“Do you personally believe in climate change?” Morgan asked Trump in an interview Tuesday during Trump’s visit to the U.K. “I believe that there is a change in weather. And, I think it changes both ways,” Trump responded. “I believe that there is a change in weather. And, I think it changes both ways.
