Al Gore meets Donald Trump

Former Vice President Al Gore met with President-elect Donald Trump and his daughter, Ivanka, at Trump Tower in New York Monday morning, apparently to talk about climate change, reports The Tennessean.

The former U.S. Senator from Tennessee and former Democratic presidential candidate  said the majority of the meeting was spent with Trump.

“I had a lengthy and very productive session with the president-elect. It was a sincere search for areas of common ground. I had a meeting beforehand with Ivanka Trump. The bulk of the time was with the president-elect, Donald Trump. I found it an extremely interesting conversation, and to be continued, and I’m just going to leave it at that,” Gore said, according to pool reports.

Gore did not say what was discussed at the meeting. A senior aide to Gore confirmed to The Tennessean the meeting was about climate change.

Despite endorsing Hillary Clinton, Gore said the day after the election that he would work with Trump on climate change. “Last night President-elect Trump said he wanted to be a president for all Americans. In that spirit, I hope that he will work with the overwhelming majority of us who believe that the climate crisis is the greatest threat we face as a nation,” Gore said.
