New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was critical of comments made by President Obama in his appearance on 60 Minutes. "The president sees hundreds of thousands of people being murdered in Syria by their own leader, millions more literally running for their lives to other parts of the world, and he talks about climate change," Christie said.

Frontrunner Donald Trump took to Twitter to air his criticism.

"President Obama was terrible on @60Minutes tonight. He said CLIMATE CHANGE is the most important thing, not all of the current disasters!" Trump tweeted.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said, "this president is obsessed with climate change while the rest of the world understands the real danger is islamic fanaticism. I think he thinks a sunburn is worse than a beheading."

All three candidates poll in the top ten and are expected to participate in the next Republican debate on October 28, 2015.
