  • Extreme cold wave? Donald Trump jokes that global warming may help

In response, the president's critics wasted no time giving Trump a reality check. He even bragged about pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord and made a ridiculous wisecrack about borrowing other countries' global warming problems.

"In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year's Eve on record", Trump began, talking not about the eastern part of the globe but of east US.

On another matter, in an impromptu interview with The New York Times Thursday at his golf club in West Palm Beach, Florida, Trump said he thinks special counsel Robert Mueller is "going to be fair" with respect to Mueller's investigation of Russian meddling in the US presidential election previous year and alleged ties between Trump campaign associates and Russia.

US President Donald Trump today mocked the science-backed global warming theory and joked that the alarming rise in the Earth's temperature may bring relief to those reeling under a cold wave on the country's east coast. "Groan - you really understand climate change, don't you.?" one Twitter user wondered. It's freezing outside because it's winter and Arctic blasts happen...but in Trump's addled mind it's proof that global warming is a hoax.

"You see Donald, GW causes EXTREME WEATHER. Therefore it is possible, if not likely that this weeks record cold is related to Global Warming", a follow-up tweet noted. It's abundantly clear this Adminstration won't tackle climate change head on, so state and local governments must. "Man, we could use a big fat dose of global warming!". The negative reaction continued as Donald Trump's attempt at trolling appeared to backfire.
