Trump Says US Could Re-Enter Paris Agreement, Praises Norway's Hydropower

T025332Z_396470190_RC1410742710_RTRMADP_3_USA-TRUMP-IMMIGRATION-940x580

Trump said the planned USA 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".

"In November we started delivering the first F-52s and F-35 fighter jets", Trump said during a press conference with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg.

He repeated to reporters what he said when he pulled out of the agreement last June, that it "was a bad deal for the US".

"So we could conceivably go back in", Trump said, without expanding on what would have to happen or change.

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

The formal process for exiting the Paris Agreement takes several years, and the U.S. therefore remains a party to the deal, which sets a goal of limiting average global temperature increases to "well below" 2C since before the end of the century. "I feel very strongly about the environment", he added. "It took away a lot of our asset values", President Trump said. Trump pledged on the campaign trail to withdraw from the accord, which former President Barack Obama and the leaders of 194 other countries signed in 2015.

Sky Sports had the chance to interview the club's chairman while he reviewed progress on Tottenham's new stadium build. He has guaranteed that no players that Tottenham want to keep will be sold in the summer transfer window.

"The Paris accord would have taken away our competitive edge".

This is not the first time Trump has hinted that the US could rejoin the pact.

"It wasn't a major topic, I must tell you, we talked about other things, including mostly trade", said Trump, who boasted that the United States had a trade surplus with Norway. In fact most of your energy or your electricity is produced by hydro. "I'm not going to let that happen", Trump said.

Observers were quick to point out that the Paris Agreement allows countries to set their own climate action plans and contains no formal penalties for nations that fail to meet any self imposed targets.

Solberg is highlighting the two nation's deep roots and says she assured the president that Norway is an ally and a friend "that you can count on".
