Trump says USA could stay in Paris deal

Donald Trump holds a joint news conference with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg in the East Room of the White House in Washington U.S

Last June, Trump angered global businesses and politicians by announcing the USA 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 United States formally quits the deal in 2020.

The president emphasised that he is not going to let the Paris agreement deny the USA competitive edge.

Analysts have said the USA withdrawal from the Paris agreement makes it more hard for the world to reach the goals that it set for itself in the Paris agreement.

Trump expected to extend waiver on Iran sanctions
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov called Trump's remarks "extremely negative", RIA state news agency reported. Vice President Mike Pence meanwhile said Trump's administration would stand with the protesters in 'their hour of need'.

Trump, who has previously called climate change a hoax, announced his intent to pull the US out of the deal a year ago.

Solberg says Norway is "really appreciative of the good work that we have together with the United States".

Prime Minister Erna Solberg noted that many Norwegians drive USA -made Tesla electric cars and said her country saw "tremendous economic and business opportunities" as nations around the world fight climate change.

Liam Neeson says harassment allegations in entertainment industry have become "a witch-hunt"
The actor said the sexual allegations sweeping through Hollywood and the #MeToo movement have created "a bit of a witch hunt". People took to Twitter to voice their opinions, with some condemning Neeson for his comments.

Under Trump, the USA has made successive roll-backs on environmental protections, scrapping the Clean Power Plan, which sought to inch the US away from its use of coal-burning energy, and opening previously protected lands up to mineral exploration. And we're not going to let that happen.

"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", he added. Then he launched into an unclear comparison. Norway's strict regulations to reach its Paris targets of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 40% below 1990 by 2030 has spurred the use of "environmental friendly and climate friendly technologies". The oil and gas sector constitutes about 22% of Norwegian gross domestic product. "One of the great assets of Norway is a thing called water, and they have tremendous hydropower, tremendous". In fact, USA hydropower generation was almost double that of Norway, which produced 143.4 TWh of hydropower in 2016.

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".
