US President Donald Trump today said his country's East Coast "could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming" as bitter cold temperatures were expected freeze large swaths over the holiday weekend.

New Year's Eve in NY is expected to hit a high of 22 degrees.

On another matter, in an impromptu interview with The New York Times Thursday at his golf club in West Palm Beach, Florida, Trump said he thinks special counsel Robert Mueller is "going to be fair" with respect to Mueller's investigation of Russian meddling in the US presidential election past year and alleged ties between Trump campaign associates and Russia.

Trump says the east coast of the United States could "use a little bit of that good old Global Warming" as it faces its coldest New Year's Eve on record - appearing to either misunderstand or ignore the scientific evidence on climate change. And in December 2013 he was in a "freezing" Los Angeles, prompting him to say "Global warming is a total, and very expensive, hoax!"

Trump recently removed climate change from the list of worldwide threats facing the U.S. He's also signed an executive order undoing much of former President Barack Obama's plans to curb global warming and announced plans to pull the country from the Paris climate accord.

President Trump continues his denial of climate change. "Groan - you really understand climate change, don't you.?" one Twitter user wondered.

In response to Donald Trump's tweet in mockery of global warming, the opposition was on fire.

"THAT'S NOT WHAT THAT MEANS!" another tweet read.

Trump even got owned by Lisa Simpson, who once explained to her dad, Homer, that "Global warming can cause weather at both extremes - hot and cold".
