As the weather has been turning lately, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump tweeted that the country “could use” some more global warming.
It's really cold outside, they are calling it a major freeze, weeks ahead of normal. Man, we could use a big fat dose of global warming!

Trump has claimed that he’s “not a big believer in climate change,” saying that odd atmospheric patterns are just “weather.”
“It’s called weather changes and you have storms and you have rain and you have beautiful days,” said Trump last month. Does Trump even know what he’s talking about, or does he just know what Republican voters want to hear?
Trump is more than likely just trying to sell himself to conservative voters with his climate denial. There’s no way he can know what he’s talking about.
