Trudeau: G20 will tell Trump it's key to take lead role on tackling climate change

BERLIN, July 7 (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told a German newspaper on Friday that the leaders of G20 countries meeting in Hamburg would point out to U.S. 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,” Trudeau told mass-selling Bild newspaper, adding there was no doubt that climate change was happening.
