Trump Reportedly Pooh-Poohs Climate Science: ‘They Cant Even Get the Weather Report Right’

After President Donald Trump‘s announcement to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate accord, numerous While House officials completely dodged questions about the President’s position on climate change. But a new report out Monday may help shed some light on the matter.

According to Politico, Trump outlined his thoughts on climate science over post-golf lunch with some pals on Sunday at Trump National Golf Club in Virginia. Per the report, the President’s current thinking on the subject goes something like this:

[T]hey can’t even get the weather report right, so how come they think they can get that right?

The new reporting seems to jive with Trump’s previous Tweets on the subject.

On Friday, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was asked if the President believes climate change is occurring. Remarkably, Spicer said that he hadn’t asked him. On Monday, Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders takes the podium. We’ll be watching to see if she can finally provide some answers to the questions, or if she becomes the latest West Wing official to dodge them.
