US President Trump tweets on climate change

This, of course, to say nothing of the fact that global warming impacts the climate, not the weather. Fast forward to present day [VIDEO] and public funds have been slashed for the science community, including massive cuts to the EPA.

Trump tweeted the East could experience the coldest New Year's Eve on record - and then proceeded with his usual divisive commentary calling for some "good old global warming". "Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against", read his entire sentence.

Trump, not known for his fondness for fighting or even belief in the phenomenon of climate change, took to his favourite medium of communication - Twitter - to post his idea on beating winter cold.

US President Donald Trump today mocked the science-backed global warming theory and joked that the alarming rise in the Earth's temperature may bring relief to those reeling under a cold wave on the country's east coast. Within seconds, those who oppose the president made sure to hit back. This year's devastating hurricanes and wildfires, which could cost the USA hundreds of billions of dollars, have also been exacerbated by climate change.

A White House official did not respond when asked what Trump's tweet means for administration policy. Weather is when you wake up in the morning and it's two degrees Fahrenheit out and you really don't want to get out of bed. Record Cold weather is EXTREME.

Asked whether the severity of the two hurricanes led him to rethink his position on climate change, he said, "Well, we've had bigger storms than this". The world was around 0.5 degrees Celsius - almost 33 degrees Fahrenheit - warmer on average compared against the baseline, even though areas in North America are 10 or more degrees below average, according to Vox.

"It's freezing and snowing in NY - we need global warming", Trump tweeted in 2012.
