(Worthy News) - Trump administration officials said Sunday that the president’s stance on the Paris climate agreement hasn’t changed: He’s open to re-engaging as long as he gets a better deal.

Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson said the administration would reconsider its decision to withdraw from the accord “under the right conditions,” while National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said President Trump is willing to look at alternatives that fix the “flawed agreement.”

“He’s out of the Paris climate accord. What he said — the door is open,” Mr. McMaster said on “Fox News Sunday.” “If you look at what he said on the day that he announced withdrawing from the accord, he said at some point in the future, if there can be a deal that addresses these fundamental flaws, he’s open to it.”

Mr. Trump announced in June he would pull out of the 2015 agreement, which seeks to limit increases in global temperatures, saying it was “less about climate and more about other countries gaining a financial advantage.” [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]
