It was hardly a surprise, but Donald Trump's decision to withdraw the US from the Paris climate agreement has brought a concerned response from world leaders.

But the president's view is different. "He sees it as a clear job killer," says BBC environment correspondent Matt McGrath, "as an economy strangler and a desperately unfair stitch-up by other countries wanting to take economic advantage of the US."
