It’s not gonna kill us at all.” Obama spent last few days at an international climate change summit in France, saying climate change is a “massive problem” but one the world is going to solve. Trump has increased his lead in the GOP race in recent days, according to the Real Clear average, which shows him leading retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson 28.3 to 18.8 percent.
