Trump Tries To Explain Why Climate Change Is A Hoax, Ends Up Contradicting Himself

Donald Trump is a living contradiction, he could say one thing and mean another, or he could promise one thing and do the complete opposite. On Thursday CNN reported that Trump changed his mind about the magnitude of Hurrican Harvey and Hurricane Irma after being asked about climate change.

Trump, while speaking to a pool of reporters aboard Air Force One, was asked if his views on climate change have changed following Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.

Trump, who had recently called Irma the biggest “we have ever seen,” changed his mind when confronted with a question about climate change saying, “we’ve had bigger storms than this.”

“If you go back into the 1930s and the 1940s, and you take a look, we’ve had storms over the years that have been bigger than this,” Trump said. “If you go back into the teens, you’ll see storms that were as big or bigger. So we did have two horrific storms, epic storms, but if you go back into the ’30s and ’40s, and you go back into the teens, you’ll see storms that were very similar and even bigger, OK?”

According to expert scientists, global warming has risen sea levels and the rise in the sea levels have been the cause of these high category hurricanes.

Trump’s comments contradict everything he said following Hurrican Irma.

“Hurricane Irma is of epic proportion, perhaps bigger than we have ever seen,” Trump tweeted as Irma moved closer to Florida.

Earlier this month he tweeted, “Hurricane looks like largest ever recorded in the Atlantic!”

And on Thursday in Florida, before his comments aboard Air Force One about climate change, Trump said the people of Florida experienced something “the likes of which we can say really say nobody’s ever seen before.”

“They’ve never seen a category like this come in because it came in really at a five,” he said.
