What does Trump believe about climate change?

Ms. Conway said the president wanted to renegotiate a better deal that made more advances to enforce these regulations without burdening the USA worker, and explained that even environmentalists said the deal did not make great advancements to protect the environment.

Conway said when the Paris accord was first negotiated, many climate change activists "went insane", arguing it would not make a statistically significant impact on carbon emissions.

"The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive", Trump wrote in a November 2012 tweet.

Scott Pruitt, Trump's administrator at the Environmental Protection Agency, said Thursday on CNN that the debate over the Paris agreement is "not about whether climate change is occurring or not".

"For some reason or another, this issue of climate change has emerged as a paramount issue for the left - in this country and around the world", Pence said Friday. But Trump has largely avoided answering questions in recent weeks.

During the first presidential debate past year, Trump was called out by his opponent, Hillary Clinton, for claiming global warming "is a hoax, perpetrated by the Chinese".

"I'm not a believer in man-made global warming", he told Hugh Hewitt in 2015.

"We're going to have the cleanest air".

Conway went on to say "environmentalists went crazy" when the Paris accord was first negotiated, as it would have an insignificant impact and it "let China and India off without having to compel their behavior in a dramatic way".

The two officials peppered reporters with reasons the Paris agreement would hurt USA industry but were unable to answer environment-related questions.

President Donald Trump's top aides apparently have no idea whether he believes humans have a role in climate change or if it's even real.

"So I think that - I mean, the fact that the president in his speech today said that he wants to come back and renegotiate a better deal for the United States and for the world I think pretty much speaks for itself", one of the officials said. "I commend President Trump for fulfilling his commitment to the American people and withdrawing from this bad deal", Ryan said. I was not with the president on his trip.

At no point was Zinke able to shed light on Trump's climate change views.

"Can we stay on topic please", a White House official said during a background briefing after Trump's announcement.
