The United States â€œwill not renegotiate the terms of the Paris Agreement,â€ but instead to review its terms, the European Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy, Miguel Arias CaÃ±ete, told the Wall Street Journal.
White house senior adviser Everett Eissenstat, has presented the new position to the meeting Saturday, the Newspaper said.
But the White House has issued a clear rejection.
â€œThere has been no change in the United States positioning the Paris agreement,â€ said Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Walters.
â€œAs the president has made it abundantly clear, the United States withdraws unless we are able to re-enter at more favorable conditions for our countryâ€.
If the Trump administration stays in the climate agreement, the UNITED states is expected to reduce significantly in its ambition to curb greenhouse gas emissions, in line with the President Trump the goal of winning the â€œfairer termsâ€ in the deal, the Newspaper reported.
The report comes three months after Trump has said that the US would pull out of the pact to renegotiate the terms.
In addition, capped a week when Trump, the first step to Democratic leaders on immigration and fiscal policy slipped some supporters and put in doubt the fate of his core campaign promises.
â€œI knew I didn’t see coming,â€ said Staten Island City Councilman Joe Borelli, who was a Trump surrogate during the campaign. â€œI believe it’s another surprising turn in a surprising week.â€
It comes just days after some of Trump’s strongest supporters are talking about â€œimpeachmentâ€, after an agreement was reached with some of the Republicansâ€™ bitter enemies.
The President of the USA sat down on Wednesday night with some of its most avid critics â€” top Democrats Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi â€” to discuss immigration issues.
He has called upon Senator Schumer and Ms Pelosi to the White House to resolve the contentious issue of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), a policy that has saved nearly 800,000 foreigners illegally entered the us soil, as children cannot be expelled from the country.
This decision led to a reaction against the President.
Conservative commentator Ann Coulter â€” who once wrote a book called In Trump We Trust â€” has been incensed to the point of tweets,â€œ At this point, who doesn’T want Trump put in state of accusation?â€
The French President, Emmanuel Macron, and US Donald Trump will be at the UNITED nations General Assembly this week.
Trump announced on June 1 that the UNITED states would withdraw from the 2015 pact, saying that it imposed on wildly unfair environmental standards on American companies and workers.
He called the agreement signed by 195 nations, â€œdraconianâ€, and has promised to stand with the people of the United States to negotiate a better deal for them.
â€œI was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris,â€ the president said at the time.
It was seen as a more radical affirmation of an â€œAmerica firstâ€ foreign policy doctrine since taking office, and, as a victory for Trump’s chief strategist, Steve’s mother, who was fired in the month of August.
Under the agreement reached during President Barack Obama’s administration, the United States had promised to cut greenhouse gas emissions and to commit up to $US3 billion in aid for poor countries by 2020.
The decision to leave the contract has attracted the support of many Republicans, but the condemnation from the other side of the hallway and around the world.
Several governors and mayors, including New York, Bill de Blasio, has announced plans to meet the standards of the Paris agreement in their respective states, and the city without the help of the federal government.
Trump apparently fluid foreign policy will be the centre of attention this week, as he plunges into the first General Assembly of the United Nations of his presidency.
His lunch at the New York city program provides a much-anticipated speech to the General Assembly on Tuesday, and the traditional US-has hosted a diplomatic reception that evening.
The president will discuss North Korea during the lunch with the leaders of South Korea and Japan, to talk about politics in the Middle East with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel and President Emmanuel Macron of France, to hold sessions with the leaders of Latin America and Africa.
Trump will also be the advocate for funding reform â€” another issue raised during the 2016 campaign.
