Norway's PM makes business case of 'green economy' to Trump

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

"Frankly, it's an agreement that I have no problem with, but I had a problem with the agreement that they signed, because as usual they made a bad deal", Trump said at a joint press conference in the White House after meeting Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg on Wednesday.

Norway's prime minister told U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday that her country remains committed to the Paris climate agreement, making the business case of the "green economy" to the real estate developer-turned president.

In fact, more people are moving from the U.S.to Norway than the other way around.

French President Emmanuel Macron in December a year ago said he was hopeful the USA would return to the accord.Commenting on the treaty, Trump said the accord would have taken away the US' "competitive edge".

Trump said the planned USA withdrawal from the Paris climate deal "wasn't a major topic" during their discussions and repeated his claim that the climate agreement negotiated by the Obama administration and signed by countries around the globe "treated the United States very unfairly". "So we could conceivably go back in".

Trump pushes back on Haiti comment
In a series of tweets yesterday, Mr Trump also suggested that momentum towards a deal on maintaining such protection had stalled. The United States embassy in Accra, has said the U.S. has great respect for the people of the African continent.

Trump said he was pulling the US out of the Paris Agreement previous year, shortly after assuming the presidency. At the time, he said the U.S.

President Donald Trump and Norway's prime minister are bonding over economic ties and military might as the two leaders meet for talks expected to focus on security issues and jobs.

"Norway is a great customer, and a great ally and a great friend", Trump says.

The US President reportedly expressed his displeasure with the influx of immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and some African countries during a meeting with high-ranking senators at the White House on Thursday, adding that he wished more people from Scandinavia would leave their homeland to pursue the fabled American Dream. Norway, rich in Arctic oil and gas reserves, was the first developed nation to ratify the global agreement to reduce carbon emissions.
