He said he had no problem with agreeing to a climate deal but the Paris accord was "a bad deal".

Encouraged by generous government tax credits, about one-third of Norwegians drive zero-emission electric cars - many of them American-made Teslas.

Norway is part of the accord. "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".

"I feel very strongly about the environment... but we also want businesses that can compete". 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".

Norwegians have expressed solidarity with and several other African nations by saying they do not want to go to the USA, describing it using the alleged words of Donald Trump as a "s***hole". 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.

When announcing the exit, Trump kept the door open to rejoining the pact "on terms that are fair to the United States, its businesses, its workers, its people, its taxpayers".

The US President has provoked fresh controversy after allegedly asking a group of senators in and the Caribbean rather than from places like.

"It treated the United States very unfairly", Trump said of the deal.

"We are not going to let that happen".
