Donald Trump mocks Amy Klobuchar for kicking off her 2020 presidential bid with a speech about global warming in a blizzard

The US President took to Twitter to say the Democrat “looked like a Snowman(woman)” by the end of her rousing speech.


He attempted to claim that it was “bad timing” for the politician to “talk proudly of fighting global warming while standing in a virtual blizzard of snow, ice and freezing temperatures.”

But Klobuchar immediately fired back and told Trump “science is on my side”.

She then asked: “I wonder how your hair would fare in a blizzard?”

Klobuchar on Sunday joined the growing group of Democrats jostling to be president and positioned herself as the most prominent Midwestern candidate in the field.

"For every American, I'm running for you," she told an exuberant crowd gathered on a freezing, snowy afternoon at a park along the Mississippi River.

"And I promise you this: As your president, I will look you in the eye. I will tell you what I think. I will focus on getting things done.

“That's what I've done my whole life. And no matter what, I'll lead from the heart," the three-term senator said.

FROSTY RECEPTION

Klobuchar, who has prided herself for achieving results through bipartisan cooperation, did not utter Trump's name during her kickoff speech.

But she did bemoan the conduct of "foreign policy by tweet" and said Americans must "stop the fear-mongering and stop the hate. … We all live in the same country of shared dreams."

And she said that on her first day as president, she would have the US rejoin an international climate agreement that Trump has withdrawn from.

Klobuchar also spoke of the need to "heal the heart of our democracy and renew our commitment to the common good."

There has never been this many women running in a presidential primary election, with New York senator Kirsten Gilibrand, California senator Kamala Harris, Hawaii representative Tulsi Gabbard and Elizabeth Warren officially in the race.
