2020 presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., said climate change poses a greater threat to national security than ISIS or Al-Qaeda, during a campaign speech in Des Moines, Iowa, on Sunday.

“Four years ago I came here, to Iowa, and I was asked what is the great issue of national security that we face? And people thought, I would say, ISIS or Al Qaeda, and these are big topics. The answer I gave, in terms of national security, is climate change,” said Sanders, as the crowd cheered.
