Climate change not hoax, but it will 'change back again': President Trump

"I don't pledge anything". "But [I] will tell you, I have no intention of doing that", he said. Stahl, however, continued to press for a definitive answer, and eventually coaxed an emotional, and rather personal, response from Trump. I don't want to lose millions and millions of jobs. Why should I pledge to you? I don't wanna pledge. I don't have to pledge to you.

"I'm not going to ask it again", she said, giving up.

To date, 32 people have been charged or pleaded guilty in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. "They meddled", he said of Russian Federation, "but I think China meddled too". Give me a break. "Now I say they're babies", Trump said. "Call Russia. It's so ridiculous", he told CBS.

Asked whether he thought Moscow meddled in the 2016 presidential election, Trump said he did not think that it was just Russian Federation.

"Had I not made that speech, we would not have won", he said, the "victory" being the Senate judiciary Committee's confirmation of his pick.

When Stahl moved to the topic of North Korea, Trump began with the lie that President Obama had the US on the verge of war with Kim. And I think other countries.

Finally, the president revealed his capacity for self-reflection and humility when Stahl asked him if there was anything he wished he hadn't said or done in his nearly two years in office. Breitbart News asked as president Trump spoke with reporters on the South Lawn of the White House before departing for a Kentucky rally.

Asked about Putin's involvement in assassinating political foes, Trump said, "Probably he is, yeah".

However, he announced the United States would withdraw from the Paris climate change agreement, which commits another 187 other countries to keeping rising global temperatures "well below" 2C above pre-industrial levels and "endeavour to limit" them even more, to 1.5C.

The exchange got really heated when Trump scolded Stahl for the way she was conducting the interview. I think he's sort of a Democrat, if you want to know the truth.

McConnell returned the compliment on stage and told the president to continue nominating judges and 'we'll keep confirming them'. He did, however, raise the possibility of " severe punishment " for the regime in a recent interview with "60 Minutes".

"Sure. I know all these things".

"But you love him?"

"You know what?" Trump added when told it appeared he had accused Ford of lying in a speech.

Stahl said that when speaking at the hearing, one thing Dr. Ford remembered the worst moment was that the two men were laughing at her.

"Look. Let it be whatever it is".

Asked about Jamal Khashoggi, Trump said that if the attack was found to be a state-sponsored murder, there would be "severe punishment" for those involved, saying there is "something really awful and disgusting" about murdering a reporter - a view Trump himself said people might be surprised to hear from him. "I have a good chemistry with him". "China would love to make a deal", said Trump. Look at the frightful threats that were made.

Much of Trump's cabinet has questioned the scientific consensus that humans are causing higher temperatures that pose immediate and growing threats.

Senior members of the president's administration have been pressed on their positions in light of the president's past comments.

The Nobel Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issued a gloomy report last week, saying that the world is only a couple decades away from facing significant food shortages, extreme weather, and mass migration if we can't prevent global temperatures from reaching a critical threshold. Asked whether he would like to see China plunging into economic depression, Trump said he merely wants it to "open their markets like ours" in a "fair deal".

"Lesley, it's OK. In the meantime, I'm President, and you're not".
