Al Gore suggests Trump presidency could end early for 'ethical' reasons

Al Gore reportedly drew appreciative laughs from a European audience at a premiere of his new documentary when he insinuated that President Donald Trump might be ejected from office.

"We're only six months into the experiment with Trump".

Mr Gore added he initially believed Mr Trump "would come to his senses" although he has "surrounded himself with a rogues gallery of climate deniers". Gore is touring the globe with his latest environmental film, "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power".

The film is a follow-up to his blockbuster 2006 global warming film, An Inconvenient Truth. Gore said he was convinced that USA cities, states and business executives would meet US obligations under the 2015 Paris agreement to fight climate change, despite Trump's decision in June to withdraw from the global pact.

The U.S. State Department last week officially informed the United Nations that it would withdraw from the Paris deal, but left the door open to re-engaging if the terms improved for the United States. He believes that American cities, states and corporate leaders will ignore the president and meet USA obligations anyway.

Mr Gore, asked how big a problem Mr Trump is to his climate change goals, told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "It turns out that he is probably less of a problem than I had feared when he made his announcement that the United States would pull out of the Paris Agreement".

Thursday's United Kingdom premiere will mark the opening night of Film4 Summer Screen at London's Somerset House.

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power is released in United Kingdom cinemas on August 18.
