to try and figure out a new agreement, or change the conditions of the Paris deal.

Kremlin aide Andrei Belousov said the US move punched a gaping hole in the Paris accord.

She said it would be a "rocky road" toward full implementation of the agreement but called it "irreversible".

This was attributed to the MIT, reported Reuters.

Governors from four states - California, New York, Massachusetts and Washington - plan to uphold the Paris Agreement, the Golden State's governor said in a statement. While Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said he did not think Trump's decision would prompt Russian Federation to rethink its own stance, the Kremlin suggested the withdrawal could be fatal to the pact.

Following Donald Trump's highly controversial decision to pull the USA from the Paris climate agreement, world leaders, CEOs, and other prominent figures have slammed the president. "Our future on this planet is now more at risk than ever before". Knowing the good work that we and countless others around the world are doing, there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic about our planet's future.

"Am departing presidential councils, " Musk wrote on Twitter following Trump's announcement.
