Trump probably can't be swayed to stay in climate pact-Gore


BONN, Germany (Reuters) - Germany, Japan and other U.S. allies are unlikely ever to persuade President Donald Trump to drop his plan to quit the Paris climate agreement, former U.S. vice president Al Gore predicted on Saturday.

Gore, speaking on the sidelines of a 200-nation meeting on global warming in Germany, dismissed Trump's stated willingness to re-engage in the 2015 pact if he won better terms for U.S. taxpayers and businesses as a "smokescreen".
