Kerry invoked his successor as secretary of state, who also opposed the US pulling out of the accord.
"Climate change is real".
Had the USA failed to meet its voluntary emissions targets, there would have been no penalty imposed.
"While funding from governments remains central to our work, this kind of support is crucial for the work of the Secretariat to assist nations in their efforts to implement their commitments under the Paris Climate Change Agreement", Patricia Espinosa, executive secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, said in response to the billionaire's offer.
Speaking on the CNN programme State of the Union, due to air on Sunday, Haley was seeking to define the president's thinking about climate change in the wake of his announcement that the U.S. will leave the Paris climate accord, joining Syria and Nicaragua as one of three non-signatories. If one of them followed the US withdrawal, it would be unlikely the Paris accord would lead to large-scale reduction of emissions.
The Paris agreement, which was signed in 2015, was endorsed by almost 200 countries with a goal to limit global warming below two degree Celsius above pre-industrial levels, and to pursue efforts to limit that increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
Comey says Trump fired him to undermine FBI Russia investigation

"What's important here is, what the president did on Thursday is put America first", he said.
Yet the non-binding, unenforceable Paris treaty is far from the "draconian" economy-killer that Trump made it out to be, according to many policy experts and legal scholars.
It signals that America's hard-fought progress on climate issues won't be so easily dismantled just because climate deniers and fossil fuel industry allies hold the top seats in the USA government, observers said.
"The US President's statement on Paris agreement has come as a shock for us and the worldwide community". If Trump's goal here is to advantage coal over wind and solar, then this will lead to a net loss of U.S.jobs.
During his speech on Thursday, Trump said the United States would begin negotiations to re-enter the Paris Agreement or make a new deal.
Trump has previously said he believes global warming is a "hoax", and in September 2015 told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, "I'm not a believer in man-made global warming".
President Trump was right to remove the United States from this non-treaty.
Other Trump administration members have outright dodged this issue.
