Trump calls Norway a 'great customer' in welcoming the PM

12 January, 2018, 14:07 | Author: Brenda Erickson

During a news conference with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, Trump said the fighter jets were delivered to Norway.

President Donald Trump has mistakenly said the USA sold Norway fighter jets that exist only in a video game.

Washington, Jan 11 President Donald Trump today said the U.S. could "conceivably" return to the landmark Paris climate agreement but did not indicate any move in that direction.

He had also said that the USA could stay in if the treaty was renegotiated, something which the European Union and other nations quickly ruled out would ever happen.

Several US allies - including Japan, Israel, the United Kingdom, Italy, Norway, Belgium, Denmark and Turkey - have committed to purchasing their own versions of the F-35 and some nations have already received their first orders of the aircraft.

Erna Solberg confirmed Trump by saying that Norway contributes a lot to the USA economy, not least by purchasing Teslas.

Trump's comments come after he held a lengthy bipartisan immigration meeting on Tuesday with lawmakers on the issue. "We need the wall for stopping the drugs from coming in", Trump said when asked if he would sign a bill that didn't include funding for the wall.

Voters Wary of Trump, Confident in Economy
The January 10 national poll found Trump is intelligent, but not fit or level-headed, US voters say; first year was "disaster", "chaotic", "successful".


There is nothing in the Paris deal which bans specific types of fuels, nor are there any penalties.

Trump appears to be reading directly from a script when he talks about the deal for the non-existent fighter, so it's possible that he misread-although he clearly makes no effort to correct himself-or that the script itself was somehow wrong.

"The Paris accord would have taken away our competitive edge". And we're not going to let that happen.

"I hope I'm wrong, but there's a war coming", Neller said, according to Military.com.

When announcing the exit, Trump kept the door open to rejoining the pact "on terms that are fair to the United States, its businesses, its workers, its people, its taxpayers".

"There is collusion, but it's really with the Democrats and the Russians far more than it is with the Republicans and Russians". The first, most importantly, is whether the commander-in-chief of the U.S. Armed Forces has a full understanding of the military capacity at his command.

While some fans speculated that Solberg may have wanted to get capture (North American region exclusive) Tauros during her visit, Norway's PM explained that that wasn't the reason she was playing.
