Gore Discusses Climate Policy in 'Productive' Meeting With Trump

A Trump spokesman said before Gore's arrival that Trump would not be meeting with the former vice president.

Reacting to Gore's comments today on "CNN's Erin Burnett Outfront", Stein said that "I find it unusual, I'm not sure I believe it, I don't know what's going on".

As someone who is skeptical of the Trump presidency, knowing that a woman like Ivanka is in my corner somehow makes me feel a whole lot better.

Praising Ivanka Trump for her commitment to climate change, Gore said her passion was evident during the meeting ahead of the discussion with Donald Trump.

In a meeting with The New York Times last month, Trump said there is "some connectivity" related to humans and climate change.

In his fight for climate action, Gore might have an ally in Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump, with whom he was supposed to meet on Monday but ended up spending the bulk of the time with the president-elect himself.

Gore declined to say what the two leaders had discussed about during the meeting.

When asked what was discussed, Gore said only, "To be continued".

In a possibly related matter, Trump is scheduled to meet on Tuesday with Rex Tillerson, the head of Exxon Mobil Corp (NYSE:) who possibly is being considered for the job of secretary of state in the Trump administration. If Ivanka moves forward in promoting a climate change agenda, she will be in opposition to numerous top officials who are making up the incoming administration.

He starred in the documentary An Inconvenient Truth, that continues to be credited for raising global awareness. Gore, one of the world's most prominent climate activists, met with Trump on Monday, offering hope to some environmentalists. He's also mocked Democratic rhetoric about climate change.

THEY both have very opposing views on climate change, but former Vice President Al Gore and President-elect Donald Trump managed to put differences aside on Monday to have an "extremely interesting conversation". The president-elect was a later addition, NPR reported.

He spent about 90 minutes inside, first with Ivanka Trump, then with her father.

Ivanka Trump apparently wants to champion issues in the name of her father (issues with which he apparently disagrees) all while serving as part of the seemingly porous barrier between the president and his business empire.

The meeting was confirmed by Jason Miller, the communications director for Donald Trump's transition team.
