If Trump is fighting for American workers, you will hear criticism from some globalists but not from me. During a 2016 campaign event in Miami, he said "the Haitian people deserve better" and told the audience of Haitian-Americans he wanted to "be your greatest champion, and I will be your champion".

The president who once moved to end America's involvement with the Paris climate deal, North Korea talks and DACA now seems open to all three.

"The Paris accord really would have taken away our competitive edge, and we're not going to let that happen, I'm not going to let this happen", President Trump said.

Mr Trump began the withdrawal process in June a year ago but it will not officially conclude per the terms of United Nations-brokered agreement until just before the 2020 U.S. election. In the 2017 case, the White House denied that the president ever made those alleged remarks.

But during a joint press conference with Solberg Trump said that the U.S. would be selling Norway F-52 jets. It had sought clarification from the U.S. envoy as to whether Botswana was on the list of African nations Trump would include in his slur, which the White House did not deny he made, "given that there are Botswana nationals residing in the United States".

In a separate development on Wednesday, New York City announced plans to sell off $5bn (£3.7bn) in fossil fuel investments from its $189bn public pension funds over the next five years. It is still October. While the Scandinavian country remains a major exporter of oil and gas, the Norwegian government was among the first to sign on to the landmark Paris climate deal, pledging to meet a 40 percent reduction in carbon emissions by 2030.
