French President Emmanuel Macron is Donald Trump's newest and biggest troll

Union home minister Rajnath Singh said on Tuesday the US President Donald Trump's statement about his country exiting the Paris climate agreement came as a shock and that India is hopeful that the United States would rethink its decision of withdrawing from the accord.

The Indian-American lawmaker revealed in an interview on CNN that aired on Saturday night, that despite his decision to withdraw the USA from the historic Paris climate accord, Trump had reservations about the impact of the move.

Responding to Trump's decision to dump the global accord, Haley said, "We've got a president who is gonna watch out for the environment". The administration is working to dismantle former President Barack Obama's Clean Power Plan, which is meant to regulate electricity plants and help the USA meet its promise to cut emissions by more than a quarter from 2005 levels.

She later acknowledged that the USA set its own emissions targets under the Paris agreement, which is voluntary and non-binding, but blamed the Obama administration for setting goals that were not attainable. "I am sure the U.S. will rethink its decision". He said participating in the pact would undermine the USA economy, wipe out jobs, weaken national sovereignty and put his country at a disadvantage. "It was not possible to meet the goals had we attempted to".

The clear commitment by governments in the Paris Agreement to give workers, including those depending on the fossil fuel economy, a key role in developing a Just Transition strategy, will be undermined by the United States announcement, which will also inhibit industrial and economic transformation in the US.

On Friday, nobody at the White House was able to say whether Trump believed in climate change.

Press Secretary Sean Spicer told CNN that he'd never discussed climate change with Trump.

The full interview will air Sunday.

Former President Barack Obama expressed regret over Trump's decision and told the New York Times: "The nations that remain in the Paris agreement will be the nations that reap the benefits in jobs and industries created".

In a speech delivered on 1 June, Trump argued that the current deal puts the U.S. at a disadvantage and called for a fresh round of negotiations to reach a new, "fairer" accord.

Under Trump, the United States has already become an irresponsible role model.

In March 2016, Trump seemed to concede that climate was changing, but he voiced doubts that humans were involved.

Mr Trump announced his decision to pull out of the Paris accord, blaming, among other things, India and China, who he said were benefiting unfairly with billions of dollars. "I can get back to you".

Among the many critics of Trump's decision to withdraw was Al Gore, the former vice president and Nobel Peace Prize victor.

The first Indian American member of the Trump administration's cabinet, Haley was talking to the CNN's Jake Tapper, on Saturday.
