Speaking to the media at the White House, Trump said he read some parts of the report but didn't believe it.

In 2017, Trump pulled the US out of the 2015 Paris climate deal, making it the first country to do so. US's industrial carbon emissions slipped 2.7 per cent last year as use of natural and renewable energy rose but according to Trump's critics, the withdrawal from the global deal meant the US ceded the leadership to others in the fight to curb climate change.
