BIARRITZ, France – President Donald Trump skipped a G-7 session focused on climate and biodiversity that was attended by other world leaders Monday.

When U.S. reporters were ushered into the working session on climate, biodiversity and oceans taking place at the G-7 they saw an empty chair where Trump usually sits. The rest of the G-7 leaders were present.

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said the president had other scheduled meetings “so a senior member of the administration attended in his stead.”

Trump has reportedly told aides that the meeting of world leaders has focused too intensely on climate and other environmental issues. White House officials have said the president wants the meeting to deal more with economic issues, and Trump pushed for and secured a session on Saturday focused on the global economy.
