The president indicated he is willing to reinstate the accords if congressional Democrats will work with his administration.
President Trump said Thursday that he will work with congressional Democrats to reinstate a Paris-type climate deal if Democrats will come to the negotiating table.
“I am willing to immediately work with Democratic leaders to either negotiate our way back into Paris, under the terms that are fair to the United States and its workers,” Trump said.
Trump called the Democrats “obstructionists,” offering to “sit down” and negotiate with them.
“We will get back into the deal, and we’ll make it good, and we won’t be closing up our factories, and we won’t be losing our jobs,” he added.
“I think the people of the world will be thrilled,” Trump said of when he and the Democrats can work out a deal.
It may be worth watching to see if Trump trades the climate issue for one of his other priorities.
