Social Democratic Party chairman Martin Schulz, speaks at a news conference in Berlin, Thursday, June 1, 2017. Schulz, the former European Parliament president who is hoping to unseat Merkel in Germany's upcoming general election, said he hoped US president Donald Trump would think better of withdrawing from the climate accord. If the U.S. does leave, he said, the Europe Union should seek ways to balance out the economic advantage that U.S. companies might have from the absence of climate regulations.
