Prince Charles lectures Donald Trump on climate change

Donald Trump has revealed he was pressed on climate change by the Prince of Wales during a lengthy one-to-one meeting in London.

Charles ‘did most of the talking’ during the chat, according to the US President.

Mr Trump, who has previously accused climate experts of having a ‘political agenda’, told ITV’s Good Morning Britain he ‘totally listened’ to the Prince when the issue came up.

The President said: ‘What he really feels one way about is the future.

‘He wants to make sure future generations have climate that is good climate as opposed to a disaster, and I agree.

‘I did mention a number of things, I did say the United States right now has among the cleanest climates.’

Asked if Charles moved him on the issue, he said: ‘What moved me was his passion for future generations, he’s really not doing this for him, he’s doing this for future generations.

‘This is real, he believes that. He wants to have a world that’s good for future generations and I do, too.

‘He’s Prince Charles, he doesn’t have to worry about future generations unless he’s a very good person who cares about people, and that’s what impressed me, maybe the most.’
