“We will also cancel billions in global warming payments to the United Nations, and use that money to support America’s vital environmental infrastructure and natural resources,” Trump said.

President Barack Obama has pledged $3 billion to the GCF and has already handed over $500 million.

“We don’t even know who’s doing what with the money,” Trump said, promising to spend the money in the U.S. instead.

“We’re going to work on our own environment,” Trump said. “That includes protecting the Florida Everglades.”

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’ has blamed global warming for the recent flooding in Miami Beach and also suggested global warming strengthened Hurricane Matthew.
