Senate GOP steels itself for fight over Paris Agreement

By Kyle Feldscher, Washington Examiner.

While President Obama and his team of negotiators celebrate the Paris Agreement, top Republican senators are steeling themselves for a fight over the deal.

Senior White House officials said Saturday the deal doesn't need to go to the Senate to be voted on, but it doesn't appear that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., will allow the deal to get through his Republican-led Senate.

McConnell, in a statement issued Saturday, said Obama took a step too far with the Paris deal.
