In a post-debate appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Thursday, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump followed up on a question from the debate about climate change.
Trump completely dismissed climate change as a threat and pointed to other nations’ responses to it.
“I consider climate change to be not one of our big problems,” he said. “I consider it not be a big problem at all. I think it’s weather. I think it’s weather changes. There could be some man-made something. But, you know, if you look at China, they’re doing nothing about it, other countries are doing nothing about it. It’s a big planet. I do not view — I view climate change as being– the big problem we have is nuclear climate change. That’s what our climate change is and that’s our problem. Putin is doing it. I don’t believe Putin is a believer at all. Putin is doing it for his own economic advantage if he is actually in favor of climate change.”
