‘Morning Joe’ Badgers Pruitt if Trump Thinks Climate Change Is a Hoax: This Interview Has to Stop Until I Get Yes or No

‘We’re just trying to get an answer from you’

EXCERPT:

SCARBOROUGH: “So, I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I’ve got to stop. I want to stop it. This interview has to stop in its tracks until I just get a yes, no answer from you on whether you believe it’s important that Americans find out whether their President believes that climate change is a conspiracy theory based out of China.”
PRUITT: “The President has indicated, Joe, that the climate is changing. I indicated during my confirmation process that there’s a warming trend with respect to the climate. And moreover, there’s a human contribution to it. Measuring that with precision is very difficult. The real question is, what do we do about it? What we’ve done as a country is lead through innovation and technology."
