He will announce his decision in the White House Rose Garden at 3 p.m. Thursday, he tweeted. The tweet closes with his now-famous slogan of Make America Great Again which has been his rallying cry on his overseas trip, while threatening to level the playing field with the German auto industry.

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 finalised.

Trump is expected to announce later this week that he intends to pull out of the landmark Paris agreement.
