Al Gore: Having Trump In White House "Hurts Our Standing In The World In Many Ways"


Former Vice President Al Gore met with the then-President-Elect Donald Trump at Trump Tower to discuss climate change a month after the 2016 election and said he was initially optimistic that Trump would "come to his senses."

Now, Gore told Willie Geist on NBC TODAY he was wrong.

AL GORE: Our country is going through a challenging time for sure, we've never had a president who has deliberately made decisions, the effect of which is to tear down America's standing in the world, starting with the withdrawal from the Paris Agreement...The climate crisis is by far the most serious challenge we face, but he's also undermined our alliances, such as NATO, and hurt our standing in the world in many ways.
