During the debate, Donald Trump denied claiming that global warming is a Chinese hoax—“I do not say that,” Trump insisted. The internet quickly found precisely that claim.

But despite several prominent people running with it, Trump’s camp did not delete his 2012 tweet claiming that China invented global warming to put the U.S. manufacturing industry in the toilet. It’s still up. Here it is, in all its glory.

For what it’s worth, it does appear to be rather cold in the room tonight.

Update, 10:27 p.m. EDT: Ironically, Twitter user @itsjuanlove deleted his tweet.
