Trump just said that cold weather means Climate Change isnt real


Donald Trump is facing some ridicule this morning, after the President of the Uniited States of America tweeted that the winter weather being experienced is evidence that climate change is a myth.

'Brutal and Extended Cold Blast could shatter ALL RECORDS – Whatever happened to Global Warming?' he wrote, to his 55.8 million Twitter followers.

Here are just a few responses from indignant Twitter users who believe in science:
