Donald Trump says the Paris accord treated US 'unfairly'. Reuters

President Donald Trump said on Wednesday his primary concern with the Paris climate accord was that it treated the United States unfairly and that if a better deal could be reached, Washington might be persuaded to rejoin the agreement.

"It treated the United States very unfairly," Trump said during a news conference with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg.

He said he had no problem with agreeing to a climate deal but the Paris accord was "a bad deal. So we could conceivably go back in."
