Reuters reported on Wednesday, citing "a source briefed about the decision."

The agency said that Trump previously called global warming a hoax, and refused "to endorse the landmark climate change accord at a summit of the G7 group of wealthy nations on Saturday, saying he needed more time to decide."

The Paris accord was agreed o by "nearly 200 countries" in 2015, and aims "to limit planetary warming in part by slashing carbon dioxide and other emissions from the burning of fossil fuels."
