TOTAL BETRAYAL: Donald Trump Reportedly Caves On Paris Climate Deal

Donald Trump campaigned on a pledge to make coal great again- and that attitude hasn't changed the White House says

According to the EU's top energy official, the US has said it will "not renegotiate the Paris Accord", but will instead review its terms, the Wall Street Journal said.

At a ministerial summit in Montreal, Canada, where the United States participated as an observer, the European Union's top climate official said the administration had backed away from its announcement in June that it was walking out of the historic 2015 agreement.

The Wall Street Journal also reported that President Trump was not planning to pull out of the deal.

In June, President Donald Trump pulled the USA out of the climate accord, saying the agreement imposes energy restrictions that would "punish" the US and reversing a major initiative of his predecessor, President Barack Obama.

In June, a newly elected Trump publicly rejected the deal, which he called "unfair at the highest level to the United States".

But the White House quickly attempted to rebut the report.

"It's clear that we need to be taking a leadership role in climate change", said McKenna.

"The U.S. has stated that they will not renegotiate the Paris accord, but they will try to review the terms on which they could be engaged under this agreement", the report cited Miguel Arias Cenete, the European Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy, as saying.

Abandoning the accord was one of President Donald Trump's principal campaign pledges. The U.S.is expected to significantly reduce its ambition to curb greenhouse-gas emissions, which would be in line with Mr. Trump's goal of clinching "fairer terms", the official said.

At the time, it was seen as another abrogation of the United States' preeminent role as a global leader.
