Kathleen Rice goes off on Trump’s global warming tweet
President Donald Trump continues to stir controversy while on his holiday vacation in Florida.
Trump tweeted about the Northeast's deep freeze, while seeming to mock climate change. The tweet said, “In the east, it could be the coldest New Year's Eve on record. 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. Bundle up!”
In response, Long Island Rep. Kathleen Rice is going off on the president’s tweet.
Rice said, "Instead of tweeting like a child who hates science class, if you're so worried about the cold you could always send your 45M+ followers info about how to find shelter, prevent hypothermia & frost bite, prevent pipes from freezing, protect their pets, etc."
Rice also added, "Not even to mention the fact that you are in Florida. At your country club. Where you played golf today. Again. There are people all over America who will sleep outside tonight because they have no warm place to go."
