President Donald Trump skipped a G7 meeting on climate change Monday, leaving an empty chair in a room filled with other world leaders.

Aides attributed the snub to scheduling conflicts with Germany and India, but the leaders of both of those countries found time to sit in on the session.

When asked by a reporter on Monday if he had any thoughts on climate change, Trump called himself an “environmentalist,” said that the US “has tremendous wealth” and that he was “not going to lose that wealth on dreams, on windmills, which, frankly, aren’t working too well.”
