French President Emmanuel Macron confirmed to reporters that Trump did not attend today’s G-7 Summit’s session on climate, biodiversity, and oceans.
After the session ended, a reporter asked Trump if he would attend the next session and Trump confirmed he would. He also stated, “I want clean air and clean water. And we’re right now having the cleanest air and cleanest water on the planet.”
Trump views Climate Change as a hoax and questions studies that warn us “about the severe effects of a warming planet.”
He also pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement, which other members of the G-7 signed. The Paris Climate Agreement is “a global pact to reduce emissions and fight climate change .”
During the last G-7 summit in Canada, Trump left early and missed the session on climate change and clean energy.
