The activist and former VP also met with Ivanka Trump earlier to discuss climate change, something the president-elect has called a "hoax."

Al Gore says he had a "productive" meeting with President-elect Donald Trump on Monday.

The former Vice President met with Trump at Trump Tower in New York City and spoke briefly to reporters afterward. He categorized his meeting as a "sincere search for common ground."

Gore also dubbed it "an extremely interesting conversation," but when asked what was discussed, he only said "to be continued" before leaving.

Gore says he also met with Ivanka Trump, the president-elect's daughter. Transition officials said earlier Monday that the two would discuss climate change, which is Gore's signature issue.

The president-elect called man-made climate change a hoax and has pledged to undo a number of regulations to protect the environment.
