White House Offers Mixed Signals on Paris Agreement
Are you in or out? Though President Donald Trump announced that the U.S. would be leaving the Paris climate accord in June, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson indicated yesterday that “under the right conditions” Trump might be convinced otherwise. Meanwhile, the White House denied a report that a senior administration official told a conference of energy ministers that Trump was interested in editing, rather than exiting, the deal. World leaders may seek clarification at the U.N today, where the president made his first public statement at the General Assembly, calling for reform of the global institution.
