President Trump Stands Up to G7 Leaders, Refuses to Ratify Climate Agreement


"I will make my final decision on the Paris Accord next week", Trump tweeted.

The White House has remained largely quiet on controversies swirling at home and will likely seek to emphasize the president's traveling successes in coming days.

Rather than reiterating calls for banning Muslims from the United States or arguing as he did on the campaign that "Islam hates us", Trump sought to make clear that the U.S. is not at war with Islam, which he praised as "one of the world's great faiths".

Not once in his speech did Trump revert to his once-frequent use of the phrase "radical Islamic terrorism" to describe the extremist groups and militants he has vowed to combat. He said that attacks would only steel the resolve of world leaders to fight terrorism.

Trump paid a solemn visit to the Western Wall in East Jerusalem, where he stayed for a moment of silence before placing a note between the wall's stones. But he never uttered the words "two-state solution", the longtime US policy plan that would create a separate homeland for Palestinians.

Trump's "America first" approach to foreign policy was on full display in Brussels, Belgium when the president addressed a gathering of fellow North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members at the organization's headquarters.

The investigation compared explosive residue from the type of bomb dropped by the fighter jet with residue found at the scene. The request for an airstrike was relayed from Iraqis on the ground to a USA targeting cell where it was approved.


British environmentalists accused Donald Trump of treating the worldwide community with "utter contempt" after he refused to sign up to global action on climate change at an worldwide summit.

Trump used his trip to promote "America First" policies, promoting $110 billion worth of arms sales to Saudi Arabia and telling G-7 allies that the United States needs a more level playing field on trade. The member countries are: Canada, France, Italy, Japan, Germany, the United States and the UK. At NATO, the White House touted the alliance's commitment to boosting defense spending, though the resolution was essentially a continuation of a pact agreed to two years earlier.

Meanwhile, Democrats are urging Trump not to withdraw from the agreement.

But as a presidential candidate, Trump campaigned on bolstering American fossil fuels, particularly the coal industry. Among other things, the group committed to take the lead on the implementation of the Paris Climate Accord.

"I think he is learning to understand the European position", Cohn said when asked which way the president was leaning on the Paris agreement.

"He feels much more knowledgeable on the topic today", Cohn said as the first day of G7 meetings wrapped.

Anyway, I always felt that Bogut going down did more damage to the Warriors' chances. "We have to be ready for the challenge". I know that both sides are relatively exhausted at this point of the season, but that just makes it an even playing field.


Trump held no news conferences during his nine-day overseas trip, allowing him to avoid questions about investigations into his campaign's ties with Russian officials. His top economic and national security advisers refused to answer questions about Kushner during a press briefing Saturday.

The Trump administration has argued that trade must be balanced and fair as well as free.

"His agenda has been overflowing".

In the week leading up to Trump's first foreign trip, the White House was overwhelmed with a series of bombshell reports that raised more questions about Trump and his campaign associates' ties to Russian Federation. After the election, Trump called Macron to congratulate him on his victory.

He has rolled back a number of Obama-era climate change measures, which will hamper USA efforts to fulfill its Paris pledges.
