Sanders Mocks Trump's Contention That Chinese Created Climate Change

"MANCHESTER, N.H. — Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders, who’s repeatedly accused Donald Trump of being a divisive “demagogue,” opened a new line of attack Monday night on the Republican front-runner: lampooning his views on climate change.

Appearing at a rally here, Sanders referenced a three-year-old statement from Trump in which the real-estate mogul asserted that “the concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.”

'What an insight,' the Vermont senator told his audience in a sarcastic tone. 'How brilliant can you be. The entire scientific community has concluded that climate change is real and causing major problems and Trump believes that it’s a hoax created by the Chinese. Surprised it wasn’t the Mexicans.' "
