Biden and Johnson sat down for talks in Cornwall on Thursday ahead of the G7 summit, in which climate change is set to be high on the agenda.
"Biden just said that he was told by the Joint Chiefs of Staff that Climate Change is our greatest threat," Trump wrote in a statement, taking Biden's remarks out of context.
"If that is the case, and they actually said this, he ought to immediately fire the Joint Chiefs of Staff for being incompetent!"
Trump's remarks came in response to a speech Biden gave to US troops as he arrived in England on Wednesday.
While the Joint Chiefs of Staff have repeatedly warned of the threat of climate change, in his speech, Biden was referring to advice the Joint Chiefs gave him at the start of his term as vice president.
"When I went over in the Tank in the Pentagon, when I first was elected vice president, with President Obama, the military sat us down to let us know what the greatest threats facing America were,” Biden said.
"And this is not a joke: You know what the Joint Chiefs told us the greatest threat facing America was? Global warming. Because there'll be significant population movements, fights over land, millions of people leaving places because they're literally sinking below the sea in Indonesia, because of the fights over what is arable land anymore,” he added.9Trump's remarks came in response to a speech Biden gave to US troops as he arrived in England on WednesdayCredit: PA 9The current Joint Chiefs (shown above) were appointed by TrumpCredit: Department of Defense
The officials who gave Biden the advice back in 2008 are no longer in office.
The current Joint Chiefs were appointed by Trump.
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Gen. Mark Milley, testified before Congress last week that climate change is indeed a pressing threat.
"Climate change is a threat. Climate change has significant impact on military operations, and we have to take it into consideration," Milley said.
"Climate change is going to impact natural resources, for example. It's going to impact increased instability in various parts of the world. It's going to impact migrations and so on."
He continued: "But the president is looking at it at a much broader angle than I am. I'm looking at it from a strictly military standpoint. And from a strictly military standpoint, I'm putting China, Russia up there."9Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Gen.

In various other statements issued on Thursday, Trump celebrated his "exonerations" from a series of "illegal witch hunts", including Robert Mueller's Russia probe against him and his administration.
"Now that I have been totally exonerated on the Mueller Witch Hunt with a charge of No Collusion, I have often wondered, if a fake investigation is illegally started based on information provided and paid for by the DNC and the Clinton campaign, shouldn’t they be held accountable?" Trump asked.
"Not to mention, wasting tens of millions of taxpayer dollars and interfering with years of a presidential administration? I fought the made-up Hoax strongly and effectively, and I won."
Trump also called the allegations against him "fabricated."
"They fabricated, out of thin air, the fake allegation that I obstructed justice, and I won that too. Think of it, how can you obstruct justice when you were fighting a false and illegally submitted narrative?"
Trump also sought to take a victory lap for other so-called "illegal witch hunts" against him.9In various other statements issued on Thursday, Trump celebrated his 'exonerations' from a series of 'illegal witch hunts'Credit: Getty Images - Getty 9Trump called for Clinton to be punshed for pushing the Russia 'hoax'Credit: Getty
Earlier this week, an Interior Department inspector general's report found that US Park Police did not clear protesters from a park outside of the White House last year so then-President Trump could take a photo at a nearby church.
Amid national racial injustice protests ignited by the police killing of George Floyd last year, on June 1, 2020, Trump walked from the White House to St. John's Church which had been damaged amid protests.
As he did, law enforcement violently cleared what had been mostly peaceful protesters in Lafayette Park.
Trump then stood in front of the church and held up a bible.
"This week I have been totally exonerated by the Inspector General in the clearing of Lafayette Park, despite earlier reports that it was done for political purposes," Trump wrote in his statement.
"And I have also been totally exonerated in Congress by the testimony of former White House lawyer Don McGahn. It came, it went, and it was a big 'nothingburger'.”
He added: "But fear not, the Radical Left, country destroying, illegal Witch Hunts continue, and I will win those too!"9He blasted the Mueller report as a 'witch hunt'Credit: AFP
In a third statement, Trump celebrated G7 leaders calling for an investigation into the origins of Covid-19 and demanded that China pay $10 million in reperations.
"It is now unanimous, and I have been proven right (once again) that the initial World Health Organization Report on the Wuhan Lab was flawed and must be redone, this time by a truly transparent investigation," he said.
"We were right about the China Virus from the beginning, and now the entire world sees it."
Trump has long supported the notion that Covid-19 was leaked from a lab in Wuhan, despite rebuttals from public health officials.Most read in UncategorizedJOE'S LOVE-INBiden touts special relationship with Boris & jokes he's not going back to USBreakingSHOPPER LOCKDOWNMall shooting sees at least ‘one hurt’ as shoppers flee after gunfireLatestBLAZING INFERNOThree homes go up in flames and man seen ‘firing gun at the scene’SUPERMARKET RAMPAGEGunman dies after 'killing 1 adult & a child' in grocery store shootingJILL-TEDJill Biden goes to shake hands with Boris Johnson – but he elbow bumps her insteadMAKING HIM WAITBiden dodges Boris greeting & tells him to WAIT so he can elbow bump Carrie
"This is why the Chinese Communist Party should pay $10 Trillion in global reparations for what they allowed to happen, the worst event in world history," Trump added.
"Even here in the United States, the so-called experts like Dr. Fauci were wrong about the Wuhan Lab and China’s role the entire time. Just think how bad things would have gotten if I followed Dr. Fauci’s advice and never closed down travel from China (and other things)?
"Dr. Fauci likes to say that he is 'science,' when in fact he is merely science fiction!" Trump quipped.Biden warns climate change is the greatest threat to American security

