As Trump spoke, the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Marcon, stood in awkward silence. The document stated while the leaders of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom and the presidents of the European Council and of the European Commission are reaffirming their commitment to the Paris agreement, the U.S. "is in the process of reviewing its policies on climate change and on the Paris Agreement and thus is not in a position to join the consensus on these topics".

US President Donald Trump arrives for a working session with outreach countries and global organisations at the G7 Summit, in Taormina, Italy May 27, 2017.

President Donald Trump on Saturday concluded a nine-day swing through the Middle East and Europe that marked his first foreign travel as president - a significant milestone for a head of state also considered the leader of the free world. "He came here to learn.

He came here to get smarter", Cohn said. "So his views are evolving, which is exactly what they should be".

Court: Russian hacker can be extradited to US or Russia
He is accused of hacking computers and stealing information from LinkedIn Corp., Dropbox Inc. and other. Russian officials had previously said they were working to prevent his extradition to the U.S.

Cajoled on issues like climate change and NATO's defense pact, he's responded by scolding some of the United States' most loyal allies for not paying their fair share.

The Paris accord, created in 2015 after lengthy negotiations, calls on 196 nations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It calls for reducing pollution in hopes of limiting global warming to 2 degrees Celsius above temperatures at the outset of the Industrial Revolution.

The accord was historic in its scope and ambition, even though its reliance on voluntary pledges made it less robust than some advocates had hoped.

But Mattis, in an interview to air today on a CBS talk show, said Trump was "wide open" on the Paris climate deal.

Recent revelations about Jared Kushner could impact his influence with Trump
The FBI is interested in the details of Kushner's meeting with Kislyak, a meeting that the White House first disclosed in March. The outgoing official offered to stay on to assist the president through the first foreign trip of the administration.

President Donald Trump said Saturday he will hold off on a decision regarding the USA participation in the 195 nation Paris climate change agreement.

The U.S. and French presidents had a warm conversation, the official added, noting Trump appeared to compare himself to Macron by complimenting him on both his business background and for mounting an underdog campaign to become the president. German Chancellor Angela Merkel confirmed that opinions expressed about the withering climate accord "were exchanged very intensively". But he stands in stark isolation, as the leaders from Europe, Canada, and Japan have made it crystal clear they intend to fully implement their national commitments under the Paris Agreement and pursue efforts to decarbonize the global economy.

In talks with European Union leaders, Trump appeared to display a limited grasp of how the world's biggest market operates a common trade policy, railing against Germany's "bad, very bad" surplus with his country. "Therefore, we reiterate our commitment to keep our markets open and to fight protectionism, while standing firm against all unfair trade practices", it said, while pledging to help those left behind by globalisation, reported Agence France-Presse.

Leaders of the Roman Catholic Church broached the topic when Trump visited the Vatican.

Trump honors the fallen in Memorial Day remarks
These are people who grew up here, went to school here and some of them may have friends and family who remember them here today. For one family, the tribute was for a man who not only served his country, but also his extended family with the same devotion.

The internal G7 divisions and a suicide bombing in Britain on Monday, that killed 22, overshadowed the Italian agenda, but on Saturday five African leaders joined the world leaders to discuss their continent's potential. Cohn eventually said, "We're not going to comment on Jared".
