Washington D.C. [USA], Jan 29 (ANI): US President Donald Trump, keeping up with his penchant for creating words, asked global "waming" to make a return for the "beautiful Midwest" which is currently experiencing chilling weather conditions due to a polar vortex.
"In the beautiful Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded. In coming days, expected to get even colder. People can’t last outside even for minutes. What the hell is going on with Global Waming? Please come back fast, we need you!," Trump tweeted on Monday night (local time).
Previously, Trump has stumped readers by coining terms like "covfefe" without giving a clarification regarding its true meaning before deleting the tweet.
Twitter users, assuming "waming" for "warming", have slammed the President, with one Twitter user stating, "Are you really this ignorant about climate change? Have you never read a book in your life?"

"We will never again see a President like this. I intend to enjoy his presidency to the fullest," another Twitter user remarked.

"You’re kidding, right?! You do know Global Warming is causing climate change which means MORE deeper colder winters for the “beautiful Midwest”. #sad #badforfarmers #ActOnClimate #ClimateChangeIsReal," another reply to Trump's tweet read.
The US President's recent tweet adds to the bizarre things Trump has already said about global warming. "The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive," Trump had tweeted in 2012.

The US pulled out of the 2015 Paris Agreement, leading to an international uproar, in 2017 after Trump won the 2016 US Presidential elections.
The agreement aims to combat climate change, strengthening the global response to the threat of climate change by keeping a global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.
Furthermore, it aims to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius, according to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
The United Nations has labelled climate change a "defining issue of our time" due to the drastic modifications in weather patterns caused by over a century of industrialisation.
"From shifting weather patterns that threaten food production, to rising sea levels that increase the risk of catastrophic flooding, the impacts of climate change are global in scope and unprecedented in scale," the United Nations mentions.
"Without drastic action today, adapting to these impacts in the future will be more difficult and costly," the organisation outlines. (ANI)
