Trump has not ruled out the possibility that the U.S. will enter the world of big data and big data analytics to fight climate change.
Trump said on Twitter Sunday that he would use big data to fight global warming, but that it will be “winning” in that effort.
“I think you’ll see big data.
We’re going to win in big number.
You can say winning and winning is winning.
I think winning is what we have to do,” he said.”
Big data is winning now.

“I just want us to get on with it, but I want to move it forward,” Trump said.
The president, who has been under intense pressure to enact his climate agenda, has been working on the strategy to do so for months, with the support of Vice President Mike Pence and other top officials.
The White House and the Trump transition team declined to comment Sunday on Trump’s comments.
“We are focused on working to make sure that our people get the facts and are able to get the information that they need,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.
But Trump, who often says he will take a “hard line” against China over its trade practices, told Fox that he will continue to pressure China to abide by U.N. climate commitments.
