Donald Trump took to Twitter to call attention to the Thanksgiving Day “cold blast” expected through much of the United States. The fact that the temperature might go on record as one of the coldest this holiday season led Trump to think fears surrounding global warming are unwarranted.
Brutal and Extended Cold Blast could shatter ALL RECORDS – Whatever happened to Global Warming?

Trump shared a similar observation last year:
In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record. 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. Bundle up!

The person masquerading as President of the United States still do not understand that climate and weather aren’t the same things. According to the Union of Concerned Scientists, “Even though the planet is getting warmer, cold weather still happens in winter or at very high elevations or high latitudes year-round.”
Peter Frumhoff, chief climate scientist at the Union of Concerned Scientists, told CNN: “It’s like saying, ‘If everyone around me is wealthy, then poverty is not a problem.’”
Can someone please explain it to the president? https://t.co/7NuZ9Kai2a
