A Tuesday meeting of President Donald Trump’s most senior advisers to discuss whether to remain in the Paris climate change agreement has been postponed, an administration official told POLITICO.
Trump’s advisers have been divided over the agreement, which was backed by nearly 200 nations in 2015.
Chief strategist Steve Bannon and EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt have called for the U.S. to withdraw from the agreement, while other Trump advisers such as senior adviser Jared Kushner are said to be supportive of staying.
The advisers hope to make a recommendation to the president, who is expected to issue a final verdict on the pact by late May.
It’s unclear when the meeting will be rescheduled.
