Pew Study: Early Media Coverage of Trump 3 Times More Negative Than Obama


President Trump mocked the Paris Climate Accord he rejected earlier this year in a tweet highlighting the chilly temperatures in his home region.

"In the east, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record," Trump wrote. "Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against."

Fox News Meteorologist Rick Reichmuth said New Years Eve revelers coming to Times Square will encounter a high of 20 degrees and low temperatures in the teens after sunset.

He said the conditions in the traditional security "pens" that revelers must stay in could be "dangerous" as the temperatures drop.

On Wednesday, North American wind chills ranged from 19 degrees in Washington to minus-20 in Fargo, N.D. and even as low as minus-39 degrees in Yellowknife, the capital of Canada's Northwest Territories, Reichmuth reported.

Trump pulled America out of the climate deal earlier this year, citing the financial cost and the negative effect the plan would have on domestic jobs and production.

The president's latest expression of climate change skepticism drew an immediate backlash and pushback from his critics. They pointed out that extreme cold is not linked to climate change. 

But others pointed out that the president, as he has done before, simply intended to rile up the opposition with his latest tweet.
