Donald Trump said Tuesday he has lost the “battle” against “the worst thing” to happen in the United States’ economic growth: global warming.
“The world is a different place.
We have so many problems.
We’re having trouble.
And you know, we’ve been fighting this for so long.
The world’s been in the throes of this thing for a long time, and it’s been going on for a very long time,” Trump said during a CNN town hall in New Hampshire.
“But you know what, we’re not going to win this battle by just trying to take the temperature of the world.
We’ve lost it by winning it by actually doing it.”
“You know, you look at what’s going on.
We can’t have climate change.
We cannot have global warming, we cannot have a rising planet.
And the world is going to end in a year or two,” Trump continued.
“It’s going to be over.
It’s going the wrong way.
And we’re going to have to change it.
And it’s not going away.”
Trump has also called climate change a “hoax” and said it “hurts us” and will hurt the country.
“And the world’s going into chaos,” Trump told the audience.
“Because if we were going to change the way that we operate and live, we need to be changing the way we run our business, and I’m saying that in a very strong way. “
“That’s why I want to get rid of global warming,” Trump added. “
“I’ve got to get out of the way, and we’re gonna change it.” “
That’s why I want to get rid of global warming,” Trump added.
“I’ve got to get out of the way, and we’re gonna change it.”
Trump also said he wants to renegotiate the Paris climate agreement to “make it a lot, much better” and that he’s “looking at every option.”
He also said global warming is “tremendous” and “the most important thing in our lives.”
Trump was also asked about his plan to renegotiat the Paris Climate Accord, and said he’s considering it.
He said, “We’ll see.
But I think we’ll be very, very tough.”
He said that his plan is “to have it a little bit different” than previous ones, but that “the reality is that the United Nations has never changed the rules.”
