Prince Charles Goes On 90-Minute Climate Rant With Trump
President Trump said he and Prince Charles gabbed for 90 minutes about climate change — and that the queen’s son did all the talking.
Trump had planned on just a 15-minute chat with the Prince of Wales on Monday as part of his state visit to the UK this week.
“It turned out to be an hour-and-a-half. And he did most of the talking,” Trump said in an interview with Piers Morgan on “Good Morning Britain” that aired Wednesday. “He is really into climate change.”
“What he really wants and what he feels warmly about is the future,” Trump added. “He wants to make sure future generations have a climate that is good climate, as opposed to a disaster. And I agree.”
Trump, who pulled the US out of the Paris Agreement on climate change in 2017, said he insisted to Prince Charles that America “right now has among the cleanest climates there are, based on all statistics, and it’s even getting better.”
The prince, 70, has long spoken out about the impact of climate change and urged world leaders to move toward more sustainable measures during a two-week United Nations conference in 2015.
Later in the interview, Morgan asked Trump, “Do you personally believe in climate change?”
“I believe there’s a change in weather. And I think it changes both ways,”‘ Trump replied. “Don’t forget, it used to be called global warming, that wasn’t working, then it was called climate change. Now it’s actually called extreme weather. Because with extreme weather you can’t miss.”
