EPA Administrator Not Saying that Trump believes that the Climate Change is a Hoax, Defends Paris Exit

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt still won't answer whether President Trump believes climate change is a hoax, saying the question is a distraction from the issue of whether the Paris Climate Agreement was a good deal for the U.S.

"Why can't the president just say whether or not he believes in man-made climate change,” ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos asked during an interview on "This Week" Sunday. “You speak for the president, you're the EPA administrator. Do you know what he believes?"

"I think the whole question is an effort to get it off the point, and the issue of whether Paris is good for this country or not," Pruitt responded. "The president has indicated the climate changes."

Stephanopoulos pressed on the issue of whether human activity contributes to global warming, "Very simply, do you know if President Trump still believes that climate change is a hoax?"

The EPA chief said his conversations with the president focused on whether the Paris Climate Agreement was good or not for the country, and not his views on climate change.

"Our discussion, George, has been about the agreement, the efficacy of the [Paris] agreement. That's where we spent the last several weeks, focused upon the merits and demerits of the Paris agreement. He put America first. He said that he's going to put jobs and the environment first," Pruitt replied.

Trump has previously said he believes global warming is a “hoax,” and in September 2015 told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, "I'm not a believer in man-made global warming.”

Haley, Trump's ambassador to the UN has flat-out stated that Trump does NOT think AGW is a hoax.

The administration is (still) confused.
Thanks from tbbyolumbatobby
