Former Vice President Al Gore met with President-elect Donald Trump for what he described as “an extremely interesting conversation” at Trump Tower on Monday. One in which he described as “lengthy and very productive”. A conversation which Gore said is “to be continued”.
Gore said he met with both the president-elect and Ivanka Trump, who reportedly wants to make climate change one of her signature issues.
Gore praised Ivanka Trump’s commitment to the issue, saying her passion was “certainly evident” during the brief conversation they had before his meeting with Trump.
Before running for office, Trump called climate change a hoax “created by and for the Chinese.” However, more recently Trump said he has an “open mind” on the issue in an interview with the New York Times last month.
