US President Donald Trump has been dodging questions about climate change after a huge, deadly hurricane ravaged Texas and surrounding states, and then another huge, deadly hurricane ravaged the entirety of the state of Florida. Reporters were quick to ask him if these devastating storms have changed his mind about climate change, which he believes is a hoax, which is the reason he pulled America, the second largest emitter of carbon in the world, out of the UN treaty to reduce the effects of climate change, the Paris accord.

‘We’ve had bigger storms than this’

After he’s spent the last couple of weeks bragging about the “historic” biggest storms ever that were battering his country, President Trump is now backtracking what he said and contradicting himself, shrugging off the climate change claims and saying, “We’ve had bigger storms than this.”

At the time of Hurricane Irma, Trump was tweeting things like, “Hurricane Irma is of epic proportion, perhaps bigger than we have ever seen,” as it stormed its way towards the Florida Keys, and also, “Hurricane looks like largest ever recorded in the Atlantic!” It was weird, like these hurricanes that were killing people were something to be proud of. He’s backtracking now, but for all the wrong reasons.
