USA could 'conceivably' return to Paris climate accord: Donald Trump

Trump says US could 'go back in' to Paris climate agreement USA could 'conceivably' return to Paris climate accord: Donald Trump

"I encourage Norway to follow through on its commitment to meet the 2% of GDP defense spending obligation so that together we can confront the full range of threats facing our nations", Trump said on Wednesday, adding that he believes the country will reach the goal "quite soon".

Trump was obviously reading from a prepared statement on Wednesday, while standing next to Norway Prime Minister Erna Solberg at the White House, when he said the USA started delivering F-52s to Norway.

Solberg's USA visit was hailed as a success in Norway where she was praised for raising issues around climate change and global trade. It had sought clarification from the USA envoy as to whether Botswana was on the list of African nations Trump would include in his slur, which the White House did not deny he made, "given that there are Botswana nationals residing in the U.S.".

The process of leaving is long and complex, and Trump's comments will renew questions about whether he actually intends to withdraw or simply wants easier USA emissions targets. "It took away a lot of our asset values", Trump said.

Donald Trump: No journey to London due to embassy alternative
But Johnson accused Khan and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn of damaging US-UK relations with their vocal criticism. Hundreds have taken to social media to say Trump had backed out because he was "not welcome".

When he was asked about the deal, Mr Trump said that the Paris Agreement was unfair to the United States, penalising it heavily for using its resources of coal, oil and gas and he said it hurt American businesses. Trump justified his decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate accord, saying there was a "tremendous" penalty for using the country's rich in gas and coal and oil and that hurt American businesses.

However, he insisted that Paris Agreement, which the worldwide community signed in 2015 with the aim of combating climate change by limiting global temperature rise to well below two degrees Celsius, was "a bad deal" and "very unfair" to the US.

The agreement entered into force in November 2016. Whereas as an example China, by 2030, they don't kick in until 2030. Trump emphasized on the commitment that his administration had with issues regarding the environment and climate change such as air quality and clean water. "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", Trump.
