"Our EPA and our EPA commissioners are very, very powerful in the sense that they want to have clean water, clean air, but we also want businesses that can compete and the Paris Accord rally would have taken away our competitive edge, and we're not going to let that happen. It took away a lot of our asset values", President Trump said.

"Norway is a great customer, and a great ally and a great friend", Trump said at the press conference, which drew most attention for the US President's hint to potentially "go back" into the Paris climate deal.

"It's an agreement that I have no problem with but I had a problem with the agreement that they (the Obama administration) signed because, as usual, they made a bad deal", he told reporters.

"The Paris Agreement as drawn and as we signed was very unfair to the United States".

U.S. President Donald Trump announces his decision regarding the United States' participation in the Paris climate agreement in the Rose Garden at the White House June 1, 2017 in Washington, DC.

Moreover, the agreement hurt USA businesses overall and gave advantages to other countries such as China, Trump added. "They have tremendous hydro power".

Having had his reaction to Trump's remarks made public by Durbin, Graham felt little need to confirm or deny the reports himself. Trump tweeted a denial, saying he used tough language at the immigration reform meeting, but not 'sh**hole'.

However, it is not clear whether the United States has actually embarked on any attempt to renegotiate the Agreement, according to the BBC.

New York City said the lawsuit against BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Exxon Mobil and Royal Dutch Shell would help fund protection against climate change. "We are very strong on the environment". It put great penalties on us. "I'm not going to let it happen". Solberg is now visiting the United States to discuss foreign relations between Norway and the USA and it is the third meeting between herself and Trump.

Trump said the planned USA withdrawal from the Paris climate deal "wasn't a major topic" during their discussions and repeated his claim that the climate agreement negotiated by the Obama administration and signed by countries around the globe "treated the United States very unfairly".

In June, Trump announced his decision to withdraw the USA from the Paris agreement, making the country the only one that has pulled out of the accord.

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, "hydropower is the largest renewable energy source for electricity generation in the United States".
