Trump says United States could 'conceivably' return to climate deal

13 January 2018

President TrumpDonald John TrumpHouse Democrat slams Donald Trump Jr. for "serious case of amnesia" after testimony Skier Lindsey Vonn: I don't want to represent Trump at Olympics Poll: 4 in 10 Republicans think senior Trump advisers had improper dealings with Russia MORE said Wednesday that he might reverse his decision to pull the United States out of the Paris agreement on climate change.

Last June, Trump angered global businesses and politicians by announcing the U.S. would be leaving the worldwide climate accord, which was signed by the Obama administration and counts every nation on earth as a signatory until the USA formally quits the deal in 2020.

Maybe most baffling was this statement regarding the Paris Climate Agreement: "It treated the United States very unfairly and frankly it's an agreement I have no problem with but I have a problem with the agreement that they signed because as usual they made a bad deal".

In the end, should we believe Donald Trump actually believes the United States "could conceivably go back" to the Paris Climate Agreement? No. "Working with countries, whether it's Russian Federation or China or India, or any of the countries that surround this world and encompass this world, is a very good thing." he said.

"We are very strong on the environment", the president continued. Mueller and congressional committees investigating the matter have yet to reach a conclusion about whether any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation took place. "Tremendous", he said. "I wish we'd do some of that, but hydro power is fantastic, and it's a great asset that you have".

Moreover, the agreement hurt U.S. businesses overall and gave advantages to other countries such as China, Trump added. Trump insisted that his administration feels very strongly about the environment. "So we could conceivably go back in".

"The EPA and commissioners are very powerful in the sense that they want to have clean water, clean air - but we also want businesses that can compete".

The agreement entered into force in November 2016.

The president emphasised that he is not going to let the Paris agreement to deny the USA competitive edge. "I'm not going to let that happen".
