The White House denied reports that the US will remain in the Paris Climate Accord



The White House on Saturday denied multiple reports that the United States may not withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord.

"Our position on the Paris agreement has not changed," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted. "@<b>POTUS</b> has been clear, [the] US [is] withdrawing unless we get pro-America terms."

This news comes just after multiple outlets, including The Wall Street Journal and Agence France-Presse, published articles signaling the Trump administration may be softening its position on the deal.

“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," European Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy Miguel Arias Cañete told The Wall Street Journal.

President Donald Trump announced in June that the U.S. would begin the three-year process of withdrawing from the agreement.

"We're getting out," he said. "And we will start to renegotiate and we'll see if there's a better deal. If we can, great. If we can't, that's fine." Following that announcement, multiple European leaders said there was no room to re-negotiate the deal.
