Donald Trump is reiterating his long-stated campaign pledge if elected he will "cancel billions in global warming payments" to the United Nations, saying Wednesday the money is better spent at home.

At a rally in Florida, the GOP nominee outlined the case for his election Nov. 8, the Daily Caller reported.

"We will also cancel billions in global warming payments to the United Nations, and use that money to support America's vital environmental infrastructure and natural resources," he told supporters.

Trump has been lashing out at the U.N. global climate accord since last spring, though his vow to cancel the mandate has run into opposition, including from the former U.S. special envoy for climate change, who insists the United States "has no power" to do so.

The GOP nominee tweeted in 2012 the "concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive."

He later claimed he was kidding, and campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told CNN in September that Trump believes "climate change is naturally occurring," but the causes are not man-made.
