"In the attractive Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded", the president tweeted.

Some forecasts show parts of IL and Minnesota could reach a wind chill of -60 degrees Fahrenheit - as cold as Antarctica. What the hell is going on with Global Waming?

But some scientists believe global warming may actually be responsible for the 35-degree drop in temperatures as a wave of polar air hits the Chicago area this week.

The Twitterati, assuming "waming" for "warming", slammed the president, with one of them stating, "Are you really this ignorant about climate change?".

Taking the sunny view that Trump-loving areas in line for rising seas, brutal droughts, and other climate havoc are rational actors who might be convinced to support progressive notions of how to mitigate the dangers, the authors write that "the current gridlock might not be as permanent as it now seems". Amid freezing temperatures past year, Trump tweeted: "Brutal and Extended Cold Blast could shatter ALL RECORDS - Whatever happened to Global Warming?".

In response to his tweet, several users mocked the president for his incorrect words and misunderstanding of climate change versus weather.

"Many of the jurisdictions that have selected political leaders opposed to climate policy are the most exposed to the harms of climate change", the authors note. There is a huge difference between weather and climate that Trump just doesnt understand or intentionally misleads people.

In December 2017, the president suggested that global warming doesn't exist - but, once again, thought it could help against the cold.

United Nations' World Meteorological Organization Secretary-General Petteri Taalas warned in 2018 that temperatures are predicted to rise up to 9 degrees by the end of the century.
