Trump may seek solution on climate change, says Macron


French President Emmanuel Macron, who welcomed Donald Trump to Paris two days ago to participate in Bastille Day celebrations, said the US president may seek a solution over the next months for the fight against global warming.
“We’ve spoken in detail on what may allow him to return into the Paris accord,” Macron said in comments published on Sunday in the newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche. “It’s important to maintain a dialogue” with the US about its potential comeback in multilateral actions for climate, he said.
In June, Trump announced that the US would withdraw from the 2015 Paris deal and earlier this month Washington was the only member of the Group of 20 nations that didn’t agree that the accord on cutting harmful emissions was “irreversible.”
Trump softened his position at a press conference on Thursday with Macron, saying, “something could happen with respect to the Paris accord. We’ll see what happens. We’ll talk about that over the coming period of time. If it happens, that’ll be wonderful, and if it doesn’t, that’ll be OK too.” Macron and Trump will speak soon about the fight against IS in Syria and Iraq, the newspaper reported.
