Trump to announce decision on Paris climate agreement soon


U.S. President Donald Trump said Wednesday that the world would know his decision on the Paris climate agreement over the next few days.

“I will be announcing my decision on the Paris Accord over the next few days. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.

Citing senior U.S. officials familiar with Trump’s plan, several U.S. mainstream media reported Wednesday morning that Trump is expected to withdraw from the Paris Accord adopted by 196 nations in 2015.

However, CNN quoted U.S. officials speaking on condition of anonymity as saying that Trump’s position on the Paris Accord could still change until he makes his decision public.
