Donald Trump meets with Al Gore, who says they sought ‘common ground’ on climate change

gore-trump-towersPresident-elect Donald Trump met Monday with former Vice President Al Gore and discussed climate change, as the two men with opposing views of the issue sought common ground.

After the meeting at Trump Tower in Manhattan, Mr. Gore gave an upbeat assessment of the powwow.

“I had a lengthy and very productive session with the president-elect. It was a sincere search for areas of common ground,” he told reporters in the lobby.

The high-profile meeting raised eyebrows because President-elect Donald Trump has been an outspoken skeptic of climate change and Mr. Gore is one of the world’s most prominent advocates for battling climate change, receiving a Nobel Prize in 2007 for the effort.

During the campaign, Mr. Trump raised doubts about the climate change issue and once mused that it was a hoax by China to encourage the U.S. to adopt energy restrictions that would harm the economy.

Mr. Trump also has said he will consider pulling the U.S. out of the international agreement on climate change that was struck in Paris in 2015.

Earlier in the day, transition team officials said Mr. Gore would be meeting with Mr. Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump. But Mr. Gore said that after a brief meeting with Ms. Trump, he spent the bulk of his time with the president-elect.

“I found it an extremely interesting conversation, and to be continued, and I’m just going to leave it at that,” said Mr. Gore, who was the 2000 Democratic presidential nominee.

    Donald Trump didn’t get this far by not recognizing who his enemies are . Al Gore is Kryptonite and the election of Donald Trump Will be the full focus of the Democrat rat pack until they try and oust him or make sure he is a one term President .
    The Climate Fraud industry co-ops those they think can act as fronts for their agenda . Using the Presidents daughter is right in their wheelhouse just like the other dupes they pull in to sell their fraud .
    Let’s hope the Trump team can resist kryptonite .

    Sounds like Gore didn’t get the memo . Donald Trump will be President . If there are any more meetings it isn’t up to him to tell the world .

    Should never have done so. Skeptics were never offered a seat at Obama’s table – never given a hearing before Obama – only Congress and the Senate. Need to cut these people out of the loop and not give them a foot in the door.
