This week, President Trump discussed the major progress America has made on the environment. He unveiled some staggering facts about the United States—facts that liberals don’t want you to know about. As he championed our nation’s success, he called out the toxic Green New Deal. AOC and the left are hurting after this.
Democrats would have you believe Donald Trump does not care about the environment. He did roll back most, if not all, of Obama’s heavy environmental regulations. Doesn’t that prove Trump hates the earth and wants it destroyed? Or, perhaps, Trump was getting rid of useless rules that only hurt major U.S. industries and destroyed jobs?
But he did take us out of the Paris Climate Accord, right? That deal was supposed to ensure the U.S. and other nations would do more to protect the environment. Who cares that the accord would have cost us billions—not to mention countless jobs—and would have done nothing to stop China and India from polluting the earth?
This week, President Trump spoke about America’s success in protecting the environment. Despite the hysteria generated by the media—and the wild claims environmentalists make about our planet—we’re actually doing quite well. In fact, the United States is leading the way in reducing climate problems. In reality, we’re ranked number one in the world.
That’s something you never hear from the left.
Trump noted America’s successes in leading the world in carbon emissions reductions while other signatories on the Paris Climate Accord have failed to deliver results.
“And today, the United States is ranked — listen to this — number one in the world for access to clean drinking water — ranked number one in the world,” Trump said. “One of the main messages of air pollution — particulate matter — is six times lower here than the global average.” [Source: Daily Wire]
According to the president, since 2000 the U.S. has reduced carbon emissions more than any other country. Every other country that signed the Paris Climate Accord is lagging behind us! That’s definitely something the left doesn’t want you to know.
Every day, we hear from liberals about how the earth is dying. They demand we make radical changes to save it. Yet they don’t even acknowledge the massive success the U.S. has achieved over the years, success that has continued under Trump. It seems Democrats are less concerned with real results and more concerned with spreading hysteria and fear.
President Trump called out the left and their radical plans, particularly the foolish Green New Deal.
“While we’re focused on practical solutions, more than 100 Democrats in Congress now support the so-called Green New Deal. Their plan is estimated to cost our economy nearly $100 trillion — a number unthinkable, a number not affordable even in the best of times,” Trump said… “It’ll kill millions of jobs, it’ll crush the dreams of the poorest Americans, and disproportionately harm minority communities. I will not stand for it. We will defend the environment, but we will also defend American sovereignty, American prosperity, and we will defend American jobs.” [Source: Daily Wire]
We knew that the Green New Deal was bad, but $93 trillion bad? How can Democrats back a plan that would destroy major industries, cripple our transportation sector, eliminate millions of jobs, and sink our economy?
The plan is laughably bad. It would outlaw air travel, require every building in the country to be rebuilt, and it would drive the price of energy up through the roof.
Nobody in their right mind would support that plan. But more than 100 Democrats in Congress—that’s about half of them in the House—want this plan to be put into effect. A plan that would cripple our nation, sending us into the Dark Ages.
Meanwhile, President Trump is putting America first while helping the environment in real ways. Carbon emissions are down and dropping. At the same time, more jobs are coming into the country and wages are rising.
Some said that could never be done. Well, guess what? Trump is in the business of doing the impossible.
