Former US President Donald Trump has teased that the climate crisis is deepening. “We’re going to have a little more beachfront property, which isn’t the worst thing in the world,” he said at a campaign rally in Anchorage, Alaska, on Saturday night. “I heard the oceans are going to rise an eighth of an inch in the next 300 years. We’ve got bigger problems than that.”
Trump opened up about the source of the number. Congressional elections will be held in the United States in November. During his campaign appearance in Alaska, Trump made it clear whether he wants to run for president again in 2024. He simply declared: “We will take back our magnificent White House.” He also reiterated his denial that he was cheated out of winning the 2020 elections through fraud.
Trump has repeatedly doubted that climate change is man-made – such doubts have been scientifically disproved. During his administration, the Republican Party withdrew the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement. His Democratic successor, Joe Biden, immediately reversed that move after taking office early last year, taking the US back into the deal. Biden has declared the fight against climate change one of his most important goals.
“We Love You”, “We Want You Back”
During his appearance in Alaska, Trump announced his support for Sarah Palin, who ran as the vice presidential nominee in 2008 and is currently running for a seat in the US House of Representatives. Trump called on voters to send “the great, legendary Palin” to Washington.
Palin made a brief appearance with Trump on Saturday night. “We love you,” he told the former president. “We need you back.” Trump announced that Republicans would retake the House of Representatives in the House elections. Referring to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the 76-year-old Republican said, “We’re going to end the political career of crazy Nancy Pelosi once and for all.”
