“I love the president's sense of humor, but I also think he's saying something else,” Scaramucci told CNN’s “State of the Union” when asked about a recent tweet on global warming from the president.

“And I think you guys should ask him directly if he's a climate change denier or not," Scaramucci continued. "I think you will find you will be surprised by that answer.”  

Trump last week mentioned global warming on Twitter, referencing the Paris climate agreement that he vowed to pull the United States out of earlier this year.

Scaramucci said in the interview that individuals will soon understand the president’s view on the climate agreement.

“And so my prediction is, is that sometime at the end of 2018, people will look back at him and say, 'wow, he had a lot of common sense by getting out of that climate accord,' ” he said. “But he's pretty much a practical, common sense-oriented guy.”
