French authorities say President Donald Trump is not among more than 100 world leaders invited to Paris for a climate summit next month.

ABC news reports, French President Emmanuel Macron plans a summit to push his "Make our Planet Great Again" agenda on Dec. 12, the anniversary of the 2015 Paris climate accord.

A French diplomatic official said the countries invited are those who are "especially committed" to applying the Paris accord.

The  official also said, an invitation will soon be sent to invite the United States "at a diplomatic level."

He was speaking anonymously in accordance with the French presidency's customary practice ahead of a major event.

Trump has said that the U.S. will pull out of the 2015 Paris accord unless he can secure a better deal.
