Trump says US-Norway ties 'robust'

Trump says US-Norway ties 'robust'

A source familiar with the meeting said Trump was questioning why the United States should take in unskilled labourers from the countries under discussion and should instead welcome immigrants from nations that can offer skilled workers.

Norway's prime minister told U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday that her country remains committed to the Paris climate agreement, making the business case of the "green economy" to the real estate developer-turned president.

Under Trump, the USA has made successive roll-backs on environmental protections, scrapping the Clean Power Plan, which sought to inch the US away from its use of coal-burning energy, and opening previously protected lands up to mineral exploration.

The U.S. pledged to reduce its carbon emissions between 26 and 28 percent by 2025 under the agreement, and Trump has consistently said it is a "bad deal" for Washington.

The United States "could conceivably go back in" to the Paris climate agreement, President Trump said Wednesday - but it would have to be under terms that don't punish the country for its wealth of fossil fuels. "I wish we would do some of that". Although legally the United States cannot leave the treaty until 2020, Trump had said in June previous year that the USA could stay in if the treaty was renegotiated.

Solberg, by contrast, cited her support of the agreement, which she said would help American businesses.

President Donald Trump and Norway's prime minister are bonding over economic ties and military might as the two leaders meet for talks expected to focus on security issues and jobs.

Trump's meeting with Solberg was the first foreign leader visit with the president in 2018. Seated in the Oval Office, Trump notes that Norway has been a strong consumer of USA -built military equipment, including the F-35 aircraft.

One of the sources who was briefed on the conversation said that Trump said, "Why do we want all these people from Africa here?"
