Trump mocks Klobuchar’s snow covered presidential announcement

It didn’t take President Trump long to notice — and mock — Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s quintessentially Minnesotan announcement she wants to challenge him for the White House in 2020.

In a post on Twitter, Trump noted that Klobuchar focused part of her speech on tackling climate change while snow poured down at the outdoor event on Boom Island in Minneapolis.

“Well, it happened again. Amy Klobuchar announced that she is running for President, talking proudly of fighting global warming while standing in a virtual blizzard of snow, ice and freezing temperatures,” Trump wrote. “Bad timing. By the end of her speech she looked like a Snowman(woman)!”

Klobuchar responded with some snark of her own: “Science is on my side, @realDonaldTrump. Looking forward to debating you about climate change (and many other issues). And I wonder how your hair would fare in a blizzard?”

In her announcement speech, Klobuchar promised on her first day in office to rejoin the Paris climate agreement that Trump rejected in June 2017. Minnesota may be in the midst of a wintry wallop, but the state’s overall climate has been warming for decades — a good example of the differences between weather and climate.

“The people are on our side when it comes to climate change. Why? Because like you and I, they believe in science,” Klobuchar said.

While she touched on a variety of issues where she differs from the president, Klobuchar didn’t name Trump in her nearly half-hour speech.
