Republican Presidential Nominee Donald Trump has once again wooed his supporters as he promises to cancel the pledge of the outgoing Obama administration to give a couple of billion dollars as global warming payments to the United Nations.

During his rally in Florida, Trump outlined the need to cancel the global warming payment. He proposed that the payments could be more beneficial if used in the U.S. alone. Trump promises to spend the money in environmental projects, which include repairing the Herbert Hoover Dike in Lake Okeechobee and protecting the Florida Everglades.

“We will also cancel billions in global warming payments to the United Nations, and use that money to support America’s vital environmental infrastructure and natural resources,” Trump told his supporters during the rally, as per Daily Caller. “We’re spending hundreds of billions of dollars. We don’t even know who’s doing what with the money,”

The U.S. under the leadership of Obama has vowed to give a total of $3 billion to the Green Climate Fund of the United Nation. So far, the administration has already handed about $500 million to the organization.

Donald Trump has been known to belong around the edge of climate-change deniers. He once tweeted that the climate change was perpetuated by the Chinese to hinder the manufacturing industries in the U.S. He later one labeled his tweet as a joke and said that the climate change is naturally occurring and not caused by human activities.

Trump has also given couple of possible changes in the U.S. once he gains control of the white house. Previous reports showed that Trump plans to renegotiate U.S.’s involvement in the Paris Agreement. Furthermore, inside sources also reported that Trump is eyeing leading climate change denier Myron Ebell to lead the Environmental Protection Agency.
