President Donald Trump used the weekend’s winter storm to mock global warming on Twitter as he warned citizens to stay inside.

‘Be careful and try staying in your house. Large parts of the Country are suffering from tremendous amounts of snow and near record setting cold,’ the president tweeted Sunday morning.

‘Amazing how big this system is. Wouldn’t be bad to have a little of that good old fashioned Global Warming right now!’ he added.

The storm is bringing some of the coldest temperatures of the season as it tracked east Saturday evening into Sunday morning.

In October, the president said during a visit to inspect hurricane damage in the southern state of Georgia that climate change ‘is going to go back and forth,’ rather than be permanent.

Trump has conflated short-term weather patterns with longer-term climate change before, even though the White House’s own National Climate Assessment rejects the idea that a particular plunge in temperatures can cast uncertainty on whether Earth is warming.

That report, issued in November, said climate change ‘is transforming where and how we live and presents growing challenges to human health and quality of life, the economy, and the natural systems that support us’.

However, Trump said at the time that he didn’t believe it.

‘I don’t believe it. I’ve seen it, I’ve read some of it, and it’s fine,’ he added.

He also seemed to push the blame to other nations, saying the US is ‘the cleanest we’ve ever been’.

‘And here’s the other thing, you’re going to have to China and Japan and all of Asia and all of these other countries, you know, it addresses our country. Right now we’re the cleanest we’ve ever been. And that’s very important to me. But if we’re clean, but every other place on Earth is dirty, that’s not so good, so I want clean air, I want clean water, very important,’ he said.
