Here’s the exact tweet where Trump claims the Chinese invented global warming
The tweets don’t lie.
“Donald thinks that climate change is a hoax, perpetrated by the Chinese,” Clinton said in key moments from the first debate. “I think it’s real.”
Trump was quick to interrupt her. “I did not,” he chimed in. “I do not say that. I do not say that.”
Trump’s Twitter history proves otherwise. People were quick to highlight a tweet from November 2012 in which Trump says, “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.”
The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.

In fact, that tweet, despite being nearly 4 years old, was one of the most popular of the night and the top retweeted tweet during the debate. It’s been shared more than 90,000 times.
You can say what you want during the debates, but the tweets don’t lie.
