Stephen Hawking on Potential Second Trump Term: 'God Forbid'

Five most powerful people in Britain are women, says Prof Stephen Hawking

Five most powerful people in Britain are women, says Prof Stephen Hawking

This isn't the first time that Hawking has gone in on Trump: In May 2016, during the US presidential election, Hawking called then-candidate Trump "a demagogue, who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator", CNN reported at the time.

Hawking, who has said multiple times that human-caused climate change is one of the greatest threats to humankind, was also fiercely critical of Trump's appointment of Scott Pruitt to the Environmental Protection Agency.

Hawking replied, "I have no idea".

"I have already completed a zero-gravity flight, which allowed me to float weightless, but my ultimate ambition is to fly into space", Hawking said.

"His priority will be to satisfy his electorate who are neither liberal, nor that well-informed".

In regards to Corbyn, Hawking said that he is unlikely to make Labour win any general election as he has failed to come across as a "strong leader".

Hawking said Trump had been elected by those "who felt disenfranchised by the governing elite in a revolt against globalisation".

Those same fans should get at least at 50 percent discount from the home team's owner on a night any star is resting. Fundamentally at issue is who is to be served by a coach's decision to sit or start his stars.

He also disagreed with Trump's travel ban, saying that it should be replaced by a more "effective, intelligence based approach". I would like to visit again, and to talk to other scientists.

"Climate change is one of the great dangers we face, and it's one we can prevent".

"I have always supported women's rights".

"I moved the admission of women to my college, Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge", he added.

During an interview with the legendary British scientist on Monday, Morgan posited that the U.K.'s roster of high-profile women in politics points to "scientific evidence" of gender equality.

The world-famous physicist said billionaire businessman Richard Branson had offered him a seat on his Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo. He told the Prime Minister in November: "I deal with tough, mathematical, complex questions every day, but please don't ask me to help with Brexit".

And on whether he had worked out the mystery of true love since he had solved the mystery of life, Professor Hawking said: "Thankfully, this is beyond human reasoning. People who boast about their IQs are losers", Hawking replied - getting a laugh out of Morgan.
