The U.S. will take a decision on its continuation in the Paris climate treaty within the next two weeks, President Donald Trump said on Saturday, naming China, Russia, and India for allegedly contributing nothing under the treaty. During the campaign, Mr. Trump had promised to withdraw from the treaty, but senior officials of his administration are divided over the issue. A decision is expected before the G-7 summit on May 26-27.
“Our government rushed to join international agreement where the U.S. bears the costs and bears the burden while other countries get the benefit and pay nothing and this includes deals like the one-sided Paris Climate Accord.

"I'll be making a big decision on the Paris accord over the next two weeks, and we will see what happens," the President said, hours after thousands of people marched in the U.S. capital in support of the climate treaty. The Trump administration has already taken several measures that undermine U.S. commitments under the treaty.
