US diplomat in China quits 'over Trump climate change policy'

The State Department said Deputy Chief of Mission David Rank had resigned.

US media outlets report he stepped down over Mr Trump's controversial announcement last week that the US was withdrawing from the Paris agreement.

The decision, which Mr Trump said would protect the US economy, was met with much rancour worldwide.
