Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., NY) credited America's enemies, including Syria, North Korea, and Iran, for doing more to combat climate change than the United States during a speech on the Senate floor on Thursday.

"They're taking their lead from the president, a man who is so willfully ignorant and foolish that he thinks he's clever by ridiculing the global scientific consensus on climate change whenever it snows," Schumer said about Republican lawmakers. "Well, the American people are not laughing. They weren't laughing when a U.S. Senator brought a snowball to the floor of this chamber to mock climate science. They weren't laughing when President Trump called climate change a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese."
