Trump Says US "Could Conceivably" Rejoin Paris Climate Accord

Trump Says US

President TrumpDonald John TrumpHouse Democrat slams Donald Trump Jr. for "serious case of amnesia" after testimony Skier Lindsey Vonn: I don't want to represent Trump at Olympics Poll: 4 in 10 Republicans think senior Trump advisers had improper dealings with Russia MORE said Wednesday that he might reverse his decision to pull the United States out of the Paris agreement on climate change.

With "they", he was referring to the previous administration under Barack Obama, which in 2015 together with most of the world's nations signed the first-ever truly global climate treaty in the French capital.

French President Emmanuel Macron in December said he would not agree to a renegotiation but was hopeful the USA would return to the accord.

Trump said he was pulling the USA out of the Paris Agreement past year, shortly after assuming the presidency. "But I say this, we are very strong on the environment". He also stated that the current agreement "took away a lot of [the country's] asset values".

The U.S. pledged to reduce its carbon emissions between 26 and 28 percent by 2025 under the agreement, and Trump has consistently said it is a "bad deal" for Washington. "We have a total of 52 and they've delivered a number of them already a little ahead of schedule".

NY subway bombing: Akayed Ullah pleads not guilty
He was arrested soon after the pipe bomb failed to fully explode, though he was initially hospitalized after suffering burns. Ullah was the only person seriously injured when the government said he detonated the pipe bomb strapped to his body.

The president emphasised that he is not going to let the Paris agreement deny the US competitive edge.

As before, Trump made several incorrect statements about the Paris treaty.

"Norway is a great customer, and a great ally and a great friend", Trump says. We're not gonna let that happen.

"It treated the United States very unfairly and frankly, it's an agreement that I have no problem with, but I had a problem with the agreement that they signed", he added. Norway's strict regulations to reach its Paris targets of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 40% below 1990 by 2030 has spurred the use of "environmental friendly and climate friendly technologies". "It's an important issue for us", Solberg merely said.