Job for Life: U.N. Chief Guterres Granted New, Unopposed Five-Year Term
The U.N. General Assembly waived a democratic vote Friday and simply re-appointed Secretary General Antonio Guterres unopposed to another five-year term leading the peak globalist body.
The veteran socialist stood as the sole candidate and was anointed by “acclamation” in the chamber of the U.N.’s New York headquarters.
Immediately after his re-appointment, Guterres took the oath of office and told U.N. member nations “to do everything we can to overcome current geostrategic divides and dysfunctional power relations.”
“There are too many asymmetrics and paradoxes,” he said. “They need to be addressed head on.”
Speaking in a mix of English, French and Spanish – three of the UN’s six official languages – Guterres, 72, expressed hope that “what we are living through today in terms of mistrust is, I hope, an aberration but it cannot become the norm.”
His call for the world to unite behind his leadership continues a theme the former Portugeuse prime minister has repeatedly expressed throughout his tenure as he seeks to reshape the world to meet new challenges.

Climate is near the top of the challenge he foresees.
Last December, Breitbart News reported Gutteres claimed nature is determined to destroy humanity through flood, famine, fire, and pestilence, prophesizing the time has come for us to repent and mend our ways through a great climate and economic reset.
He declared companies must adjust their business models for a green economy, and that means making carbon-free investments and following the plans for recovery as laid out by the globalist organization.
Guterres said instead of looking to a return to “normal,” the post-coronavirus world should take advantage of the “pandemic reset” to create “a more equitable and just world.”
Here’s what Guterres demanded the nations of the world do:
- Put a price on carbon
- Phase out fossil fuel finance and end fossil fuel subsidies
- Shift the tax burden from income to carbon, and from tax payers to polluters
- Integrate the goal of carbon neutrality (a similar concept to net zero) into all economic and fiscal policies and decisions
- Help those around the world who are already facing the dire impacts of climate change
If we don’t, he said, we’re living on borrowed time, repeating a warning he has made before demanding changes to the way the world is run.
To that end, Guterres believes the world needs “an overarching level of multilateral governance” that can sideline problematic “national interests,” something he has lamented erodes existing U.N. instruments such as the Security Council.

On the 75th anniversary of the establishment of the United Nations last year, he said there is a need to “re-imagine the way nations cooperate.”
“We need a networked multilateralism, bringing together the U.N. system, regional organisations, international financial institutions and others. And we need an inclusive multilateralism, drawing on the indispensable contributions of civil society, business, cities, regions and, in particular, with greater weight given to the voices of youth,” Guterres outlined.
He claimed in the 21st century, national governments are no longer the only political and power reality, adding the U.N. needs to assume an overall global role because “we need an effective multilateralism that can function as an instrument of global governance where it is needed.”
Guterres served as prime minister of Portugal from 1995 to 2002 before leaving national politics to become United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
He assumed his current role as secretary-general in 2017.Follow Simon Kent on Twitter: Follow @SunSimonKent or e-mail to: [email protected]
