But Trump also said he has "no problem" with the agreement, "but I had a problem with the agreement that they signed, because as usual, they made a bad deal".
"The Paris accord really would have taken away our competitive edge, and we're not going to let that happen", he said.Mr Trump has claimed in the past that the agreement would cost the U.S. $3tn in lost GDP and 6.5 million jobs - while rival economies like China and India were treated more favourably.
Trump has called himself the "least racist person that you've ever met". It's not easy to look at every shore as a potential drilling site and simultaneously try to elbow Al Gore out of position as America's Ozone Man. If war breaks out, the Arctic Circle is covered unless the Russians change their minds.
Nevertheless, speaking to reporters yesterday, Trump suggested he would still be open to the USA being a part of the climate change accord, but emphasised that as it stands the deal remains "very unfair to the United States".
"Norway is combatting climate change - it's an important issue for us and we are committed to the Paris agreement", Solberg said during a joint news conference with Trump.
Trump says Friday: "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used". But we will start to negotiate, and we will see if we can make a deal that's fair. "It took away a lot of our asset values", Trump said, defending his original decision to quit the climate pact. Now, Donald Trump may have proven them right.
"I am for massive oil and gas and everything else, and a lot of energy", he said Wednesday, stating new terms would have to not punish the US for its wealth of fossil fuels.
Unfortunately, that balancing act is very unlikely.
The cost of the aircraft has generated strong head winds of criticism, particularly from Trump, who has previously claimed to have directly helped saved billions on the jet.
For another, a redrawn climate deal that doesn't improve (and might even further damage) the climate won't make sense to the world, even if it helps a segment of the US workforce.
"It put great penalties on us", he said about the agreement. "I wish we would do some of that". Reciprocal trade, which benefits us all. The second is, do we think he's the guy who keeps insisting everybody else is using hacks? "This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation". He said there were "very fine people on both sides" after violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, left one counter-protester dead.
That's risky thinking in a changing 21st Century geopolitical world.
As Trump mentioned on Wednesday, Norway plans to purchase up to 52 F-35s but the Norwegian government has authorized funding for only 40 aircraft to date, according to Lockheed Martin spokeswoman Carolyn Nelson.
Trump questioned why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway, as he rejected a bipartisan immigration deal.
