Thunberg doubled down on her criticism that world and business leaders aren't taking the threat of climate change seriously.

"The habit of giving priority to [gross domestic product] over the well-being of citizens has got to stop", she said. "Now chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend".

"The science and voice of young people is not the center of the conversation, but it needs to be", told a panel session ahead of the official opening of the summit.

Despite the United States' withdrawal from the Paris climate accord, Trump stated that his administration is still "committed to conserving the majesty of God's creation and the natural beauty of our world", adding that "the United States has among the cleanest air and drinking water on earth and we are going to keep it that way".

This year and for the first time on record, environmental risks occupy the group's top five long-term concerns, while corporate executives say they're increasingly concerned about environmental issues.

"To every business looking for a place to succeed - there is no better place than the U.S.".

He told a packed auditorium that trade deals struck this month with China and Mexico represented a model and took his biggest swipe yet at the Federal Reserve, whose policies he says are holding back the US economy.
