President Trump has said Washington could be persuaded to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord if a deal that treat the US more fairly could be reached. Speaking during a news conference, he said it was not the agreement itself he disagreed with but its unfavorable terms. "It's an agreement that I have no problem with but I had a problem with the agreement that they sign because as usual they made a bad deal. So, we could conceivably go back in but I say this, we are very strong in the environment. I feel very strong about the environment. But we also want businesses that can compete and Paris Accord really would've taken away our competitive edge and we are not gonna let that happen. I'm not gonna let that happen."
