Polar vortex: Trump demands US citizens turn heating on full and open all windows

Washington (dpo) - US residents are shivering in one of the worst cold snaps in the country’s history – in the face of temperatures falling to -40 °F (-40 °C), several US states have already declared a state of emergency. Today, US President Donald Trump also addressed citizens: he recommended all inhabitants of affected areas turn their heating up all the way and open all windows to fight the record cold.

“Where is global warming when you need it?” asked Trump in a televised speech. “Now it is up to every single one of us to kick-start the weather. Make America Warm Again!” After his speech, the President proceeded to set a good example by having all of the White House windows opened and the thermostat set to 120 °F (49 °C). He also tweeted, saying:
He added that the heating effect would be even greater if citizens left ovens, waffle irons and hair dryers switched on, while freezers and refrigerators should stay closed as much as possible.
