BERLIN (REUTERS) - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told a German newspaper on Friday (July 7) that the leaders of G20 countries meeting in Hamburg would point out to United States President Donald Trump that he should be a role model in addressing climate change.

"We'll tell him it's important to take a lead role in tackling climate change and creating good jobs," Mr Trudeau told mass-selling Bild newspaper, adding that there is no doubt that climate change is happening.

Mr Trump decided last month to pull the US out of the Paris accord on climate change.
