Trump tweets that 'cold' East Coast 'could use a little bit of' global warming

Shut the internet please

President Trump took to Twitter yesterday to note the record-breaking cold weather currently slamming much of the eastern U.S.

“In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record,” Trump tweeted. “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!”

2017 is gearing up to end among the top three warmest years on record and the warmest year with ENSO-neutral conditions. The graph includes several end-of-year results based on the following three scenarios:

If December 2017 matched the fifth highest temperature for December (represented by the black circle): 2017 would end up as the third warmest year on record at +0.83°C (1.49°F), behind 2016 (warmest) and 2015 (second warmest).
If December 2017 has a temperature departure of 0.85°C (1.53°F) (represented by the black square): 2017 would end up as the third warmest year (+0.84°C / +1.51°F) on record, behind 2016 (warmest) and 2015 (second warmest).
If December 2017 matched the 1998 monthly value (represented by the black triangle): 2017 would end up as the third warmest year (+0.82°C / +1.48°F) on record, behind 2016 (warmest) and 2015 (second warmest).

He has a sense of humor. That is a sign of greater intelligence, an ability to see a bigger picture. I mean, if the scientists are so smart..how come they are not president? See, I have sense of humor too

Yes it is cold  but it is also the hottest driest and most storm-prone year in history in many parts of the world causing catastrophic devastation in California, Texas, Louisiana and Washington, as well as, decades of drought in Africa and flooding in coastal countries everywhere and melting ice in the Arctic causing ecological devastation.

is there a number on how much are we spending on fixing the damages of natural disasters? Seems to me that they are more frequent

I am not sure if there is such data. But, last week the Congress announced that is set to consider an $81-billion disaster aid package that includes wildfire recovery money for California and other Western states as well as hurricane relief with a price tag reflecting a year of record-setting natural calamities.

Weather and climate are not the same. Someone should tell him that

I believe that he is concerned about climate change. He recently applied for a permit to put up seawalls around his golf course in UK. The reason stated on the permit application was "rising sea levels"

and since the Earth is flat, we can control the climate with tilting the surface and distribute the temperature as needed

I don't think there was any other President who knows his supporters and opponents better
