Trump says US could 'go back in' Paris Agreement


At a news conference with Prime Minister Erna Solberg of Norway, Trump said: "We could conceivably go back in".

"The Paris Agreement as drawn and as we signed was very unfair to the United States".

He said it "was a bad deal for the US", repeating comments made when he announced the U.S. withdrawal last June.But he said he had no problem with the accord itself.A United States pull-out will make the USA in effect the only country not to be part of the accord.

Mr Trump has claimed in the past that the agreement would cost the USA $3tn in lost GDP and 6.5 million jobs - while rival economies like China and India were treated more favourably. "We could conceivably go back in", he said.

As before, Trump made several incorrect statements about the Paris treaty. He also stated that the current agreement "took away a lot of [the country's] asset values". "We are a country rich in gas and coal and oil, and lots of other things, and there was a tremendous penalty for using it".

There is nothing in the Paris deal which bans specific types of fuels, nor are there any penalties. The Washington Post reports President Trump on Wednesday boasted about the sale of F-52 fighter jets to Norway.

Despite being asked, Trump did not specify what changes were needed in the Paris deal to persuade him to keep the United States in. "Our EPA and our EPA commissioners are very, very powerful in the sense that they want to have clean water, clean air, but we also want businesses that can compete and the Paris Accord rally would have taken away our competitive edge, and we're not going to let that happen". And we're not going to let that happen.

President Donald Trump says the economic ties between the United States and Norway are "robust and growing" and he's pointing to their work in the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance to counter security threats.

Trump said that climate was not discussed at length at the meetings, which included a 15-minute talk between Solberg and Trump, and a one-hour meeting with other officials in the room as well. "I feel very strongly about the environment", he added. "It's an important issue for us", Solberg merely said. "In fact, most of your energy-your electricity-is produced by hydro", he told Solberg.
