Al Gore to Meet With Ivanka Trump at Trump Tower to Discuss Climate Issues (UPDATED)

Al GoreThe Donald Trump presidential transition team announced Monday that former Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore would be meeting with Ivanka Trump about “climate issues” at Trump Tower.

The Trump team later clarified that Gore would not be meeting with Donald Trump.

Gore is of course best known for his advocacy on climate change, something that Trump has denounced as a hoax invented by the Chinese. Reports last week indicated that Ivanka planned to make climate change her signature issue while her father is in office, in the same way that First Ladies traditionally choose an issue to champion.

UPDATE 1:15 PM ET: Gore revealed that in his visit to Trump Tower, he met with Donald Trump as well.
