Guardian: “Bill Peduto, the mayor of Pittsburgh, fired back after Trump referenced the city in his speech defending the White House’s decision to withdraw the US from the Paris climate accord.
“I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris,” Trump said, speaking in the White House rose garden on Thursday.
Peduto seized on the comment, countering that Pittsburgh voted for Trump’s opponent, Hillary Clinton, during the 2016 presidential election. “Fact: Hillary Clinton received 80% of the vote in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh stands with the world and will follow Paris agreement. As the mayor of Pittsburgh, I can assure you that we will follow the guidelines of the Paris agreement for our people, our economy and future,” he wrote.”

The Steel City mayor is on Paris’s side, not Pres Trump’s.
