"And I wonder how your hair would fare in a blizzard?" she added. 

Klobuchar announced her candidacy on Sunday in Minneapolis, where scores of supporters stood outside in heavy snowfall.

Trump afterward took to Twitter to criticize her campaign rollout. 

"Amy Klobuchar announced that she is running for President, talking proudly of fighting global warming while standing in a virtual blizzard of snow, ice and freezing temperatures," Trump tweeted. "Bad timing. By the end of her speech she looked like a Snowman(woman)!"

Klobuchar during her speech highlighted the ways she hoped to tackle environmental issues, including by saying she would direct the U.S. to rejoin the Paris climate agreement "on day one" of her administration. The Trump administration announced the U.S. was leaving the accord in 2017.

Klobuchar also vowed to "put forth sweeping legislation to invest in green jobs and infrastructure" if elected.

Klobuchar became the latest Democrat to enter the 2020 presidential campaign, joining Sens. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), Cory Booker (N.J.), Kamala Harris (Calif.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), among others.
