United States could "go back in" Paris Agreement

Trump's critique, along with his decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate accord, has frustrated US allies on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean.

President Trump is holding a joint press conference Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg Wednesday, after a meeting between the two at the White House. "But I had a problem with the agreement that they signed".

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

Responding to a question on U.S. desire to improve the relationship with other countries, President Donald Trump has said that working with countries like India, Russia and China is a good, not bad thing.

Norway is part of the accord. We had a great talk, as you know and as you reported.

In response, Solberg noted that Norway is "already number two in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation after the U.S.in terms of per capita defense spending". He also stated that the current agreement "took away a lot of [the country's] asset values".

"As a neighbouring country we do day-to-day work on things that we have to solve for the people and the economic activity that is in that area, which is a fragile area for the whole world", she said.

"There was a tremendous penalty for using it. According to some estimates, we would have had to close businesses in order to qualify by 2025".

"We are very strong on the environment", the president continued.

"The Paris Accord really would have taken away our competitive edge, and we're not going to let that happen".

"We are not going to let that happen. And I believe Norway will get there quite soon", he added.
