    The US president has talked up what he calls his environmental leadership in a speech at the White House.

    Donald Trump says the environment is a top priority for his administration, even as it rolls back key protections such as pulling the US out of the 2016 Paris Agreement.

    But climate change could be a key election issue and the number of Americans who say they have been affected by global warming is growing.
