After ‘covfefe’, US President Donald Trump came up with another word – ‘waming’ – on Tuesday. He asked global “waming” to make a return for “beautiful Midwest” in the country, which is currently experiencing chilly weather conditions due to a polar vortex.
“In the beautiful Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded. In coming days, expected to get even colder. People can’t last outside even for minutes. What the hell is going on with Global Waming? Please come back fast, we need you!,” Trump tweeted.
The tweet has already received over 24,000 retweets and 98,910 likes. Earlier, Trump had shocked tweeples by by coining terms like “covfefe” without giving a clarification regarding its true meaning before deleting the tweet.
Assuming ‘waming’ stood for ‘warming’, Twitter users slammed the President, with one Twitter user stating, “Are you really this ignorant about climate change? Have you never read a book in your life?”
Donald Trump’s recent tweet adds to the bizarre things he has already said about global warming. “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive,” Trump had tweeted in 2012.
Trump has also pulled out of the Paris Agreement that aims to combat climate change by keeping a global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels.
The United Nations has labelled climate change a “defining issue of our time” due to the drastic modifications in weather patterns caused by over a century of industrialisation.
