According to White House national economic council director Gary Cohn, President Donald Trump has not come to a decision about how he will handle the controversial Paris climate agreement. However, it is worth noting that Cohn on Friday said Trump’s “views are evolving.”
The president continued with his trip abroad on Friday where he met with global leaders to discuss numerous items including climate change. Reportedly, President Trump will use information he gleans from the meetings to help him decide whether the U.S. will be a part of Paris climate agreement that former President Barack Obama helped construct.
Addressing reporters at a press briefing in Sicily, Cohn said the president was attending the G7 Summit to “learn and get smarter.” According to Cohn, the president expressed to the others at the summit that the environment is very, very important to him. “If he were standing here, he would tell you that he feels much more knowledgeable on the topic today,” Cohn said.
Trump’s national security advisor, H.R. McMaster said, “He’s certain to base his decision on what he thinks is best for the American people.” McMaster added, “While his views are evolving, his basis for the decision remains unchanged.”
