Donald Trump continued to distance himself from fellow leaders over climate change at the Group of Seven summit, and said he'll determine next week whether to pull the US out of the Paris climate agreement.

"I will make my final decision on the Paris Accord next week," the President said in a Twitter post on Saturday.
Trump, who for months has delayed a decision on the climate agreement, made his announcement at the conclusion of the G-7 summit in Taormina, Italy.
The US broke from the other six nations in a joint statement issued at the summit's conclusion, saying America is reviewing its climate policies while the other G-7 members remain committed to the Paris agreement.
