Anthony Scaramucci told CNN's Dana Bush on Sunday that Trump is not a climate denier, but simply opposes the Paris climate accord. The Mooch predicted that Americans would see the common sense in Trump's decision to withdraw from the deal at some point in 2018.

I think you guys should ask him directly if he's a climate change denier or not. I think you will find you will be surprised by that answer.
  • "My prediction is, is that some time at the end of 2018, people will look back at him and say, wow, he had a lot of common sense by getting out of that climate accord."

Why it matters: On Thursday, President Trump tweeted: "In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year's Eve on record. Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against. Bundle up!"
