Washington (CNN)In response to the chilly temperatures early Monday, Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump tweeted, "Man, we could use a big fat dose of global warming!"
Donald Trump tweets 'We could use' global warming
It's not the first time Trump's talked about climate change and global warming on the campaign trail.
Last month, Trump insisted that he was "not a believer in climate change," claiming that extreme weather patterns scientists attribute to man-made climate changes are simply "weather."
"It's called weather changes and you have storm and you have rain and you have beautiful days," Trump said.
Trump's opponent, former New York Gov. George Pataki, believes in man-made climate change, and took to Twitter to poke fun at the front-runner's tweet.
Maybe the Mexicans will pay for a wall so big that it will keep out illegal immigrants, terrorists & #ClimateChange," he tweeted.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported earlier this year that July had the highest average temperatures since record-keeping began, and put 2015 to be the hottest year on record.
