Whilst deftly avoiding the clearly off topic Russia investigation climate change was however discussed.
Here’s Donald Trump the president of the United States talking about climate change:
“There is a cooling, and there’s a heating. I mean, look, it used to not be climate change, it used to be global warming. That wasn’t working too well because it was getting too cold all over the place…
The ice caps were going to melt, they were going to be gone by now, but now they’re setting records. They’re at a record level.”
Clearly missing the point that in a year of unprecedented natural disasters climate change is scientifically established as creating extreme weather. The USA as championed by Donald Trump remains the only country to have withdrawn from the 2015 Paris climate agreement which had been agreed by Barack Obama.
