Scaramucci: Trump’s answer on climate change will surprise you

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said in a Sunday show interview that President Trump’s view on climate change may be surprising.

“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.

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.”
