“As I’m sure you’re all aware, Trump and I have a few differences of opinion,” Sanders, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, said while campaigning in Ames, Iowa, according to KCCI 8, a local CBS affiliate. “But maybe the most profound difference is that Trump is maintaining the myth that climate change is a hoax.”
Sanders added that Trump is “working overtime to make sure that we have more carbon emissions,” before noting that the president made a “profound remark” in regards to wind turbines causing cancer.
“And he’s a profound scientist, someone who’s researched the issue for years and uniquely came up with that conclusion,” Sanders said.
Trump in early April floated the claim that the noise wind turbines emit causes cancer while speaking at the National Republican Congressional Committee’s annual spring dinner.
“If you have a windmill anywhere near your house, congratulations, your house just went down 75 percent in value. And they say the noise causes cancer,” Trump said.
There is no evidence to back Trump’s claim that noise from wind turbines may cause cancer.

Trump has repeatedly voiced critical comments about wind power. He said at a rally in Michigan earlier this year that the power source was unreliable because the wind doesn’t always blow.
“If it doesn’t blow, you can forget about television for that night,” Trump said.
