By Wednesday, dangerously cold wind chills caused by a displaced polar vortex are expected to drop temperatures in the Midwest near negative 30F and the wind chill could be as low as negative 50F or 60F - the lowest they've been in more than two decades, Weather.com reported.

"You're kidding, right?! You do know Global Warming is causing climate change which means MORE deeper colder winters for the Midwest sad #badforfarmers #ActOnClimate #ClimateChangeIsReal", another reply to Trump's tweet read.

"In the attractive Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded", Trump tweeted. What the hell is going on with Global Waming (sic)? "People can't last outside even for minutes".

Citing the bad cold that has gripped the Midwest, Trump taunted the phenomenon of global warming asking it to "come back fast" in his tweet.

Despite Trump's claims, 2018 was among the hottest on record across the globe and the planet is expected to get hotter according to experts.
