Trump delays decision on Paris climate accord

The statement's language on trade appeared to be a compromise between the new USA administration's skepticism about some current trade deals and the more pro-free trade views of other G7 members.

The G7 statement recognised the human rights of migrants and refugees.

He again said money is pouring into North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, though he did not offer details on any specific new commitments that have been made by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries.

Trump's pending review of US climate policies has left environmentalists bracing for the possibility of bland G-7 promises that say little after years of increasingly stronger commitments to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and cut greenhouse gas emissions. "I think that all of the leaders present, starting with President Trump, appreciated the informality with which one in this format. can discuss things calmly and freely".

With trouble facing him back home, U.S. President Donald Trump ended his nine-day overseas journey in dramatic fashion on Saturday, addressing U.S. troops at a campaign-style rally.

US President Donald Trump (R) takes part in a bilateral meeting with Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the Villa Diodoro on the sidelines of the G7 on May 26, 2017 in Taormina, Sicily. "Trump is a pragmatic person, I hope he will confirm his commitments, perhaps at his own pace".

Trump seemed to have a much better time in Riyadh than Brussels.

The president supports ongoing efforts to push member countries to spend at least 2 percent of their gross domestic product on defense.

Mrs. Trump adds that she's very proud of how hard the president worked on the trip on behalf of the U.S.

After a first round of meetings Friday, Cohn, who favors retaining the agreement, had said Trump's position was "evolving". "The mood he conveyed is you guys are a bunch of freeloaders".

Macron said he told Trump it is "indispensable for the reputation of the United States and the interest of the Americans themselves that the United States remain committed" to the Paris agreement.

Trump tweeted that he would make a final decision next week on whether to withdraw from the pact. His top economic and national security advisers refused to answer questions about Kushner during a press briefing Saturday.

Details of exactly how this "outside in" approach would work are TBD but if it succeeds it would be a real foreign policy triumph for Trump. The president said recent terrorist attacks in Manchester, England and Egypt underscored the need for the U.S.to "defeat terrorism and protect civilization". Countries could put a tariff on American-made imports. In Riyadh, he received a lavish, gold-plated welcome: His image was projected across the facade of the luxury hotel where he stayed, horses flanked his motorcade as it moved to one of the king's desert palaces and an extravagant celebration was held in his honor, complete with a traditional Saudi sword dance. Trump once proclaimed global warming a Chinese hoax. Instead, he reciprocated with a pledge to not publicly chastise the ruling royal family for its crackdown on political dissent.

Most notably, soon after Trump touched down in Sicily for the final leg of his trip, news surfaced that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is now looking into the role his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner held during the campaign and transition, including his contacts with Russian officials.

Not yet on the agenda: a news conference.

As a candidate, Trump vowed to withdraw the USA from the accord, which was negotiated during the Obama administration. But he never uttered the words "two-state solution", the longtime US policy plan that would create a separate homeland for Palestinians.
