Trump Blows Off G7 Meetings On Climate, Amazon

Forbes reports:

U.S. President Donald Trump did not show up for a workshop on environmental issues at the G7 Summit here today, but French President Emmanuel Macron said it came as no surprise.

“When it comes to the Paris Agreement, we know his position, it has always been clear, and it is not an objective of the French presidency to convince him otherwise,” Macron said. “We did have that objective at the outset prior to his withdrawing from the agreement, but it was not our objective at the G7.’

At a press conference following the workshop, Macron said he still expects the charter to be signed by all the leaders, but the signing will take place at the UN Climate Conference in New York next month.
