Trump says United States could 'go back in' to Paris climate agreement

Erna Solberg, the Prime Minister of Norway, has now been caught playing the hit mobile game ahead of a meeting with President of the United States Donald Trump.

Trump said the planned US withdrawal from the Paris climate deal "wasn't a major topic" during their discussions and repeated his claim that the climate agreement negotiated by the Obama administration and signed by countries around the globe "treated the United States very unfairly".

"So we could conceivably go back in.Mr Trump stressed his administration's commitment to environmental issues, "clean water, clean air", but added "we also want businesses that can compete".

Last June, Trump angered worldwide businesses and politicians by announcing the U.S. would be leaving the global climate accord, which was signed by the Obama administration and counts every nation on earth as a signatory until the United States formally quits the deal in 2020.

Trump's decision in June past year to pull the United States out of the landmark global accord has sparked a wave of anger and dismay at home and also a chorus of disapproval overseas. Trump also said he wished the United States could use hydropower."One of the great assets of Norway is a thing called water", he said. "It took away a lot of our asset values", he said of the pact that includes every other nation in the United Nations.

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.

United States President Donald Trump on Thursday said that the U.S. could "conceivably" return to the landmark Paris climate agreement but did not indicate any move in that direction.

It aims to keep the increase in average global temperature at below two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Almost every other country in the world has signed the agreement.

Apparently, the US has sold Norway 52 F-35s, which Trump seemed to have gotten confused about. It made it very hard for us to deal in terms of business.

On the third meeting, Solberg met Trump discuss foreign policies in the Whitehouse.

Solberg says Norway is "really appreciative of the good work that we have together with the United States". In fact, most of (their) energy or electricity is produced by hydro.
