Pittsburgh mayor Bill Peduto claps back after Donald Trump said he was elected to represent the voters¬†of his city as he announced his decision to pull the U.S. from the Paris Accord. Um, by the way, Hillary Clinton won Pittsburgh by a landslide — 80 percent, to be exact.

Mayor Peduto tweeted: ¬†“As the Mayor of Pittsburgh, I can assure you that we will follow the guidelines of the Paris Agreement for our people, our economy & future.”

He was responding to Donald Trump’s comments as tweeted by press secretary Sean Spicer: “I was elected by voters of Pittsburgh, not Paris. I promised I wld exit or renegotiate any deal which fails to serve US interests.”

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo tweeted support for Pittsburgh: “Once again @RealDonaldTrump is wrong. Paris and Pittsburgh do stand together for the #ParisAgreement….”
