G-20 shut Trump out on climate, strike deal on trade

World powers lined up against United States President Donald Trump on climate change, reaffirming their support for international efforts to fight global warming.

The summit's final statement made clear that the other countries and the European Union unanimously supported the Paris climate agreement rejected by Trump.

They called the deal to reduce greenhouse gases "irreversible" and vowed to implement it "swiftly" and without exception.

The other countries, from European powers such as Germany to emerging ones such as China and energy producers such as Saudi Arabia, merely "took note" of the US position, which was boxed off in a separate paragraph that the summit host, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, made clear applied only to the United States.
