Trump says U.S. could stay in Paris climate accord
Jan 12 2018
Trump also shared via Twitter a video clip of a joint news conference he held with Solberg on Wednesday afternoon.
"It's a Democrat hoax that was brought up as an excuse for losing an election", Trump said.
On January 10, United States president Donald Trump announced the delivery of a number of fighter jets to Norway, as part of an effort to boost a defensive relationship in Northern Europe.
President Trump caused quite a stir this week with his announcement that a certain type of fighter jet that is only available on Call of Duty was delivered to Norway by the US.
During a Q&A session he was asked by a reporter what it would take for the United States to remain in the Paris Accord on climate change.
When contacted by the Washington Post, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders did not return comment on the matter or confirm whether Trump is secretly the world's most powerful Call of Duty fan.
Asked about comments by a USA general who visited the Marines stationed in Norway and predicted "there's a war coming", Trump said he does not expect a conflict to break out in the region.
The two leaders had a friendly meeting in the Oval Office earlier in the day.
While Solberg defended the Paris treaty, saying the Nordic country was "committed" to it, she did not publicly correct Trump's wrong statements. Tesla's electric cars, which enjoy many tax incentives in Norway, are a prime example, in Solberg's view.
Lockheed Martin certainly makes very fine, stealthy F-35s.
When announcing the exit in June previous year, Trump said he would reconsider the pact "on terms that are fair to the United States, its businesses, its workers, its people, its taxpayers". "We're going to see what happens", the United States president said.
"Norway is combating climate change".
"It might be that we are too uninteresting, which, of course, is a blow to the Norwegian esteem", she quipped. "I think we're going to have.peace through strength". Solberg said Norway views its restructuring efforts to create a new green economy as a means of providing strong opportunities in the future. Reciprocal trade, which benefits us all.
