Asked if he believes in climate change, President Donald Trump told “Good Morning Britain” Host Piers Morgan that he believes in weather change.

“Do you personally believe in climate change?” Morgan asked Trump in an interview Tuesday during Trump’s visit to the U.K.

“I believe that there is a change in weather. And, I think it changes both ways,” Trump responded, reminding Morgan that climate activists used to make the specific claim that the planet was warming. But, now, they invoke the broader term, “extreme weather,” which includes all types of weather events, such as tornados and hurricanes:

“I believe that there is a change in weather. And, I think it changes both ways.

“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.

“Look, we have a thing now with tornados. I don’t remember tornados in the U.S. to the extent. But, then, when you look back, 40 years ago we had the worst tornado binge that we’ve ever had. In the 1890’s, we had our worst hurricanes, and I would say we’ve had some very bad hurricanes.”
