It’s how they sometimes say that you should never rant on the internet, more importantly on Twitter. Because you never know how that’s going to fly back and hit you in the head. And when you are running for the White House to become the President of the United States, you absolutely, absolutely shouldn’t.

Donald Trump, the billionaire real-estate mogul who’s currently surging in popularity ratings among the crowd of Republican contenders for the White House in 2016, apparently does not believe in either climate change or global warming. Yes, the man, who spoke out aggressively against the widespread immigration from Mexico and who now wants to build a giant wall across the US-Mexico border, thinks the global warming is a hoax.

And how did the world come to know about it? They went digging deep into Trump’s Twitter timeline, as far back as 2013 to discover these gems. Take a look.

In one tweet, Trump went so far to question the amount of money the government was spending to tackle global warming. Because, in his opinion, it’s an expensive exercise. He also says that there are ‘global warming hoaxers’ (yes, apparently there are such kinds of people in the world) who have exploited weather events to stamp higher taxes on people.

And who do you think is behind the creation of this concept of global warming? Well, the Chinese of course.

But for Trump, such opinions do not limit to Twitter. Yes, he went up on a radio show and said that he considers all this just to be weather, or rather a change of weather.

When Trump had announced his candidacy for the White House, much of the American media had brushed it off as a mere publicity stunt. But now after his ratings have gone up, they are apparently forced to cover him more. While many may have criticised Trump for his lack of clarity on critical policy issues, the Democrats would nevertheless be happy. Let the man talk, they would probably say.
