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".
Defending his decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, Trump said his primary concern with the Paris climate accord was that it treated the U.S. unfairly and that if a better deal could be reached, Washington might be persuaded to rejoin.
For his part, Trump seemed to take steps back from his statement withdrawing the US from the Paris agreement last summer and hinted that the USA might actually rejoin the agreement. The US president emphasized that he is not going to let the Paris agreement to deny the US competitive edge.

Norway's power sector is nearly carbon neutral, with hydropower covering roughly 95% of domestic power generation, even though it is home to the biggest hydrocarbon reserves in Europe and the fifth-largest exporter of crude oil in the world. Experts say there is nothing in the Paris deal which bans specific types of fuels, nor are there any penalties.Also, the treaty takes a bottom-up approach, with each country making its own commitments towards reducing the release of greenhouse gas.
Notably, Trump lauded Norway's hydropower prowess. "I wish we would do some of that". "And it's a great asset that you have".
