The G7 declared the US is 'not in a position to join consensus' on climate change


UPDATE 9:39 a.m.: The G7 declared the US isn't ready to decide on the climate agreement.

President Donald Trump made the announcement on Twitter Saturday to his 30.7M followers.

The G-7 nations were supposed to issue a joint statement regarding the global division between the United States and its allies on global impact on the environment.

Trump declined to embrace the climate accord on Saturday during the last leg of his first foreign trip. He took to Twitter to confirm that he would need more time to decide whether the US would pull out of the 195-nation agreement.

White House officials say his views on climate change are "evolving" amid pressure from European leaders.
