Some of the biggest firms in the US have reacted with dismay to President Donald Trump's decision to pull out of the Paris climate deal.

General Electric, Facebook, Goldman Sachs and Walt Disney were among corporate giants to condemn the move.

Critics say the withdrawal, part of Mr Trump's "America first" policy, will hurt US companies' ability to work abroad and inhibit innovation.

US coal firms welcomed the move, saying it would save jobs and ease regulation.

The Dow Jones share index closed up 0.6% following the widely expected announcement.
