Donald Trump says US could 'go back' into Paris climate agreement as he feels 'very strongly about the environment'
President Donald Trump has said that the US could "go back" into the Paris climate deal - having withdrawn America from the global accord last year.
"We could conceivably go back in ... I feel very strongly about the environment," said the President during a joint news conference with Norway's Prime Minister Erna Solberg.
Mr Trump began the withdrawal process in June last year but it will not officially conclude per the terms of United Nations-brokered agreement until just before the 2020 US election.
The agreement was signed under former President Barack Obama's administration in December 2015 by nearly 200 countries to curb global carbon emissions and contain global warming to 2 C.
