ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. President Donald Trump said he was "very, very close" to making a decision on whether to withdraw the United States from a global pact to fight climate change. Trump added he was "hearing from a lot of people both ways." White House officials cautioned that details were still being hammered out and that, although close, the decision on withdrawing from the 195-nation accord - agreed to in Paris in 2015 - was not finalized. Trump, who has previously called global warming a hoax, did not confirm the decision in a post on Twitter, saying only, "I will be announcing my decision on the Paris Accord over the next few days."
