One of many Trump falsehoods that were fact-checked tonight, this one by Politico:  Fact: Trump claimed climate change is a hoax created by China Clinton: “Donald thinks that climate change is a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese. I think it’s real.” Trump: “I did not say that. I did not say that.” Clinton went after Trump for their starkly different views on climate change, noting “Donald thinks that climate change is a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese. I think it’s real.” Trump’s quick reply — “I did not say that. I did not say that.” — ignores his own Twitter feed. Back on Nov. 6, 2012, Trump did indeed post this: “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.” And the tweet lives on. It’s picked up 37,000-plus retweets and 22,000-plus likes since it was posted on the last Election Day.
