>>> PRESIDENT TRUMPMP BELIEVES CLIMATE CHANGE IS A HOAX. WE KNOW THIS BECAUSE HE HAS SAID IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN. >> SO OBAMA IS TALKING ABOUT ALL OF THIS WITH THE GLOBAL WARMING AND THE THAT. A LOT OF IT'S A HOAX. IT'S A HOAX. IT'S A MONEY MAKING INDUSTRY, OKAY? IT'S A HOAX. >> THE PRESIDENT HAS TWEETED CLIMATE CHANGE SKEPTICISM AT LEAST 115 TIMES INCLUDING A CLAIM THAT THE CONCEPT OF GLOBAL WARMING WAS CREATED BY AND FOR THE CHINESE. SO THE PRESIDENT HAS VERY FIRMLY ESTABLISHED HIS POSITION ON THE ISSUE AND HAS SHOWN NO INDICATION THAT HE HAS CHANGED THAT POSITION. BUT SINCE THE PRESIDENT'S VIEWS TEND TO BE MALLEABLE, LET'S SAY, REPORTERS HAVE BEEN ASKING THE PRESIDENT AND HIS AIDES THE SAME QUESTION OVER AND OVER AGAIN IN LIGHT OF THE PARIS DECISION.

DOES THE PRESIDENT STILL BELIEVE CLIMATE CHANGE IS A HOAX? >> DO YOU BELIEVE CLIMATE CHANGE IS A HOAX? >> THANK YOU, EVERYBODY. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >> CAN YOU SAY WHETHER OR NOT THE PRESIDENT BELIEVES THAT HUMAN ACTIVITY IS CONTRIBUTING TO THE WARMING OF THE CLIMATE? >> HONESTLY, I HAVEN'T ASKED HIM. I CAN GET BACK TO YOU. >> YES OR NO? DOES THE PRESIDENT BELIEVE THAT CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL AND A THREAT TO THE UNITED STATES? >> YOU KNOW, WHAT'S I INTERESTI ABOUT ALL THE DISCUSSIONS WE HAD THROUGH THE LAST SEVERAL WEEKS HAVE BEEN FOCUSED ON ONE SINGULAR ISSUE. IS PARIS GOOD OR NOT FOR THIS COUNTRY? THAT'S THE DISCUSSIONS I'VE HAD WITH THE PRESIDENT.

>> I'D LIKE TO GO BACK TO THE FIRST QUESTION THAT WAS ASKED THAT YOU DIDN'T ANSWER. DOES THE PRESIDENT BELIEVE TODAY THAT CLIMATE CHANGE IS A HOAX? >> YOU KNOW, I DID ANSWER THE QUESTION BECAUSE I SAID THE DISCUSSIONS THE PRESIDENT AND I HAD HAD OVER THE LAST SEVERAL WEEKS HAVE BEEN FOCUSED ON ONE KEY ISSUE. IS PARIS GOOD OR BAD FOR THIS COUNTRY? >> SHOULDN'T YOU BE ABLE TO TELL THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHETHER OR NOT THE PRESIDENT STILL BELIEVES THAT CLIMATE CHANGE IS A HOAX? WHERE DOES HE STAND? >> AS I INDICATED SEVERAL TIMES THROUGH THE PROCESS, THERE'S ENOUGH TO DEAL WITH WITH RESPECT TO THE PARIS AGREEMENT AND MAKING AN INFORMED DECISION ABOUT THIS IMPORTANT ISSUE.

>> WHAT DOES THE PRESIDENT ACTUALLY BELIEVE ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE? DOES HE STILL BELIEVE IT'S A HOAX? COULD YOU CLARIFY THAT? >> I HAVE NOT HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE THAT DISCUSSION. >> WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE FOR YOU TO HAVE THAT CONVERSATION WITH HIM AND THEN REPORT BACK TO US AT THE NEXT BRIEFING? >> I IF CAN, I WILL. >> I WOULDN'T HOLD MY BREATH ON THAT ONE. IN THE ABSENCE OF A NEW ANSWER, WE MUST, ALAS, STICK WITH THE OLD ONE. THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, A NOTED AND CONSISTENT PEDDLER OF CONSPIRACY THEORIES ABOUT EVERYTHING FROM MILLIONS OF ALLEGEDLY ILLEGAL VOTERS TO PRESIDENT OBAMA'S FORGED BIRTH CERTIFICATE AND TED CRUZ'S DAD POSSIBLY BEING INVOLVED IN THE ASSASSINATION OF JFK ALSO BELIEVES THE MOST DANGEROUS AND DESTRUCTIVE CONSPIRACY THEORY, THE ONE THAT CLIMATE CHANGE IS MADE UP, I GUESS BY THE CHINESE, AND THAT ALL THOSE SCIENTISTS ACROSS THE WORLD MUST BE IN ON IT.

SO IS THAT WHY HE PULLED THE U.S. OUT OF THE PARIS ACCORD OR DI .
