Trump Tells Allies He Plans to Remove US From Paris Climate Agreement

Trump Tells Allies He Plans to Remove US From Paris Climate Agreement

Other leaders of the Group of Seven nations had viewed with trepidation their summit, held at a cliff-top hotel overlooking the Mediterranean, after four preparatory meetings failed to clear up differences with the Trump administration on trade, how to deal with Russian Federation and climate change.

The comments from Mattis, in an interview aired today, come after Trump tweeted yesterday that he would take a decision "next week" on whether to stick to or renege on the climate agreement.

The G7 summit in Italy failed to bridge differences over climate change as America did not join the other countries in committing to the Paris Agreement.

If President Trump decides to pull out of the 2015 Paris accord on climate change, the United States could become one of only three nations in a U.N. climate group not to be signed onto the deal.

In Brussels, he bashed North Atlantic Treaty Organisation partners for not spending more on defense, shoved the prime minister of Montenegro and renewed his attacks on Germany's trade surplus with the United States.

In Brussels, Trump told French leader Emmanuel Macron that he is under "heavy" pressure regarding the climate deal, reports CNN.

"What you're asking me to do is tell you what's inside the president's mind, and I'm not qualified to do that", a seemingly frustrated Cohn told reporters. King Salman and President Trump also signed Joint Strategic Vision Statement, promising close collaboration to counter violent extremism, disrupt the financing of terrorism, and advance defense cooperation.

But Trump is said to be leaning toward a withdrawal from the deal, which was originally adopted under the Obama administration.

However, the punishments may be irrelevant as Button's Monaco Grand Prix appearance is meant to be a one-off race. Pascal Wehrlein crashed out of the Monaco Grand Prix after a collision with Jenson Button in Monte Carlo.

The Paris agreement is the world's first comprehensive climate agreement, which aims to keep the global average rise in temperatures below 20C.

Most reports out of this week's G7 summit saw Trump at odds with the leaders of Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan.

The President's Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, however gave an explanation concerning why Trump wasn't wearing headphones, though many observers disagreed with him, saying Mr. Trump did everything at that moment except listening to the speech.
