WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The administration of US President Donald Trump is not considering a carbon tax, a White House official said Tuesday.

On February 8, Trump administration officials met with a group of elderly Republican statesmen who called for a $ 40-a-ton tax on carbon emissions to fend off global climate change.

In response to that meeting, the White House official said, “The Trump Administration is not considering a carbon tax.”
