Trump says USA could 'go back in' to Paris climate agreement

"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.

The conservative prime minister had said before the meeting that she'd put climate on the agenda in the bilateral talks.

Yesterday, US Donald Trump hosted Norway's Prime Minister Erna Solberg at the White House for talks about the economy, trade, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and the fight against IS.

While he has "no problem" with the accord itself, he felt the agreement negotiated by the Obama administration treated the USA unfairly, he said.

"We could conceivably go back in", Trump said.

The Obama administration's Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC)-a published declaration submitted under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)-says the US intends to achieve an economy-wide target of slashing greenhouse gas emissions by 26% to 28% below its 2005 level in 2025.

However, it is not clear whether the United States has actually embarked on any attempt to renegotiate the Agreement, according to the BBC. It made it very hard for us to deal in terms of business. "We are a country rich in gas and coal and oil, and lots of other things, and there was a tremendous penalty for using it".

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

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.

"Hydropower is fantastic", Trump said.

Trump also sought to stress that his administration was a champion of environmental protection. "I feel very strongly about the environment".

"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.
