Donald Trump’s advisers have postponed the decision on whether the US should leave the Paris climate agreement.

A meeting was scheduled to take place yesterday to reach a final decision but it has been postponed due to scheduling conflicts.

According to reports, White House spokesman Sean Spicer said the US president is continuing to hear from advisers on the pros and cons of the US remaining in the global accord.

There have been divisions within Mr Trump’s administration as to whether the US should ditch the pact or not.

He previously pledged to “cancel” the agreement during the presidential election campaign.

His Energy Secretary Rick Perry recently suggested the US should stay in the deal but renegotiate it.

French President-elect Emmanuel Macron has told Donald Trump he will support the climate change deal following his victory.
