Donald Trump, who is still president of the United States, has once again questioned global warming in a tweet, this time while Australia and New Zealand sizzle in record-breaking temperatures.

"You're kidding, right?! You do know Global Warming is causing climate change which means MORE deeper colder winters for the Midwest sad #badforfarmers #ActOnClimate #ClimateChangeIsReal", another reply read.

He tweeted, "In the attractive Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded. People can't last outside even for minutes", he tweeted. What the hell is going on with Global [Warming]? "Please come back fast, we need you!"

The public seems to be accepting the scientific view over Trump's. Numerous states that are likely to see disproportionately negative effects in the coming years are some that supported Mr. Trump in 2016, like Florida and Texas, as well as others in the Southeast, which may sustain increased coastal damage because of more powerful storms, according to a new report by the Brookings Institute. Trump tweeted on Monday night. Because the Earth's climate is changing so rapidly, the environment is prone to extreme weather events, including these uncharacteristically cold winters.

Trump's tweets assume significance in light of his non-committal attitude when it comes to global warming.

President Donald Trump is sharing his thoughts on global warming ahead of the arctic conditions expected in parts of the country this week. "And in fact, "Global Waming" is making these extreme cold outbreaks more rare, exactly as we expected", said Grist staff writer Eric Holthaus.

In response to his tweet, several users mocked the president for his incorrect words and misunderstanding of climate change versus weather.

"In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year's Eve on record".

The bottom line, as the post details, is that "even though our planet is warming, and record warm days far outnumber record cold ones, we still see periods of colder weather from time to time".
