  • Associated Press

French President Emmanuel Macron plans a climate summit next month to push his "Make our Planet Great Again" agenda, and to unveil the winners of his fellowship competition for U.S. climate scientists frustrated by the Trump administration's attitude toward global warming.

French authorities say U.S. President Donald Trump is not among more than 100 world leaders invited to Paris for a climate summit next month.

French President Emmanuel Macron plans a summit to push his "Make our Planet Great Again" agenda on Dec. 12, the anniversary of the 2015 Paris climate accord.

A French diplomatic official said the countries invited are those who are "especially committed" to applying the Paris accord.

An invitation will soon be sent to invite the United States "at a diplomatic level," the official said. He was speaking anonymously in accordance with the French presidency's customary practice ahead of a major event.

Trump has said that the U.S. will pull out of the 2015 Paris accord unless he can secure a better deal.
