Trump Wants US To Rejoin Paris Climate Agreement

President Donald Trump on Thursday said the U.S. could "conceivably" return to the landmark Paris climate agreement but did not indicate any move in that direction. He said he had no problem with agreeing to a climate deal, but the Paris accord was "a bad deal".

Trump said the Paris agreement was very unfair to the United States because it imposed penalties and took away many USA asset values. Trump said it was "very much better" having to do with North Korea where the United States now has a problem.

"We are not going to let that happen".

The President - who has been a vocal champion of the USA fossil fuel industries as well as frequently voicing climate change scepticism - said the Paris Agreement signalled a "tremendous penalty" for using gas, coal and oil energy, suggesting the deal was harsher on U.S. interests than Russian and China. "It took away a lot of our asset values".

In June, Trump announced his decision to withdraw the US from the Paris agreement, making the country the only one that has pulled out of the accord.
