“In 2012, President-elect Donald Trump, then a private citizen just toying with the idea of a presidential bid, said China “created” the concept of global warming “in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.”
“Four years later, Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Liu Zhenmin is saying there’s no way the Chinese government could have invented global warming as a hoax because it was Trump’s Republican predecessors — former Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W.
