At Monday's presidential debate at Hofstra University at Hempstead, New York, Hillary Clinton accused Donald Trump of claiming that climate change was a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese.

“Donald thinks that climate change is a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese. I think it's real," Clinton said.

"I did not say that. I did not say that," Trump replied.

Which is false: The tweet is still live and the screenshot is fake.

The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.
