Donald Trump denied Hillary Clinton’s accusation he claimed climate change is a hoax created by China during their face-off in the first presidential debate Monday night.
“Donald thinks that climate change is a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese. I think it’s real,” Clinton said, going after Trump for his repeated climate-change denial.
“I did not. I do not say that,” Trump responded.
Trump said global warming was created by China on Twitter in 2012:
The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.
