USA may 'conceivably' re-join Paris local weather settlement, Trump says

Agence France-Presse

Although legally the United States cannot leave the treaty until 2020, Trump had said in June previous year that the U.S. could stay in if the treaty was renegotiated.

When he announced last June he was pulling the United States out of the accord, Mr Trump said he wanted to negotiate a new "fair" deal that would not disadvantage USA businesses and workers. "It took away a lot of our asset values", President Trump said.

Last September, the United States was present as an observer when environment ministers from about 30 countries discussed key issues relating to the Paris agreement in Montreal, Canada.

But in the press briefing on January 10, asked by a reporter what it would take for the U.S.to reconsider its withdrawal from the Paris agreement, Trump said: "It treated the United States very unfairly and frankly, it's an agreement that I have no problem with but I had a problem with the agreement that they signed because as usual, they made a bad deal". 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.

"We could conceivably go back in", Trump stated on Wednesday.

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

The Agreement required countries create their own climate action plans and restrictions, and the Agreement does not actually contain any formal penalties for nations that fail to meet their own self-imposed targets. "We could conceivably go back in", he said.

According to some estimates, the United States would have had to close businesses in order to qualify by 2025.

During the briefing, Trump appeared to stress that his administration is "very strong" on the environment. "China, by 2030-they don't kick in until 2030", he said as an example. Solberg is now visiting the United States to discuss foreign relations between Norway and the U.S. and it is the third meeting between herself and Trump. But we will start to negotiate, and we will see if we can make a deal that's fair.

"The Paris accord really would have taken away our competitive edge, and we're not going to let that happen, I'm not going to let this happen", President Trump said.
