President Donald Trump is unlikely to reconsider his decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate change accord, an analyst said Friday.

French studies expert Dominic Thomas says Trump can learn something from France’s President Emmanuel Macron who, like him, is a political neophyte.

"[The] fact that Trump seemed to make some sort of gesture that he may go back and visit and quite extraordinary. And we do also know its part of the problem and lack of confidence of international leaders have of Trump is that he hasn't always been very consistent," Thomas said.

"I must say this leaves in part some optimism that we will have to see over time whether or not he'll go back and revisit," he added.
