He said he had no problem with agreeing to a climate deal but the Paris accord was "a bad deal".

Nevertheless, speaking to reporters yesterday, Trump suggested he would still be open to the USA being a part of the climate change accord, but emphasised that as it stands the deal remains "very unfair to the United States".

When announcing the exit, Trump kept the door open to rejoining the pact "on terms that are fair to the United States, its businesses, its workers, its people, its taxpayers".

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. In fact, USA hydropower generation was almost double that of Norway, which produced 143.4 TWh of hydropower in 2016.

Solberg on her part, said to Norwegian media afterwards that Donald Trump seemed like a normal man with a good sense of humor.
