President Trump responded to a few questions by your poolers about the Paris climate accord, during a spray in the Oval Office with Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc.

More to come on the comments regarding Vietnamese visit.

First, the news:

Asked if he would be exiting the Paris accord and if he had made a decision yet, Trump said, "Very soon."

Asked if he was leaning towards getting out, Trump said, "You're going to find out very soon."

Asked whether he has been hearing from CEOs and others trying to persuade him on the climate agreement, Trump said, "I'm hearing from a lot of people, both ways. Both ways."
