Forecasters have said that the most unsafe weather is yet to come, warning of frigidly low temperatures that the region hasn't seen in a quarter century.

Trump has always denied that there is something called climate change of global warming and also made the USA pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement in 2017, months after entering the White House. His tweet late Monday wondering "What the hell is going on with Global Warming" drew a quick response from Wisconsin Rep. Mark Pocan.

"In the lovely Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded". In coming days, expected to get even colder. "People can't last outside even for minutes", he tweeted.

"Dear sir, You, once again, confuse weather and climate".

Washington under state of emergency as measles cases rise

"Climate isn't a day, climate is long term", Myers said, as he also pointed out that the pre-Thanksgiving cold snap that the President was tweeting about at the time was mainly concentrated on just one part of North America and not over the whole world.

Key climate change report from Trump's own administration: "Increases in temperatures during the growing season in the Midwest are projected to be the largest contributing factor to declines in the productivity of US agriculture".

The president faced severe criticism online after he posted the tweet.

There are many reasons Trump may be against addressing climate change, but one thing is clear: he doesn't understand the science behind it.

He even said that the footballer did not change from "neanderthal to man". "Guys, I'm sorry you thought it was racist". She replied: 'Hahahahahaha I honestly dunno why they don't bench him more '. "It's like evolution stopped for him".

This is not the first time that Trump has spoken out about his thoughts on global warming. "And in fact, "Global Waming" is making these extreme cold outbreaks more rare, exactly as we expected", said Grist staff writer Eric Holthaus.

The fact we are seeing record cold does not contradict climate research. That's why the hottest 5 years on record for our planet have all occurred since 2014.

United Nations' World Meteorological Organization Secretary-General Petteri Taalas warned in 2018 that temperatures are predicted to rise up to 9 degrees by the end of the century.
