"In the handsome Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded", Trump tweeted.
Parts of Minnesota and North Dakota saw temperatures well below minus 30 this week, and nearby states even logged multiple weather-related deaths, USA Today reported Thursday.

The euro was down 0.3 percent against the dollar at $1.1439 EUR= , pressured by comments from the Bundesbank's Weidmann. The Fed raised rates four times last year including in December, when it signaled it would do so twice more this year.
So it's not exactly a surprise that he believes that this week's record-breaking cold is proof that climate change is a farce. "Weather is what conditions of the atmosphere are over a short period of time, and climate is how the atmosphere "behaves" over relatively long periods of time".
As climate scientists constantly stress, weather does not equal climate. Climate is like personality, which is long term and over large areas the size of continents, hemispheres and the planet.
Disruptive snow blanketed the Midwestern United States during the latter part of the weekend and into the start of this workweek, dropping up to a foot of snow over the region.
"That doesn't change the overall story that most years are warmer than they used to be", Blumenfeld said. "A harder charging, grittier and more palpable campaign focused on climate impacts in "red' America could prove a lot more effective" than abstract efforts to talk about the benefits of energy efficiency, the study said".

On the other side was Czech physicist Lubos Motl, who called the extreme-weather narrative a "pseudo-scientific scam" in a Tuesday post, while Climate Depot's Marc Morano argued that record cold "does not disprove 'global warming, ' but it certainly did not cause it".
So, while climate and weather are two different concepts, the changing climate has a significant impact on the weather.
