[Ed. – No one today even knows Trump tweeted this in 2012. Was it a silly thing to tweet? Yes. Was there any value in putting the five-year-old tweet front and center in order to claim embarrassment about the president? No. Brown just makes himself look petty with this move. Seems to be a trend that won’t quit.]
California Gov. Jerry Brown trashed President Donald Trump to Chinese officials on Tuesday at a climate change conference in Bonn, Germany — just as the president wrapped up a visit to several Asian nations, including China.
Brown told the Chinese officials that Americans were “embarrassed” by Trump’s statement that climate change was a Chinese hoax. He called it “probably the most absurd thing that has ever been said on the topic,” according to the Sacramento Bee. …
Brown had been referring to Trump’s comment in a tweet in November 2012: “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.”
