Trump says fairer deal might coax U.S. back to Paris climate accord

Donald Trump holds a joint news conference with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg in the East Room of the White House in Washington U.S

PRESIDENT Donald Trump has drawn flack for incendiary comments he made regarding immigration to the United States from what he called "shithole countries" like Haiti and those in Africa, however suggested more Asians could be allowed because it helps the USA economically.

Standing alongside Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, Mr. Trump presented himself as a champion of environmentalism. He was referring to the previous Barack Obama administration, which in 2015 together with most of the world's nations signed the global climate treaty in Paris.

Trump, who has previously called climate change a hoax, announced his intent to pull the US out of the deal past year.

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. "So we could conceivably go back in".

"I am for massive oil and gas and everything else, and a lot of energy", he said. Experts say there is nothing in the Paris deal which bans specific types of fuels, nor are there any penalties.Also, the treaty takes a bottom-up approach, with each country making its own commitments towards reducing the release of greenhouse gas.

"Norway is a great customer, and a great ally and a great friend", Trump says.

Another Norwegian tweeter, riismeister, said "why would I trade very affordable healthcare (including mental health), very affordable higher education, 49 weeks parental leave (combined for mom+dad), and minimum 25 vacation days per year for a maniac with a big button who wants to take away even more of my rights?" "Norway has tremendous hydro power".

Under Trump, the USA has made successive roll-backs on environmental protections, scrapping the Clean Power Plan, which sought to inch the US away from its use of coal-burning energy, and opening previously protected lands up to mineral exploration.
