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

US President Donald Trump has said that the United States could "conceivably" return to the Paris climate accord, although he stopped short of signalling any move in that direction.

At a news conference with Prime Minister Erna Solberg of Norway, Trump said: "We could conceivably go back in".

Trump joined with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, highlighting the two nations' deep roots. While the Scandinavian country remains a major exporter of oil and gas, the Norwegian government was among the first to sign on to the landmark Paris climate deal, pledging to meet a 40 percent reduction in carbon emissions by 2030.

Scheduled press conferences are a rare thing in Mr. Trump's White House, although he often takes questions from reporters on his way to board Marine One or during meetings with members of Congress and his administration.

Trump reiterated that the USA could "conceivably" return to the agreement but he added, "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 that happen". "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".

But earlier, while speaking about USA energy dominance over Russian Federation, he also derided his former rival, Hillary Clinton, for her energy policies. "Hillary, my opponent, was for windmills, and she was for other types of energy that don't have the same capacities at this moment certainly".
