President Donald Trump said Monday that climate change is the greatest hoax he has ever heard.
“If you don’t believe that climate is changing, then you’re an idiot,” Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity.
“And if you think the climate is not changing, it’s not changing,” Trump said.
“The climate is going to get warmer,” he said.
Trump also claimed that he has no idea what the science is behind global warming, and that he is “absolutely confident” that the Earth is warming.
“I’ve had it for over a year, it wasn’t even a question.
The world was watching.
We were not watching,” Trump claimed.”
They didn’t even know what was happening,” he continued.”
You could tell they were not seeing what they wanted to see,” he claimed.
Trump said that if the world were to see the world as it is today, “it’s not fair to us because it’s all going to be different.”
“The world is going back to the way it was, and we’ll see,” Trump continued.
“And that’s going to happen if you don, you know, if we don’t act.
And we don, we’ll have chaos.
And the world is not going to have the same quality of life that it had before.
So, that’s what’s going on.”
The President also accused the media of failing to cover climate change and said that the mainstream media “doesn’t know what they’re talking about.”
“You know, we’re going to make it very clear, but the press doesn’t know,” Trump declared.
“They don’t know.
They don’t care.
And they’re not going down that road.””
We are going to take care of it,” Trump added.
