Trump says United States could 'conceivably' return to Paris climate deal

Trump said he was pulling the US out of the Paris Agreement a year ago, shortly after assuming the presidency. Erna Solberg, Norway Prime Minister had a meeting with The United State President Donald Trump.

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.

He had also said that the U.S. could stay in if the treaty was renegotiated, something which the European Union and other nations quickly ruled out would ever happen.

In June, Trump withdrew the United States from the Paris Agreement on climate change and made a decision to renegotiate the deal that was agreed upon by over 190 countries during the previous Obama administration.

The US could "conceivably" remain party to the Paris climate agreement, President Donald Trump has said. "Our environment protection agency 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", he said.

For instance, the president doesn't even know the country produces hydroelectric power to meet its energy requirement or there is no such thing as an F-52 aircraft, both of the things he confidently mentioned during the presser.


"I'm not going to let that happen", he added. "Tremendous", Trump said. "I wish we'd do some of that, but hydropower is fantastic, and it's a great asset that you have".

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that the US could "conceivably go back in" the Paris climate agreement if a fairer deal was reached, though he gave no concrete sign that any such deal was being discussed at this stage.

"I feel strongly about the environment", he said.

It is important to mention Trump once called global warming a "hoax" created by the Chinese to extort money from the United States.

"So we could conceivably go back in", President Trump said, without elaborating or directly answering a reporter's question as to what could persuade the U.S.to stay in the Paris Accord.

Three months later, some top U.S. Administration officials, including Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, said that the U.S.
