Trump, a climate change skeptic, had previously said he was going to skip the summit entirely but made an unexpected appearance for 10 to 15 minutes.
The U.N. Climate Action Summit marks the central event during a week of international protests demanding action against climate change.
Buttigieg has previously pointed the finger at the president and his “enablers” in Congress for not doing enough to fight climate change. The 2020 hopeful released his own climate proposal earlier this month.
