President Donald Trump says he'll make a final decision next week on whether the U.S. will stay in the Paris climate agreement.
Trump made the surprise announcement in a tweet after resisting pressure from European leaders to stay in the agreement.
Nearly every nation that signed the 2015 agreement has agreed to curb greenhouse gas emissions.
The president tweeted Saturday, "I will make my final decision on the Paris Accord next week!"
Trump's pending review of U.S. climate policies has left environmentalists bracing for the possibility of bland G-7 promises that say little after years of increasingly stronger commitments to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and cut greenhouse gas emissions.
Trump once proclaimed global warming a Chinese hoax.
